Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Buoyed by a 3-1 win over Almeria, Real Sociedad will be aiming to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Sevilla at their Reale Arena. La Real want to represent Spain in the Champions League for yet another term, but the Basques need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure a top-four finish. Keep in mind that Mikel Oyarzabal has joined the likes of Kieran Tierney, David Silva, and Martin Merquelanz in the recovery room.
Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Real Betis in the Seville derby before the international break. Diego Alonso’s men, though, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Real Sociedad’s party in San Sebastian. To make things even worse for the away team, important defender Nemanja Gudelj is banned due to the accumulation of yellow cards.
