Real Sociedad's woes deepen with LaLiga defeat to Sevilla ahead of crucial PSG clash

Posted : 02 March 2024

Real Sociedad suffered their fourth defeat in five matches with a 3-2 loss to Sevilla on Saturday, intensifying concerns ahead of their crucial Champions League second leg against Paris Saint-Germain.


The reshuffled squad faced a setback in LaLiga as Moroccan striker Youssef En-Nesyri netted a quick-fire brace early in the game, followed by Sergio Ramos securing the third goal in the 65th minute.


Although an Andre Silva penalty provided hope for Real Sociedad just before halftime, Brais Mendez's late consolation goal in added time fell short. The Basque team now sits seventh in the league with 40 points, while Sevilla is 14th with 27.


The defeat places Real Sociedad in a precarious position, just three days before their pivotal Champions League home game against PSG, where they aim to overturn a 2-0 first-leg deficit. In the initial encounter, Kylian Mbappe scored the opener, positioning PSG favorably for the quarterfinals.


Meanwhile, LaLiga leaders Real Madrid returned to Valencia, where forward Vinicius Jr faced racial abuse last season. Girona, seeking redemption after their Copa del Rey quarterfinals defeat to Mallorca in January, traveled to face their opponents on Sunday.


Barcelona, currently in third place, faced Athletic Bilbao in LaLiga, with coach Xavi emphasizing the critical juncture for his team, riding a wave of four league wins in five matches. Additionally, Barcelona is set for a Champions League return game at home against Napoli.
