De Sousa, Marcos
Real Sociedad and Mirandés face at Estadio Municipal de Anoeta, in a match for the Copa del Rey (Semifinals). There is no record of official confrontations between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last head ‑ to ‑ head was played on 10‑11‑2004 and ended with the final score: Mirandés (0‑0) Real Sociedad. The home advantage may play an important role in this match, since Mirandés presents significant differences between home and away results.
Until reaching this stage of the Copa del Rey (Semifinals), the home team had to eliminate: Real Madrid, Osasuna, Espanyol, Ceuta and Becerril. This is a team that maintains its performance when playing outside its stadium, since in the last 30 games it registers 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses as a visitor; against 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses at their stadium. The team arrives at this match after a home win against Athletic Bilbao by (2‑1). Real Sociedad won 6, drew 2 and lost 2 of their last 10 home matches for all competitions.
In this competition, he won the last 5 games he played. His offense has scored regularly, as he has scored at least one goal in each of the last 5 games in this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 32 of the last 49 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals. This is a team that scores many times first: it opened the scoreboard in 13 of its last 15 games, of those 13 it reached the break in advantage in 6 and managed to maintain the advantage until the end of the 90 'in 9.
Real Sociedad comes motivated for this match after a home win by 2-1 against Atlhletic Bilbao: Portu and Isak scored the winning goals. It is possible that we observe the home team preferring the right side to attack, taking advantage of the depth offered by the right side defender Joseba Zaldúa. Despite being a team that likes to play in their midfield, they can also easily go out on the counterattack. It is worth noting that in the defensive moment, Real Sociedad shows signs of being a very aggressive team, giving little space to its opponent. The coach will not be able to count on Diego Llorente, Asier Illarramendi and David Zurutuza for being delivered to the medical department. It is worth noting that Andoni Gorosabel will also be out for being suspended.
The visiting team arrives at this stage of the Copa del Rey
(Semifinals) after having played in previous qualifiers with:
Villarreal, Sevilla, Celta de Vigo, UCAM Murcia and Coruxo. This is a
team affected by the home factor, which is stronger when they play with
the support of their fans, since in the last 30 games they have recorded
3 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses as a visitor, with a total of 26 goals
scored and 33 conceded. At home, he won 7 wins and 8 draws, with a total
of 22 goals scored and 11 conceded. In their last match, for the Liga
Adelante, they drew with Sporting Gijón by (2‑2). In the last 10 away
matches Mirandés won 5, drew 3 and lost 2. Defensive solidity has not
been his strong point, since he has suffered at least one goal in each
of the last 5 games, but his attack has scored with regularity, as they
have scored at least one goal in each of the last 5 games for this
competition. In 15 games, he managed to turn the scoreboard in 3 of the 6
games in which he suffered the first goal.
Mirandés heads into this match after a 2-2 away draw against Sporting Gijón. The visiting team's greatest quality lies in its ability to conduct its offensive attacks through quick transitions. It is worth noting that from a defensive point of view, difficulties increase when the opposing team attacks through the sides. The Brazilian Marcos André is responsible for taking danger, because his greatest virtue is the submission. One of the great qualities of Mirandés is the aerial duels, being that, most of the times it manages to leave in advantage. The coach should have all players available for this King's Cup semifinal.
