Real Sociedad vs Real Betis Match Preview
Real Betis were held to a goalless draw in the first leg of this Copa del Rey tie by a Real Sociedad side much stronger on their travels, and all is far from lost for the Seville club.
The Verdiblancos can make the journey north still with real hope of reaching the quarter-finals because, at least before Monday’s match against Espanyol (result not known at the time of writing) Sociedad had accumulated the fewest points and goals at home in the Spanish top flight this season.
There has been a huge difference in Sociedad’s results on their own pitch and on the road this term, even enough to suggest their best chance of progressing from this tie may already have gone.
But, of course, it may not be that simple and this is unlikely to be a cakewalk for Betis. It is unrealistic to expect them to emerge as comfortable winners because, as the stats above outline, Sociedad have been keeping things pretty tight in their recent matches.
Ultimately, we think this could be a similarly cagey contest to last week’s, but in terms of nailing our colours to the mast of who will advance to the last eight, our money is on Betis.
