This Wednesday sees Seville go head to head with Real at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan – Kick-off 7:00pm GMT.

When Real visit the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan they will be sat in sixth place in the League. Seville, currently 17 will face an up-hill battle to handle the visitors.

Seville arrive at this game, having secured 11 points so far this season

Seville’s pride is now at stake, as they will not wish for another successive poor result. They recently drew 1-1 away to Real Betis, which followed the loss to Rayo Vallecano. They will be eager to improve in this next fixture.

Also, a draw statistic of four in eight meetings is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Jorge Sampaoli’s men wishes for ultimately. They currently stand seventeenth in the League, with 11 points for a total of 2 wins, 6 losses and 5 draws having won two fixtures, drawn five matches, and lost six games.

Playing at home, Seville have drawn three matches and lost three fixtures.

Victory for Seville would take their points tally to 14 so far this season.

Injury and illness have depleted Jorge Sampaoli’s Seville and they will likely be missing seven key personnel for Wednesday’s match.

Real Sociedad have 23 points to their name, going into this tie

Real’s recent run of poor form will be worrying for manager Imanol Alguacil, with a 1-1 draw to Valencia in their last fixture, which followed a defeat to Real Betis. The White and Blues will be fired up for this next match, but mustn’t throw caution to the wind.

Also, Real keep finding ways to win, having secured five victories in their last eight fixtures is astonishing this season. With a sixth position in the league and 7 wins, 4 losses and 2 draws, they currently have 23 points in the League having won seven matches, drawn two fixtures, and lost four matches.

Real’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Seville. In the 6 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won four meetings and lost two games.

Real Sociedad will have secured 26 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Real’s squad will likely be depleted of eight of their key players when they start on Wednesday, due to injury or illness.
