Sevilla Keeps Chasing Europa League Bid When Real Sociedad Comes to TownPublished April 3, 2016 by Florin P
Fading Real Sociedad braces for a siege in Sevilla (7:30 p.m UK Time).
Sevilla’s performance this season remains a mystery for Spanish football fans, as the team failed to win any of the games played on the road. At the same time, it has the second best home record and is on the verge of tying Barcelona for the lead. All they need is to defeat Real Sociedad at home, a victory that would also keep their Europa League dreams alive.
No Injuries for the Home Side
Sevilla is one of the teams still playing in the Europa League that take the competition very seriously and plan on winning it for a record fifth time. This is their top priority for the season but the team also prepares for the next season and tries to secure another berth in the European competition. That’s why they need to consolidate their position, with Athletic Bilbao breathing down their necks.
The busy schedule took its toll on the home side and many players accused fatigue, especially in the last match played against Real Madrid. They missed out some great scoring opportunities and the official result doesn’t accurately reflect the difference between the two teams. Now many of the key players have returned to fitness and they will throw everything they’ve got at Real Sociedad.
The Visitors Are Drifting Aimlessly
Real Sociedad used to chase the same objectives as Sevilla but the team lost its direction and conceded many games recently. The explanation for the recent struggles can be found in the injury list, which includes virtually all their effective strikers. With many of these footballers sidelined, they can only do that much and their chances of winning on the road are slim.
Bet365 Sports offers the best odds on Sevilla to win and even though they don’t look like much at 3/5, it is still worth backing the hosts.
