Real Sociedad and Deportivo La Coruna will open the 22nd round in Spanish La Liga. The game is scheduled for Friday evening, with the kick off being set at 20:00, UK Time.
Real Sociedad have the first chance at the bookmakers, despite their recent form. To be more precise, the Basques have lost the previous four league matches, being on the 15th position at the moment. Sociedad have 23 points, only six more than first relegation place, while their goal difference is not impressive, 36-40. The attack remains their strongest point, but the defense is still struggling.
La Coruna fight to remain in the Spanish top flight this season once again. The visitors are currently on the 18th position, the first one below red line. Deportivo have the second worst defense in La Liga, conceding 46 goals so far, more than two per game. Their attack failed to impress, with 24 goals scored in 21 games. The reverse fixture produced no fewer than six goals, with La Coruna losing 2-4 at home back in September.
