It's a big one at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán on Match Day 27 in La Liga as sixth placed Sevilla play host to ninth placed Real Sociedad. With only two points between the sides heading into the game, the result of this could have a significant bearing on the race for the European positions.


There hasn't been much to choose between these sides in recent encounters. The reverse of this fixture ending in a goalless draw and Sevilla nicking a 1-0 win in the game here last season.


Nolito and Sergio Escudero are out injured for the home side whilst Simon Kjaer is suspended. Top scorer Willian José, Asier Illarramendi and Martín Merquelanz are all out injured for Real Sociedad.


Sevilla were excellent in the first half of the season and looking like lively challengers for the Champion's League positions. Things have rather fallen to pieces since though with just the one win in their past eight in the league. They have been largely excellent at home though with just two defeats in their opening twelve games here.


Sociedad's season has been almost the polar opposite of that of Sevilla. Starting slowly they have come on strong of late with just one defeat in their past nine. They have been solid on the road of late, keeping four clean sheets in their last four, but only winning one of those games.


Sevilla do tend to get amongst the goals here, notching two or more in eight of their last ten. That kind of strike rate will always give them a chance and we see an entertaining draw here.


Prediction: Sevilla 2 - 2 Real Sociedad
