Real Sociedad to Win

The Basque team is having a great season since they are fighting for a spot in the Europa League and they’ve won a major trophy after three decades by beating Athletic Bilbao in the 2020 Copa del Rey final. However, they are in poor form at the moment with two wins in their last eight La Liga matches. They are also struggling with injuries right now. Despite all this, they are simply better than Elche and they are playing at home, so our prediction is for Real Sociedad to win this game.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Seven of the last eight Elche matches in the Spanish league have gone under 2.5 total goals and their season average is only 2.32 goals per game, so that’s a good sign for our prediction. On the other hand, Real Sociedad is slightly better with 2.53 goals per game, but they have gone under 2.5 total goals in 50% of their last eight matches and 56% of their matches this season.

Alexander Isak to Score Anytime

Since we expect Real Sociedad to win, it’s logical that we expect them to score at least one goal. So, the best option to score is their top goalscorer in La Liga this season, Alexander Isak. The Swedish striker has scored 14 goals in the Spanish league this season, but he only scored twice in the last ten games. We expect him to find his form again against the lowly Elche.

Real Sociedad vs Elche preview: Can Real Sociedad get back into shape?

The two teams enter this game with different goals, but the same urgency – Real Sociedad needs points to secure a spot in the Europa League, while Elche is trying to avoid relegation. So, let’s take a closer look at these two teams and what to expect from their duel.

Real Sociedad

Despite a recent drop in form, Real Sociedad is still in the 5th spot in the standings and they are on their way to securing a place in the Europa League next season. However, they have only won two of their last eight games in the league, along with four losses and two draws, so they will have to get some points in the remaining matches to keep their place in the standings. The biggest problem for them is the long injury list, with seven players out of contention at the moment.

Elche

With one win in the last nine La Liga matches, Elche is dangerously close to relegation. They are in the relegation zone at the moment, although they are only one point behind safety with four games left to play, so they certainly have a chance to play in the top Spanish division next season as well. The team is also relatively healthy, with just two players (Carillo and Mojica) out of the upcoming duel with Real Sociedad due to injuries.
