Real Betis are flirting with the relegation at the moment. This is perhaps the last scenario a club of this size wants to be in at any point in the season. But Betis are struggling having won just twice in the first 8 league games heading into this match. If the result in this game goes south for Betis, it's a possibility that they could find themselves rooted in the bottom three after the conclusion of this round.
Meanwhile, Real Sociedad are enjoying life on the opposite side of the table having collected 13 points from the first 8 matches.
The La Liga match will be played between Real Sociedad and Real Betis at Anoeta Stadium, in San Sebastián, Basque Country, Spain. The ground has a capacity of 39,500.
The game will start at 05:30 PM (IST), on Sunday, October 20.
