Levante vs Real Sociedad Predictions and Betting Tips

The Ciudad de Valencia is the stage for this highly-anticipated encounter in the LaLiga Santander as Levante lock horns with Real Sociedad this Friday. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.

A deflected Andre Barrenetxea’s strike was all that separated both sides in the reverse match early this season. This stretched Sociedad’s winning run in this fixture to two games. Would they complete the three-peat this Friday ?

Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards

Since regaining promotion back in the 2016/2017 season, Levante has been a stable side in the Spanish top-flight but a sixth straight season in the LaLiga Santander could very well elude them. The Frogs, with four games left to spare, find themselves at the bottom of the league standings whilst being six points adrift of 17th placed Mallorca. Their leaky defence has been their main problem this season with the Levante rearguard shipping 66 goals this season- the worst defensive record in the league. They head into this game off the back of a 1-1 draw with city rivals Valencia last weekend. This doesn’t help much in the grand scheme of things and with Real Madrid set to come next after Sociedad this Friday, you get the feeling that it is now or never for Levante.

Real Sociedad are also invoked in the hunt for the top four, heading into this game in the sixth position whilst being five points adrift of Atletico Madrid who occupies 4th place. Their performances haven’t been one that suggests that they can put up a fight for a spot in the UEFA Champions League next season with a total of two-point amassed from their last three league games. Rayo Vallecano was the most recent aide to stop them in their tracks in a 1-1 stalemate last weekend. Would they manage to get back to winning ways against relegation-threatened Levante ?
