Levante vs Real Sociedad Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Levante’s surprise run at the start of the 2017-18 La Liga campaign continues with the team getting a 1-1 draw with Valencia. Rodrigo provided Valencia with an early advantage in the first half, but the away team were unable to keep this lead for much longer. Levante came back into the game through Enis Bardhi’s 41st minute goal. Real Sociedad suffered a first league defeat of the season after losing 3-1 against Real Madrid. The reigning European champions took the lead through Borja Mayoral, but Kevin Rodrigues equalised in the 28th minute. Rodrigues then turned villain with a 36th minute own goal to put Madrid in front, while a second-half goal from Gareth Bale provided a conclusion to Real Sociedad winning run. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Levante are winless in the recent six matches against Real Sociedad, but an astonishing four of these matches have finished as a draw. Real Sociedad have managed away wins over Celta de Vigo and Deportivo La Coruna, but Levante are expected to provide a stern test. Unbeaten in the season, Levante have been involved in three consecutive draws. I have seen the team be much more resilient than expected, and I would go with a draw in this game. The first four games of the season have seen Levante and Real Sociedad score at least once in each match. Levante have failed to score only twice in six home matches against Real Sociedad. The good start made by the Levante is a reason to go with both teams to score.

Levante Preview

The start of the season made by Levante has been one of the surprise elements of the La Liga campaign so far. After having struggled in their last top flight campaign during the 2015-16 season, it is a surprise to see Levante unbeaten after the first four games of the season. This unbeaten record has not been down to the club facing poor opposition, as they have already been up against Real Madrid, Villarreal, and Valencia in the first four matches. Levante’s Enis Bardhi and Ivi Lopez are the top scorers at the club this season with two league goals each.

Levante Team News

Jose Morales is the only player from Levante who is suspended for the game. Roger Salvador (cruciate ligament), Jefferson Lerma (hamstring), Ivan Lopez (hamstring), and Oier Olazabal (knee) are the players unavailable for Levante.

Real Sociedad Preview

The brilliant start to the season by Eusebio’s team came to a conclusion, as the loss against Real Madrid ended their four game-winning run in all competitions. Manager Eusebio will undoubtedly point to the Europa League exertions that took a toll on the team coming into the match against the La Liga and European Champions. Still, Eusebio would not have dreamt about being third in the table after the first four games of the season. Real Sociedad have already managed nine points so far, while Juanmi is the top scorer with three league goals.

Real Sociedad Team News

Raul Rodriguez (back), Inigo Martinez (knee), Carlos Martinez (cruciate ligament), and Mikel Oyarzabal (shin) are the players set to be unavailable for Eusebio.
