A shaky Real Sociedad will be desperate to steady themselves as they host an in-form Real Betis at the Anoeta Stadium on Saturday.

Real Sociedad's early season form seems to have fizzled out and after topping the table for a few weeks, Imanol Aguacil's side is languishing at sixth on the La Liga table currently with 30 points from 19 games.

They have just two wins in their last 14 outings across all competitions and could slip further down the table if they do not eke out all three points against Real Betis.

La Real have won just one of their last nine league games and will need to snap out of this slump as quickly as they can if they want to keep their Champions League hopes alive.

On the other hand, Manuel Pellegrini's Real Betis have been in really good form of late and are undefeated in their last five matches. They have moved to eighth on the La Liga table and are just four points behind their Saturday opponents La Real.

If Real Betis can keep their good run of form going, they could soon find themselves fighting for a spot in Europe. A win away from home against Real Sociedad can greatly boost their spirits.
