Real Sociedad already secured a spot in the top four. However, the club wants to surpass the 70-point mark, for which it must defeat Sevilla. According to the La Liga lines, they shouldn’t have too much trouble doing so, but let’s not forget that the visitors just won the UEFA Europa League and finishing the season with another victory would be the icing on the cake.
Real Sociedad: Well Balanced
Real Sociedad finished 10-3-6 on the road and are currently 10-5-3 at home, securing a spot in the top four, which means they’ll play in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Last weekend, they put up a fight at Wanda Metropolitano against Atletico Madrid but lost 2-1. They won possession with 51% and took five shots on target, but only Alexander Sorloth managed to score.
Now, they return to Anoeta, where they only lost one of their last 10 games. Most recently, they defeated Almeria 1-0. Regardless of the result, they scored in eight of those matches and finished with a clean sheet five times.
Individually, Sorloth is the team’s top scorer with 12 goals. He’s followed by Takefusa Kubo. There’s also Mikel Merino, who leads the team in assists with nine. Only Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid has more assists than him, with 14.
All the above explains why the home side is heavily favored in the La Liga odds thanks to a -140 price. There’s also the fact that they didn’t play midweek, meaning they’ll be more rested.
Midweek, Sevilla rewrote history by winning the UEL for the seventh time. The club defeated AS Roma in penalties after the match finished 1-1. Therefore, they’ll also play in the UCL next season. Now, if Sevilla finishes seventh in La Liga, another Spanish team will play in the Conference League.
Sevilla lost 2-1 to Real Madrid last Saturday. Rafa Mir scored the opener only three minutes into the game, but Real Madrid turned things around thanks to a brace scored by Rodrygo.
Their road record isn’t the best, 6-5-7, but they didn’t lose any of their last five matches. Most recently, they drew 1-1 to Elche.
Youseff En-Nesyri is the team’s top scorer with eight goals. He’s followed by Mir, who has scored six.
Regarding the Las Vegas La Liga odds, the visitors are offering a +350 price straight up.
