Sociedad – Levante: Basques want to take advantage of Sevilla’s bad pass to get closer to Top 4

Sociedad – Levante: Basques want to take advantage of Sevilla’s bad pass to get closer to Top 4

Real Sociedad is undefeated for six stages and seems to have regained its good form from the start of the season, when it was six stages right on the 1st place. Now, the Basques want to take advantage of the bad pass that Sevilla goes through to blow the Andalusian team 4, the last leading in the Champions League. After Lopetegui’s team lost to Elche, in this round, the “txuri urdin” team can shorten the distance to only three points.

For that, however, Sociedad must pass Levante, a team that comes after the disappointment of missing the qualification in the King’s Cup final, being eliminated by Athletic Bilbao, after extra time. In the championship, however, Levante has only one failure in the last nine stages and another defeat in the last five trips in La Liga. In fact, the last two teams defeated “outside” by Levante are the Real Madrid and Atletico giants, so the Basques don’t have to think for a second that they will have an easy life.

In the round, in Valencia, Levante won 2-1. In fact, Paco Lopez’s team is undefeated in the last two matches played in San Sebastian. The last time Sociedad won was in 2018, 3-1, right in Valencia. Since then, there have been two draws, both 1-1, and two victories for Levante.

In the last five direct duels, both teams have scored each time. At the same time, more than 2.5 goals were scored in five of the last seven.

In the last ten matches on Anoeta in the championship, only one team won against the “txuri urdin” team, the leader of Atletico Madrid. Beyond that, Levante, as I already mentioned, has only one failure in the last five trips.

Sociedad and Levante are two of the teams with the most corners in La Liga. The Basques are on the 3rd place, with 136 corner kicks, while Levante is on the 7th, with 118.

The Basques are the third team with the most fouls committed, 377. Levante is a bit more good from this point of view, with only 337. However, the two teams are among those with the fewest cards received: Levante, with 46, e surpassed only by Barcelona (45) and Real Madrid (41). Sociedad is 55, but she is also in the “good” half of the ranking.

Paco Lopez is without the contribution of five players for this match: Campana, Postigo, Radoja, Melero and Sergio Leon. The hosts have the same well-known absences: Sangalli, Zaldua, Moya and Aritz.

Society: Remiro – Gorosabel, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Monreal – David Silva, Illarramndi, Mikel Merino – Portu, Isak, Oyarzabal

Levante: Aitor Fernandez – Son, Cok, Ruben Vezo, Rober Pier, Clerc – De Frutos, Vukcevic, Rochina – Roger, Morales
