Real Sociedad and Levante meet in a match of La Liga number 28. The confrontation will be held on Friday, at 20:00, on Estadio Anoeta.
In the turn of the season, Sociedad set a 3-1 draw in Valencia. That was only the 3rd success achieved by the Basque Country band in the 12 Levante trips. On their own field, Real has suffered a single failure in the 11 straight games, winning 4 wins.
Formation prepared by Imanol Alguacil is present in this duel after two consecutive failures in La Liga, 0-2 in his own home in front of the Atletico Madrid and 2-5 in the move from Sevilla. These defeats interrupted a series of 10 games in a row without defeat in all competitions, during which they won four wins.
Willian Jose, Asier Illarramendi, Diego Llorente (injured) and Igor Zubeldia (suspended) will not be on the pitch in this confrontation, while Martin Merquelanz and Andoni Gorosabel are uncertain.
If the hosts have two defeats in a row, Levante must regroup after being defeated in four of the last five stages. The most recent failure was the one on his own, in front of Villareal, with the score of 0-2. That was the 7th match of the last 10 in which Paco Lopez’s band failed to score.
The guest technician will not be able to rely on Cheick Doukoure, injured, while Ruben Vezo and Sergio Postigo are uncertain.
Real Sociedad: Rulli – Zaldua, Navas, Moreno, Hernandez – Merino, Pardo, Zurutuza – Januzaj, Ramirez, Oyarzabal;
Levante: Fernandez – Pier, Cabaco, Coke – Simon, Bardhi, Campana, Luna – Rochina – Morales, Mayoral;
Even with a few absences, the band in the Basque Country has a favorite band in front of a band that is struggling to find its way to the goal. We rely on the success of the hosts, the stake returned in case of equality, but also the fact that the guests will not be able to score.
