Match Preview

Real Sociedad will hope to address their defensive frailties when they take on Levante in La Liga (LL).
Any plans that the Basque side had for qualifying for Europe, will now be a distant memory as they are in league-limbo – eight points from the bottom-three and nine points from the top-seven.
Levante are currently only two points from the relegation zone and come into this fixture on the back of an eleven-match winless run (D5, L6). However, a spirited draw against Real Madrid only served to tease their fans as to their top-flight credentials.
At the heart of Sociedad’s issues are their defensive problems, they have conceded 16 goals in their last six games, with 45 goals conceded overall. With just one win in their last seven league games, Sociedad’s form has seen them drop from ninth to 14th position.
Thankfully for Sociedad, Levante have only scored 21 goals – which is the fourth worst record in the league! But with Sociedad struggling to find momentum and leak goals from individual and team errors, fans are now worried about Eusebio’s future at the club.
Key battles: Real Sociedad’s Asier Illarramendi has three goals and an assist in his last three league games.
Levante’s Jose Luis Morales has seven goals and has been involved in 33% of his team’s overall goals.
Stat attack: Nine of Levante’s goals have come in the final 15 minutes – the most of all sides in the league this season.
Levante are winless in 11 LL games and could equal their winless streak of September, 2006.
Sociedad have lost just one of their last eight LL encounters against Levante (W2, D5, L1) – a defeat which came in the reverse fixture.
