Sevilla vs Real Sociedad Prediction & Match Preview

Sevilla vs Real Sociedad
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.


All eyes will be on Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan when Sevilla and Real Sociedad face each other in the La Liga round 18.

Los Sevillanos shared the spoils with Real Betis in the Seville derby, with los Beticos failing to convert a penalty kick.

Sevilla were anything but impressive in the local derby, but it is well known that they produce much better showings at home than on the travels.

The good news for boss Julen Lopetegui is that important midfielder Fernando returns from suspension.

La Real, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Osasuna in their last league match.

The Basques have been struggling in La Liga ever since David Silva suffered an injury, and given the number of absentees in the away team, we are tempted to put our money on Julen Lopetegui’s men this time out.

La Real are in the midst of an injury crisis at the moment with a number of key players like Nacho Monreal and David Silva out with minor injuries.
