There is a big game in La Liga on Friday night, as two sides chasing Champions League qualification in Spain clash. Real Sociedad will have home advantage and will need the points to stay in the hunt. Meanwhile, Betis could move ahead of Atletico with a third straight win.
La Liga Preview
Both Sociedad and Betis are in good form coming into this fixture on Friday, as both sides will be looking to record a third straight win in the league. Both sides are clear of seventh-placed Villarreal, but their hopes of finishing in the Champions League places this season could be made or broken this week.
Betis have a narrow two-point advantage over their rivals coming into the fixture, and will be looking for a third straight win. A victory on the road this week will be enough to lift them into the top four before Atletico kick off.
Betis have been in solid form, as they are unbeaten in four, and have scored six goals in their previous two. Their most recent victory was a 2-1 success on the road against Cadiz, with their goals to secure the win being scored in the final 12 minutes through Cristian Tello and Borja Iglesias.
Sociedad are just a place below Betis in the current league standings, but already look to have sealed their spot in the Europa League, as they are sitting eight clear of Villarreal with seven games of the season remaining.
They boast an identical record to their opponents this weekend, as they have gone four without a defeat, and are also searching for a third straight win in the league this weekend. Sociedad picked up a victory against Elche in their latest league fixture. Alexander Sorloth and Robin Le Normand scored the goals in that win, as Sociedad came from 1-0 down.
Real Sociedad vs Real Betis Head to Head

Real Sociedad vs Real Betis Prediction
Betis has an excellent record in this fixture, and would be the slight preference to get the points this weekend. It should be a closer fixture, which means a 2-0 victory may be the potential final result.
