With two Champions League qualification contenders meeting, we think there could be plenty of goals at both ends at the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan

Unusual for a La Liga Friday night offering is an extremely appealing encounter between two sides with European ambitions between Sevilla and Real Sociedad.

The hosts remain just three points behind Atletico Madrid in their battle for third place, while La Real would move up to fifth with a win at the Sanchez Pizjuan. Back in January, Sevilla recorded their biggest away win of the season with a 4-0 thrashing of La Real in San Sebastian and Jorge Sampaoli's side are clear favorites to claim another victory.

In their own stadium, the Andalusians have lost just one of their 17 league matches this season with that defeat coming at the hands of Barcelona. Of those 17 games, Sevilla have won 13 and bet365 - who are live streaming the game for UK-based customers - offer another triumph at 8/11 (1.72).

Real Sociedad for their part have been impressive away from home this season with only Barcelona and Real Madrid winning more away games, and the Basques are priced at 16/5 (4.20) to record their 10th win on the road. 

With La Real strong away from home and Sevilla boasting a formidable record on their own turf, there is a strong temptation to back both teams to score at 4/7 (1.57).

The hosts have scored in 33 of their last 35 league games at the Sanchez Pizjuan, while their opponents have the fifth-best away scoring record in the division. For higher odds however, we can combine this selection with over 2.5 goals in the game which is offered at the more attractive price of 10/11 (1.91).

This has proved a regular winner over the last few weeks in matches involving La Real, paying in four of their last five games, while also proving profitable in three of Sevilla's last four encounters. 

Defensively the visitors have not been particularly impressive of late keeping just one clean sheet in 11 games, yet they have been consistently scoring and they should be able to contirbute to a game with plenty of goals on Friday night. 

Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score at 10/11 (1.91) for a 2pt stake with bet365
