Real Sociedad supporters feel on top of the world right now, so will their team’s winning form continue?
On New Year’s Eve, goals from Brais Méndez and Alexander Sørloth saw la Real beat local rivals Osasuna 2-0 at Anoeta.
This game also saw Mikel Oyarzabal make a three-minute cameo, his first appearance since 13 March due to a ruptured Cruciate Ligament injury.
Then, on Wednesday night, Robert Navarro was the only scorer as los Txuri-Urdin overcame Logroñés in the Copa del Rey.
So, overall, Imanol Alguacil’s team are third in La Liga and are through to the Europa League last 16, as well as the Copa’s last 16.
Ahead of the Basque derby against Athletic Club next Saturday night, will la Real win again?
Almería meantime are 13th, five points clear of danger which, given they’re a newly-promoted club, is an impressive spot to be in.
Rubi’s team drew 1-1 with Cádiz eight days ago, taking the lead through Gonzalo Melero before conceding late.
Having fallen in round one, Almería have not been in Copa del Rey action this week, so will certainly be ready for this tough task.
Will Real Sociedad’s quality see them to victory at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos?
