Sevilla vs. Real Sociedad: How will Real Sociedad Fare Against La Liga’s Meanest Defence?

Benson Chikezie, Senior Author

Real Madrid are running away with the league title after establishing a 10-point lead at the summit, but Sevilla, who are in 2nd place, have been outstanding this season. As they will host 6th-placed Real Sociedad this weekend, Sevilla will look to strengthen their hold on 2nd spot with Barcelona and Atlético Madrid breathing down their necks.

The match is scheduled for 22:30 IST on the 20th of March and promises to be a cracker. Real Sociedad have scored the least number of goals (29) for a team in the top half of La Liga, and Sevilla have conceded the least number of goals in the entire league (19). It is a tricky fixture, one which Sevilla’s schedule will undoubtedly impact. They travel to West Ham for the Europa League playoffs, while Sociedad have since crashed out, beaten by Leipzig, and have earned themselves a whole week of rest.

Teams Status

Take a look at the latest form and team news for both sides:

Sevilla Form and Team News

Sevilla have been solid all season and can look on with pride on what they have managed to achieve in La Liga so far. They have lost only twice all season. Minus their penchant for drawing matches, they should be much closer to Real Madrid than they currently are. They remain in continental competition and travel to West Ham before this fixture.

In 28 league games, they have 15 wins, 11 draws (only one behind Cadiz’s league-high tally of 12), and 2 losses, scoring 40 goals and conceding 19 (the lowest goals conceded in La Liga). They have 2 wins, and 3 draws in their last 5 matches, further underlining their draw record. Rafa Mir is Sevilla’s leading goalscorer with 8 goals.

For their team news, Sevilla still have at six players out with different injuries. Karim Rekik, Fernando, Suso, Papu Gomez, Diego Carlos, and Gonzalo Montiel remain injured and will likely miss Real Sociedad’s visit.

Real Sociedad Form and Team News

Real Sociedad’s early-season form (a 17-match unbeaten run) has been their best this season, and although they still grind out results from time to time, the inconsistency is telling. They have 4 wins, 4 draws, and 2 losses in their last 10 matches in all competitions and have been struggling with scoring goals, especially in the league.

With 29 goals scored and 29 conceded in La Liga, Sociedad sit in 6th position with 47 points from 28 games. They have 13 wins, 8 draws, and 7 losses, and with 3 wins and 2 draws in their last 5, they appear to be on an upward trajectory going into this fixture. Mikel Oyarzarbal has scored the most goals for Sociedad in La Liga this season with 9 and contributed 3 assists.

For Sociedad’s injuries and suspensions, Nacho Monreal, Carlos Fernandez, and Ander Barrenetxea remain on the sidelines with long-term injuries. At the same time, Aihen Nunez is a doubt for the trip to Seville.

Tipster’s Angle

From the head-to-head record between Sevilla and Real Sociedad, Sevilla have won 3 of their last 5 meetings, with the other 2 ending in goalless draws. The home team have also been solid at home this season, winning 10 and drawing 3 of their 13 home games.

Five of Real Sociedad’s defeats this season have come away from home and facing a team yet to lose at home all season presents the visitors a huge challenge. Here are the possible outcomes we expect in this fixture:

Tip: Sevilla to Win or Draw @ 1.23

The home team have been formidable in front of their fans this season, losing none of their home games so far. They are the more compact of both sides, and teams have found them difficult to break down. We expect Sevilla to win or, in their usual fashion, salvage yet another draw from this fixture. Sevilla to win or draw is available on the sportsbook at 1.23 odds.

Tip: Draw in Either Half @ 1.41

The last meeting between Sevilla and Real Sociedad was in September, and it ended in a goalless draw. When these two meet, goals are either in short supply, no supply, or much supply. Four of their last 10 meetings have come in draws, so we expect a draw in at least one half. Draw in Either half is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.41 odds.


Real Sociedad’s struggles in front of the goal are telling, and as they travel to face La Liga’s strongest defense, they need a miracle to get past them. Sevilla are yet to lose at home this season and will be looking to strengthen their hold on 2nd place and put more pressure on Real Madrid at the top.
