Real Sociedad – Elche Preview:  Team News, Probable Lineups, and Latest Form

Read all about the teams ahead of their duel, including latest news, form, and our predicted Real Sociedad vs Elche lineups:

Real Sociedad

With just one win in the last six games in La Liga, Real Sociedad is on a bad run at the moment and that caused them to be overtaken by Atletico Madrid in third place. The team from San Sebastian is still on course to make it to Champions League next season as they are currently fourth, but Real Betis is just three points behind right now.

When it comes to team news, Sociedad will again be without Aritz Elustondo, Sadiq Umar, and Martin Merquelanz .

Real Sociedad Predicted Lineup:

Remiro – Gorosabel, Le Normand, Pacheco, Rico – Mendez, Zubimendi, D. Silva, Illarramendi – Oyarzabal, Sorloth

Elche

While Elche did win two of their last six games, those are their only two wins this season. So, while it is true that this has been the best stretch of the season for them, it says all you need to know about Elche's season. The team remains in the last place, fourteen points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone, so it's pretty safe to assume that we will see them in Segunda next season.

Meanwhile, Elche will be without injured Lisandro Magallan, Alex Collado, Enzo Roco, and John Donald, while Pere Milla and Pape Diop Cheikh are suspended right now.

Elche Predicted Lineup:

Badia – Carmona, Palacios, Fernandez, Blanco, Clerc – Gumbau, Mascarell, Fidel – Boye, Nteka

Player to Watch: Brais Mendez

There are many players in the home team that could make a difference against Elche, but our player to watch in this duel is their midfielder Brais Mendez.

The Spaniard has been one of the best performers for Real Sociedad this season, with seven goals and three assists in twenty four La Liga appearances so far, so Elche better be wary of his talents.
