Sevilla Goes for a Rare Victory on the Road against Real Sociedad

Sevilla could extend its winning streak to four games in a row if it defeats Real Sociedad at home (7:45 p.m UK Time).

Sevilla struggled heavily on the road last season and that’s why they finished outside the podium. Now they sit in the third place and their performance away from home has improved. Having lost just twice in eight games, they are more optimistic ahead of this fixture against Real Sociedad. For a short while this was the hottest team in the Spanish first division before their winning streak came to a screeching halt.

Real Sociedad Aims for another Successful Run

Back-to-back victories have restored the confidence of Real Sociedad players and you have the chance to extend the winning streak. The long injury list has shrunk and just two players are now still unfit to play. By comparison, Sevilla can’t rely on the services of five players, although three of them are doubtful.

The last three times these two teams met it was Real Sociedad who won, but the games were heavily contested on each occasion. The hosts have a difficult match against Villarreal midweek, but their opponents will face Real Madrid in the same round of Copa del Rey.

One Point Would Make Sevilla Happy

A quick glance at the results recorded by Sevilla on the road last season will highlight an interesting fact. While they found it impossible to win without the support of their fans, they were very good at seizing points. Against a team in great form like Real Sociedad, settling for one point isn’t such a bad idea.

The visitors have the resources to claim all three points, but they will start the match cautiously, with just 2 strikers. If opportunity presents itself they will go for gold, but otherwise would settle for a draw. That’s why punters should take the odds of 7/10 offered by bet365 Sports on a double chance wager on Sevilla.
