Real Sociedad will be looking to get back on track in La Liga this weekend after going two without a win. They will be on the road when they come up against Almeria, who are still searching for their first league win of the 2023-24 season.
La Liga Preview
The pressure will be on Real Sociedad this weekend, as they look to get back on track after two recent disappointing displays. They come into this fixture sitting seventh in the La Liga standings, but a return to winning ways could leave them sitting fifth in the table during the upcoming international break.
However, they will need to put some recent poor displays behind them, as they have won just once over their previous four league matches. Sociedad would have considered themselves as very unfortunate to fall to a defeat in their most recent fixture, as they were edged out by Barcelona at home. The reigning champions netted the winner in the second minute of injury time, but Sociedad had more than enough chances throughout the match to take the lead.
The writing already appears to be on the wall for Almeria at this stage of the season, as they sit bottom of the La Liga standings after failing to win in their opening 12 league matches this term. That start to the season already leaves them six points from safety, and their recent form would be a huge concern.
The Spanish side comes into this match after falling to four straight defeats in the competition, while they have allowed a league-high of 32 goals already this term. Their most recent loss was suffered on the road on Sunday, as they were edged out by Alaves.
Almeria vs Real Sociedad Head to Head
Sociedad have won each of their last two league matches against Almeria, which includes a 2-0 success in this exact fixture last term. They have also gone three without a defeat against their rivals. Almeria’s last win against Sociedad was recorded away from home in September 2014, as they registered a 2-1 success.
Almeria vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Sociedad will need to put in a much better performance than we have seen from them in recent weeks this weekend. But, we still expect them to have too much for their rivals, meaning that we like their chances of landing a 2-0 win on the road.
