Real Sociedad hosts Granada CF in round 24 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, February 13th at Reale Arena (San Sebastian)
Real Sociedad hasn’t lost a single game after the New Year’s break. In the last four matches, the team gained one victory and three draws. These are not the worst results but not the best either. Due to them, Imanol Alguacil’s men dropped to 7th place in the standings. Now they have 35 points in their assets, but the sixth-ranked Villarreal also has 35 points. However, the Yellows played one match more. Real Sociedad has shown extremely cautious football this season. In 22 matches, the Basques scored 22 goals and conceded 21 times. 17 games ended with Under 2.5 goals scored. Real Sociedad does not shine at the home stadium, but does not fail either: five victories, four draws, and two defeats with a goal difference of 7-6. There is no other team in Spain that conceded and scored so little at home.

Granada has significantly slowed down lately. The team is approaching the 24th round against the backdrop of three defeats in a row. The total winless streak in the championship already amounts to five matches (three defeats and two draws). Naturally, such results could not but affect Granada’s position in the standings. At the moment, the team is in 16th place with 24 points scored. The gap from the relegation zone was reduced to six points. One of Granada’s biggest weaknesses in the current season is the away performance. In 12 away games, the Nasrids earned only nine points. All the away indicators look like this: one victory, six draws, and five defeats with a goal difference of 10-17. It is noteworthy that Robert Moreno’s men did not concede in only three away games.
In the first part of the current championship, Granada lost to Real Sociedad at home with a score of 2-3. And in the last LaLiga draw, the Basques were stronger than the Nasrids at Reale Arena (2-0). Real Sociedad is historically strong at home. And I think that the Basques will have a great opportunity to earn three points this weekend. Of course, it’s also about the opponent, who is not impressive on foreign pitches in the current season (only one victory in 12 away games). Most likely, the upcoming match will not be productive. After all, Alguacil’s men have scored only seven goals and conceded six times in 11 home games. It is unlikely that they will rush forward now.
