Levante vs Real Sociedad Preview
Levante and Real Sociedad meet in the first of the two Monday games in LaLiga this week. The hosts are now mathematically safe and don’t really have anything left to play. La Real will be hoping to take advantage by claiming all three points to boost their European hopes.
Paco Lopez’s Levante can now afford to fully start planning for the 2020/21 campaign in LaLiga. That wasn’t guaranteed at the restart, particularly given they had the extra disadvantage of having to play home matches away from their usual ground, over 100 km from Valencia in the town of La Nucia. It’s just 1 defeat in 6 games since the resumption for Levante though with their only defeat coming against Atletico Madrid.
Real Sociedad really struggled to get going again. They’d lost four on the spin heading into their most recent match but finally got back to winning ways by seeing off bottom club Espanyol 2-1 at Anoeta. Realistically they are now battling for Europa League rather than Champions League football and they will assume a 5 point advantage on Basque rivals Athletic Club in 8th if they can seal maximum points here.
It’ll be interesting to see whether Levante manage to play with the same intensity now that survival has been 100% guaranteed. They are hampered by the suspension of Enis Bardhi but they do have quite a few good midfield options so it shouldn’t be a major issue. There is good news for Real Sociedad meanwhile with talisman Martin Odegaard having made a quicker than expected recovery from a knee problem and he should be fit to start here.
Levante vs Real Sociedad Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Real Sociedad
Real Sociedad stopped the rot last time out and that 2nd Half turnaround may just prove a vital building block as they approach these final five games. With Odegaard fit again, they may just enjoy this game against a Levante side that can be too open at times and La Real might just have enough to seal their 7th away win of the season.
