This Friday, May 7 will be played the match between Real Sociedad and Elche on behalf of the 35th day of La Liga. The game will be an opportunity to pit a contender for a European place against a side that will have to play maintenance.
The Basques are currently in fifth place in the championship and are currently qualified in the Europa League. The problem for Sociedad is that their two pursuers in the standings (Villarreal and Real Betis) are only 1 and 2 points away respectively and will also give their all to get the best place. In the last three La Liga games, the San Sebastian club have obtained two victories before plunging to Huesca (1-0), a club playing maintenance, just like the future opponent Elche.
Elche is so far in 19th place with 30 points and if 4 teams stand in 1 point, the club from the province of Alicante has a very bad goal average. The team can still hope to hold on to their good performance, unfortunately punished by the realism of the league lead last weekend (0-1 loss to Atletico).
Real Sociedad: Alex Remiro – Gorosabel, Elustondo, Le Normand, Monreal – Guevara, Zubimendi, Oyarzabal – Januzaj, Isak, Portu
Elche: Gazzaniga – Palacios, Calvo, Gonzalez, Josema – Morente, Guti, Marcone, Fidel – Milla, Boyé
The meeting will be broadcast this Friday evening at 9 p.m. on the following channel: beIN sport 1
