Sociedad team will try to beat their opponent at home to get into the final

Real Sociedad chances

Real Sociedad are unbeaten in their last ten head-to-head matches, conceding only one goal.

One such game took place earlier this month when both teams played out a 0-0 in the first Cup encounter.

With the return match taking place towards the end of February, it can be said that the two teams are already very familiar with each other.

The visitors will be hoping they can break down Pirates' defense as a faltering strike force looks to end a run of five goalless games in a row.

Moreover, Imanol Alguacil's side have lost some ground in the race for a place in the UEFA Champions League, a competition in which they lost 0-2 away to Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16 on Wednesday.

It’s almost impossible to even recognize the team lately. Thus, almost every year the Basques generally experience a decline in form in January-February.

Yes, for a long time Imanol Algusil’s team had significant personnel losses associated with injuries and the absence of players recruited to their national teams for the African and Asian Cup matches, but this is certainly not a reason for such a significant deterioration in results in the Spanish Championship.

You can argue that the bet was made on the Copa del Rey, and that’s where La Real has already gone in this tournament, and now has excellent chances of reaching the final.

And yes, this really happened. However, the season is not just about successfully completing the King's Cup grid.

In the fall, the team also played on two fronts and somehow managed to prevail in their UCL group and stay in 5th-6th place in the La Liga table.

Mallorca before the game

A 2-1 win over Rayo Vallecano last weekend gave Mallorca a timely boost in their fight for survival, but coach Javier Aguirre is keenly aware that his side are still too close to the bottom three for comfort.

Pirates go into this round of matches six points clear of the danger zone, a far cry from last season when they achieved their best La Liga finish (ninth) in more than a decade.

The team lost only one of their last 11 league matches on home soil, gaining 16 of a possible 23 points for the entire campaign.

Valente and Maffeo, who has a knee injury, will not be able to play.

Match prediction

The teams played each other twice this season, in the championship Real Sociedad won at home - 1:0, and in the first Copa match, there was a goalless draw on the field of Mallorca.

Both teams are very good at creating destruction, but they have problems converting created chances.

However, we believe that today it is high-quality defense that will be the key to success. Moreover, in the last seven head-to-head matches, more than two goals were not scored.
