Real Sociedad vs Levante predictions, H2H and match preview for this Wednesday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as La Real aim to keep their strong start going.
Real Sociedad vs Levante Preview
Real Sociedad will be hoping to continue their bright start to the season on Wednesday night when they play host to Levante at Anoeta. The Basques have responded to back-to-back defeats with successive victories and they will be firm favourites to win this against an unconvincing Levante side.
La Real’s latest success was a 1-0 win at Celta Vigo on Sunday, sealed by a late goal from Alexander Isak – by far the biggest contribution the Swede has made so far since joining the club this summer. He’ll be hoping he may be rewarded with a start here but Willian Jose has been in decent form too so it won’t be an easy call for Imanol to make. No side has picked up more away points than La Real this season in La Liga but they’ve made a strong start to life at their new-look home too with 3 wins from 4 so far at Anoeta.
Levante were considered away day specialists about twelve months ago but they’ve not been anywhere near as convincing away from home in 2019. Indeed 75% of their away games this calendar year have ended in defeat. Their only road points this term came in somewhat fortuitous circumstances at Leganes and they come into this one on a bit of a downer after a home defeat against Espanyol at the weekend.
That has not exactly plunged Levante into trouble but they are only two points above the drop-zone and can’t really afford a poor run of form during this busy period in the season. Sociedad will be expected to win this match but playing three games in a week will provide a greater test of their squad which has less depth than some of the other teams who will be eyeing up Champions League football in 2020.

Real Sociedad vs Getafe Predictions
Score Prediction: 3-1 Real Sociedad
Sociedad really have been a joy to watch so far with Martin Odegaard putting in another fine display at the weekend. Overall La Real look to have just too much all-round quality for Levante but the Valencians do always pose a threat on the break and might nick a goal.
