On Saturday, Real Sociedad will be looking to bounce back from their heavy home defeat to Barcelona when they continue their La Liga at Estadio Martínez Valero where they’ll face Elche. The visitors have picked up three points from their first two league games of the season, while Elche have collected one point from their opening two La Liga matches. Elche have actually lost each of their last four La Liga games against Real Sociedad, including a 2-1 defeat in the corresponding game last term, with their last top-flight victory over the Basque side coming in 2015.
Elche finished 13th in La Liga last season, picking up 42 points from 38 matches, with the club operating in their third straight campaign in Spain’s top flight for the first time since the late 1970s. Los Franjiverdes were only four points above the relegation zone, though, and it would not be a surprise to see them involved towards the bottom of the division this season. Francisco’s side opened their 2022-23 La Liga campaign with a 3-0 defeat at Real Betis, but they did manage to pick up a point at home to Almeria last time out, with the two teams playing out a 1-1 draw.
Meanwhile, Real Sociedad made the perfect start to their 2022-23 season, recording a 1-0 victory over Cadiz, with new signing Takefusa Kubo scoring the only goal of the contest. Imanol Alguacil’s side would have been looking to back up the success when they welcomed Barcelona last weekend, but it proved to be a difficult evening for the Basque outfit. The White and Blues will be looking to challenge for a top-six finish again, though it has been a relatively quiet transfer window for the club, with Brais Mendez, Momo Cho and Kubo the only additions, but there are expected to be more.
