Sevilla vs Real Sociedad Prediction 20 March 2022

Sevilla hosts Real Sociedad in round 29 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, March 20th at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán (Sevilla)
Sevilla is in 2nd place in the standings with 56 points after 28 rounds. Julen Lopetegui’s team gained 15 victories and 11 draws and suffered two losses. In the 1st half of the season, the Red-Whites showed results that gave reason to consider them as opponents to Real Madrid in the fight for the title. However, six draws in the last eight rounds prevented Lopetegui’s team from imposing competition on the leader of La Liga. The task of keeping the current position in the table is now more urgent. On March 17, Sevilla players completed their performance in European competitions. Having beaten West Ham in the first leg of the Europa League 1/8 finals (1-0), the Red-Whites lost in London in extra time (2-0) and left the tournament.

Real Sociedad is in 6th place in the La Liga standings with 47 points. Imanol Alguacil’s team has 13 victories, eight draws, and seven losses after 28 matches. The White-Blues were relegated from European competitions last month, so they have focused on the national championship. In the last four rounds of LaLiga, they gained three victories and lost only to Real Madrid at the beginning of the month (4-1). On March 13, Real Sociedad scored three points in the home match against Alaves. The White-Blues created many dangerous chances near the opponents’ penalty area but scored only one goal with the efforts of Martin Zubimendi.
Oyarzabal’s injury is a serious blow to Real Sociedad’s ambitions. This midfielder is the best offensive player of the White-Blues with 12 (9+3) productive actions in 22 matches. He plays a crucial role in the team’s attack, and it will take time to rebuild tactical formations without a leading player. Given the weak away statistics of the Basques (one win in the last five games), it is difficult to expect them to win in Sevilla. The Andalusians have not suffered a single home defeat in LaLiga so far. Namely, they gained ten victories and three draws. The hosts can extend this successful streak, but it will not be easy. They are exhausted by a difficult calendar, and the 120-minute confrontation against West Ham in London has harmed their freshness. Lopetegui’s team, which has the best defense in the league with 19 goals conceded, is unlikely to beat Real Sociedad with a big goal difference.

Prediction for the match:

Sevilla to win with a 1-goal difference or Draw
