Real Sociedad vs Bilbao Match Analysis & Prediction
14/01/2023 11:00 pm
Real Sociedad will look to extend their winning run to five games across all competitions when they welcome Atletico Bilbao to Reale Arena for their La Liga Matchday 17 tie on Saturday night.
Real Sociedad kicked off 2023 in style, with the team eliminating Logrones in the Copa del Rey, while beating Almeria in their last league match. They have now won all their last five games across all competitions, while they are coming off a three-match winning streak in La Liga.
Imanol Alguaci’s side now sit third in La Liga standings, six points behind second-placed Real Madrid and four five above fifth-placed Atletico Madrid. They will therefore want to keep their winning streak as they seek to continue holding a Champions League place.
Meanwhile, Bilbao failed to turn their dominance into victory in a goalless draw with Osasuna, with the team dropping to seventh place in the standings.
They will be looking to quickly return to winning ways as they hope to stay close to the top four. They are now two points behind fourth-placed Betis.
The two sides are closely-matched at the moment, although, Real Sociedad have the better form and will want to prove a point in the local derby.
