Vela (22 ‘) and Zurutuza (35’) for Real Sociedad and Tana (56 ‘) for Las Palmas. The home / away condition deserves special attention, since although this is a match between the 7th and 20th of the overall standings, this is in fact a confrontation between the 11th placed in home games and the 18th as a visitor.
The home team is currently in 7th place with 18 points earned after 5 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, won at home to Eibar by (3-1). In the last match, he tied for Girona (1-1). This is a team that normally achieves more positive results as a visitor than at home, having won 10 points, scoring 11 goals and 10, and 8 points at the stadium with 14 goals scored and 12 goals conceded. In the last game they played, for the Europa League, won the Rosenborg away by (0-1). In the last 6 home games for the championship, Real Sociedad has 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, having won 8 points out of 18. The team conceded goals to their opponents in 9 of the last 10 games, so they have not shown great defensive solidity, but their attack has scored regularly, as they managed to achieve in 9 of the last 10 games in this competition. In 12 games in this competition, he only managed 1 turn on the scoreboard in the 6 games in which he conceded the first goal.
Real Sociedad started the Spanish Championship very positively, hitting three successive victories in the first rounds, but could not keep up the same pace and then went on to accumulate three consecutive defeats. Now the team has been alternating between wins, draws and losses but has lost only one of the last six games. In their last confrontation, the team did not have a great performance, but nevertheless managed to open the scoreboard early in the match, but did not hold the pressure of Girona, who reached the tie in the second half. The offensive performance in this last round was not consistent with what the team had been presenting throughout the competition, so much so that it still has the third best attack, with the third club finishing the most. Real Sociedad is leaving to want as principal, since it did not conquer half of the disputed points, and in that condition it has one of the three defenses more leaked. The coach is likely to set up the team at 4-3-3, with Illarramendi at the midfield.
The visiting team is currently in 20th place with 6 points, after 2 wins and 10 losses. In the penultimate match, lost out to Real Madrid by (3-0). In the last match, lost at home to Levante by (0-2). This is a team little affected by the home factor, that is, it achieves practically the same points at home and away, with 5 goals scored and 17 goals conceded at home, against 3 goals scored and 13 conceded. In the last 6 away games for the championship, Las Palmas has 1 win and 5 losses, having won 3 points out of 18.
In this competition, he lost the last 8 games he played. The team allowed their opponents goals in 9 of the last 10 games for this competition, so they have not been very strong defensively. This is a team that scored few times first and they only managed to open the scoring in 3 of their last 12 games in the Primera Division, of those 3 reached the break in lead in 1 and won in the late 90 ‘in 2. In 12 games in this competition, never managed to get back on the scoreboard in the 9 games in which he suffered the first goal. There are 2 periods in the last eight matches played as a visitor for all competitions: he scored 3 of his 7 goals between the minutes (76’-90 ‘); suffered 5 of his 14 goals in minutes (46’-60 ‘).
Las Palmas continues to perform poorly in this edition of the Spanish Championship, having won only two victories and now has eight consecutive defeats, a period in which they have scored only three goals, thus showing the inefficiency of their offensive sector. However, worse than the attack has been the defense of the team, which on only one occasion did not concede, and now figures as the most leaked of the competition, with an average of 2.5 goals conceded per game. In the last round, the team dominated the game, but failed to create a good volume of opportunities and was beaten indoors by Levante. The club is one of the four that least finish, which helps explain the undesirable numbers of the attack.
