Real Sociedad already touches the Champions League with the tips of their fingers. The txuri-urdin are signing an extraordinary season that may culminate with the first qualification for the European competition in its history. He only lacks four points, although with three he could be finished. With nine points at stake, Natalia Arroyo’s side are six ahead of their pursuers, Atlético, Real Madrid and Granadilla but they also have the advantage of having the goalaverage won against the rojiblancas, lost against the whites and waiting to play the duel in Tenerife although with a 3-0 win in Zubieta. Some results that could give him the classification with only one victory and this could arrive this Sunday.

Zubieta will be a pressure cooker. It is true that lately the txuri-urdin are having a hard time getting the games at home. They lost to Madrid CFF in their last game and before that against Barcelona and Real Madrid, as well as drawing against Atlético. Even so, The women from San Sebastian face a relegated Rayo Vallecano (12:00 p.m.) and could sign their mathematical classification if two of their three rivals do not win. Because those of Natalia Arroyo, adding three more points, know that It is very difficult for the Champions League option to escape since the rest of their opponents could only tie them and they have good results in direct confrontations. Of course, a quadruple tie or triple tie had to go to the mini league between those involved.

In addition to the duel against Rayo, who will arrive wanting to vindicate themselves even though they are already relegated, those of Natalia Arroyo will face Granadilla and Alavés, already saved, on the last day. Except for a total disaster, it is hard to believe that the txuri-urdin will not be able to add four of the nine points at stake.

Best historical classification

The Royal Society will achieve, in any case, its best historical classification. Since its creation, back in 2004, the donostiarras had never been so close to the runner-up. Until now, his best position had been fifth place twice: 2015-16 and 2020-21. Although his greatest achievement, without a doubt, It was the Copa de la Reina that he won in Granada in the 2018-19 season thanks to a goal from Nahikari. The women from San Sebastian have occupied that second position since matchday five, which also frees them from a previous round of the Champions League. And they want to keep it until the end…
