Real Sociedad vs Almeria Prediction: La Liga Match | 23.05.2023 – 22bet
The race to secure Champions League qualification continues in La Liga on Tuesday evening, as Real Sociedad looks for a second straight victory. Almeria were also winners in their previous match, and they will be looking for a victory that could maintain their top-flight status.
La Liga Preview
It has been a compelling battle for a Champions League spot in La Liga this season, and the battle continues in this upcoming midweek round of matches. Real Sociedad could secure their spot in the competition next season, but they will need to claim victory and hope Villarreal falls to a defeat on Wednesday evening.
Sociedad should be in good confidence coming into this match, as they have won three of their last four matches in the league. Meanwhile, they have dropped points in just two matches over their previous five outings. They produced one of their best performances of the season in their previous match, as they landed a 2-1 win on the road against Barcelona. Alexander Sorloth netted the crucial second goal with just 18 minutes remaining.
Almeria is still fighting at the opposite end of the standings, and they require one more win to ensure their top-flight status in Spain. They come into this match in reliable form over their last five, as they have picked up three wins. However, they have also dropped to two defeats over the same period.
Almeria produced one of their best performances of the season in their most recent match, as they secured a 3-0 home win over Mallorca. The star in that fixture was Lazaro, who scored a sensational hat-trick inside the opening 58 minutes. This will be a tougher challenge, but their confidence is high.
Real Sociedad vs Almeria Head to Head
Real Sociedad picked up a 2-0 win in the first meeting between these sides this season. However, the previous clash between the sides in Sociedad came in September 2014, with Almeria registering a deserved 2-1 win on the road. Sociedad has also won just once in the four previous clashes between the sides in La Liga.
Real Sociedad vs Almeria Prediction
This will likely be a very tight match between these sides, with neither looking to give away too many chances. However, the preference remains for the Champions League-chasing hosts.
