Simply looking to carry on from they left off back in March, Real Sociedad will welcome Osasuna to an empty Reale Arena on Sunday night.

Starting with the hosts, last seen back in March when picking up a deserved 2-1 win away at Eibar, Real Sociedad have continued on what has been an outstanding campaign at the Reale Arena. Marking their return this weekend still sat in the Champions League spots, Imanol Alguacil’s men had previously won seven of their last eight appearances, with that sole defeat coming in a 1-0 loss away at the Nou Camp. Continuing to shock many across La Liga prior to the enforced break, there is no doubt that Alguacil would have been thrilled by his side’s displays on home soil. Along with booking a Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao, Sociedad have won each of their last seven matchups at the Reale Arena, including a 3-0 romp against Valencia.

As for the visitors, despite picking up what was a much-needed 1-0 win against rock-bottom Espanyol prior to the enforced break, Osasuna had a growing reputation for their glaring issues on the road. Once again shipping a trio of goals in their last away matchup at Sevilla, Los Rojillos had lost three of their last four appearances away from the Estadio El Sadar. In what should be an overwhelming return to action this weekend, Jagoba Arrasate’s side also hold what is a worrying record against Sunday’s hosts. Hit with a 3-1 defeat when they made the trip to the Reale Arena on Copa del Rey duties earlier in the year, Osasuna have suffered back-to-back defeats against Alguacil’s men and have landed just a single win against them since 2017.
