Imanol Alguacil’s side sit in sixth place in the domestic championship with 54 points from 31 games. There have been 32 goals scored and 30 conceded. The home side were already top of the table in the autumn, but then slowed down. In the last four rounds, the team have won three games, drawing once with Sevilla. San Sebastian crashed out of the Europa League, losing on aggregate in 1/16 against Leipzig and now focus their energies on the Primera Division. The Bianconeri were defeated 1-2 away to Elche in the last leg thanks to goals from Isak and Le Norman.
The team’s top scorer is Spanish winger Mikel Oyarzabal (9 goals), but he picked up an injury a few weeks ago. Aside from him, the club have defender Nacho Monreal and midfielder Ander Barrenechea currently out injured.
The Cucumbers have been in the bottom three for a long time, but they dropped back down as spring arrived. The team suffered three defeats in late February and early March but then picked up momentum. In the last four meetings, there have been three wins and a draw. Now the Seville side sit fifth in the league table, with 56 points from 31 games played. Chilean specialist Manuel Pellegrini’s side have scored 56 goals and conceded 37.
Last weekend, the visitors thrashed Qadis 1-2 away (2.0), before losing 4-1 to Osasuna. Leaders Fekir and Iglesias returned to action after sustaining injuries. Midfielder Victor Camarasa, defender Martín Montoya and goalkeeper Rui Silva are also out injured.
The teams have already met each other in the first round of the national championship, and then Betis thrashed their opponents 4-0. After that, the teams met in the round of ¼ finals of the Spanish Cup, and again the Sevillians crushed Real Madrid with the same score.
Real Sociedad vs Betis
The hosts will surely be determined to take revenge for the two hurtful slaps in the previous head-to-head encounters. They are just three points off the top spot, the more so because they are in direct competition. “Betis”, however, is in good form – the “cucumbers” were eliminated from the Europa League and are now focused on the Primera. Our prediction is for a two-goal win.
