Real Sociedad's home statistics are seventh in the division and, should they win, will be third. In 15 games Real Sociedad has 9 victories, four draws and two losses, with a goal difference of 12:6. Surprisingly, with such a number of points earned at home, all clubs except Alaves scored more than the Basques.
The Betis players are focused on the Spanish Cup final, but do not want to lose fifth place in the La Liga standings. They do not mind regaining their position in the Champions League zone, and for this, albeit temporarily, the victory in San Sebastian is enough. Not so long ago Betis dropped out of the UEL playoffs and that result helped the Sevillians in La Liga. In the last three rounds, they played a 0:0 draw with Celta and beat Osasuna and Cadiz. Due to such results, Betis occupies fifth line in the La Liga standings, and claims a place in the Champions League zone. On the road the southerners have the third statistic in the division, eight wins in 15 games with three draws and four losses on a goal difference of 25:18.Watch Free Live Stream
