Real Sociedad – Levante : Preview & Prediction
For no one is a secret the Real Sociedad is a powerful team in attack and weak in defense. And this is much more noticeable when acting as a local in Anoeta. It is expected that he can repeat what he did against Deportivo two weeks ago, when he thrashed the Galicians without any hesitation. Paint to be a duel with spaces from the initial stage.
Actuality of Real Sociedad
The present of the team has been regrettable, losing many matches and giving up a lot of goals in their fence. With 26 units, it is far from the descent and any European competition. He comes from losing 5-2 to Real Madrid at the Bernabéu, adding 4 losses in his last 5 league appearances. It can be said that it is a foothold in defensive matters. He comes from leveling 2-2 against Salzburg for the Europa League (tie on the last play of the match).
Acting in Anoeta, the Real Sociedad has alternated good and bad results due to its constant defensive failures (4 victories, 3 parities and 7 falls). It is still a nice and offensive one when it is proposed, having to be more balanced to take a positive run against its people (two or more successes in a row). With 27 goals in favor and 23 against, little can be achieved in the championship.
The numbers of the team have been quite negative, demonstrating it by adding only draws and losses in their presentations. It comes from losing 3-1 against Valencia in Mestalla, staying with 20 points in total. Of course, in spite of everything, it is still a militant and uncomfortable to overcome due to its harsh style.
So be a rough and tactical square between the lines, Levante numbers as a visitor have not been very good to say (1 win, 6 draws and 4 falls). Their main goal in this condition is to improve their efficiency in the face of goal (9 goals scored and 17 received in their goal).
The last time the Real Sociedad and Levante collided took place in the first round (3-0 defeat for the Basques). In Anoeta, the Real has had problems to win in recent years, except in 2015 when he won 3-0. Of there, in more, 3 draws before this rival (1-1 in February of the 2013, 0-0 in February of the 2014 and 1-1 in March of the 2016).
Real Sociedad vs Levante Forecast
For bookmakers, the Basque side leaves as a favorite due to the local factor and especially because it has better players from midfield forward. The ideal and logical would be that the Real get another win and can chain a mini-streak at home after hitting previously Deportivo. His opponent is uncomfortable to face, but very irregular when he acts away from home. Considering everything said and the little goal that Levante has in this condition, we believe that the Basques can win by one or two goals difference. Everything will depend on the efficiency they have facing the rival arch. And we say this because opportunities will have.
