Sevilla will look to end a two-game losing run when they host Real Sociedad in la Liga at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium on Sunday midnight (IST).
The Los Nervionenses opened the 2019-20 La Liga season with three wins in the first four-game, but have lost the last two against Real Madrid and Eibar.
But the manner in which Sevilla lost the last two games must be giving manager Julen Lopetegui’s some headache. The odd goal separated Real Madrid from them, despite bossing the possession, while Sevilla had a 0-2 lead at Eibar, but still ended up with a 3-2 defeat.
Real Sociedad, meanwhile, have accumulated more than one-fourth of the points them managed in the entire last season in the first six league games only. This is a sign of the great start this team has made to the new season.
The visitors head into this game on a three-game winning run.
The La Liga match will be played between Sevilla and Real Sociedad at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, in Seville, Spain. The ground has a capacity of 43,883.
The game will start at 12:30 AM (IST), on Monday, September 30.

Sevilla Team News:
Portuguese center-back Daniel Carrico picked up an injury during the clash against Eibar in midweek and had to be taken off at the hour mark.
Sevilla had a 0-2 lead when Carrico left the pitch. But his important to the team was clear that Julen Lopetegui’s team lost all its shape and composure at the back, eventually losing the game 3-2.
But who could replace Carrico?
Jules Koundé replaced Carrico in the last game and it was his foul which handed Eibar a lifeline in the form of a penalty. But if Carrico is not available, Lopetegui will name both Diego Carlos and Koundé as his center-backs in this game.
Sevilla Probable XI:
Tomas Vaclik (GK), Sergio Reguilon, Daniel Carrico, Diego Carlos, Jesus Navas, Lucas Ocampos, Ever Banega, Fernando, Joan Jordan, Luuk de Jong, Javier Hernandez (Chicharito)

SEV vs RS Dream11 potential winner:
There’s not much to separate both these teams. But the fact that Sociedad are sitting above Sevilla on the table, and are an aay side in this game, the visitors may look to soak up the pressure and look for a draw here.
We back both the teams to share points here.
