Real Sociedad vs Levante: Both sides looking to end winless runs

Real Sociedad and Levante meet on Friday evening at Anoeta with both side’s looking to get back to winning ways.

The home side have struggled in their last three matches since beating Leganes at home and they will be looking to bounce back after their most recent defeat which came against Sevilla and ended 5-2 to the Andalusian side.

A win, however, despite their recent poor form – could put them back in contention for a European place, sitting just five points off sixth place Sevilla.

Levante arrive in San Sebastien looking to end a run of three defeats and they must do that sooner than later, having dropped to within five points of the dreaded bottom three.

Team News

For the home side, Igor Zubeldia is sidelined due to suspension, which should see Ruben Pardo come into the midfield three.

Willian Jose is expected to be injured until the end of the month, which should see Sandro Ramirez continue up top. Diego Llorente is out until April due to injury.

For the visitors, Ruben Vezo has a knock and is a doubt with Coke potentially slotting in at centre-back. Moses Simon is expected to get further opportunities on the right flank ahead of Jason, whilst Borja Mayoral should get the nod over Roger Marti up front.
