At the time when nobody was betting on Real Sociedad, when it seemed more complicated that he had it because he visited the field of one of the teams in the most First form since the confinement, The txuri-urdin team showed that they are very alive and hit the table at the Ceramic stadium, beating Villarreal that blows up any planning of the fight for European positions. Now Real Sociedad depends on itself to travel the old continent next season, and even has time to finish in fifth position, ahead of the yellow submarine. What football has. How capricious it is. the fault lies with the goals of Llorente and Willian José, who scored in strategy and gives the realists an extra ball.
Real Sociedad has, in addition, a calendar that is, in theory, comfortable. Not because of the rivals he faces (they are Seville and Atlético de Madrid), but because both teams already have their Champions League qualification goal achieved. That should play in favor of a realistic team that plays it, and that almost certainly, winning the remaining two games will enter Europe even through the front door, qualifying directly for the group stage of the Europa League, not having to play the initial three previews.
The accounts they make from the Royal are clear. Viillarreal and Getafe are going to leave some point along the way, and the people of San Sebastian have all six. The yellow submarine has to visit Valdebebas on Thursday on a big day for Real MadridBecause winning or drawing is already a league champion mathematically. And Getafe must play against Atlético, with the Madrid rivalry that is always at stake in those games. From there, if she wins Sevilla, she will also depend on herself for the fifth or sixth place in the league on the last day.
The problem is that the Real squad arrives excessively depleted in these last two league games in a row. And they do not worry what they are not, but those who are, because they are limping, with the red reserve pilot already on. Monreal, Merino, Oyarzabal, Odegaard and Alex Isak played at the start in Villarreal. Imanol was smart and did not let most of them complete the game on Monday. There are only seven days of work left, and finally vacation. Two sessions ahead to prepare the match against Sevilla.
