Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 10 February 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Estadio Sabtiago Bernabeu (Madrid).
Real Madrid have bagged as many as 11 goals in back-to-back wins over Valencia and Deportivo La Coruna and everything suggested another trashing directed by Cristiano Ronaldo & company last weekend when they played Levante at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia. Instead, the reigning champions have offered another cold shower for their fans playing only a 2-2 draw with the relegation strugglers.
We now have more than enough reasons to start arguing about Madrid’s potential drop to fifth place in La Liga knowing that Villarreal are only two points behind them in the league ladder at the moment. To make things worse for Zinedine Zidane, his team will have a super challenging couple of weeks ahead of them as they are to host Real Sociedad on Saturday, just four days before the first leg of their Champions League tie against star-studded PSG at Santiago Bernabeu.
Additionally, the Basques should be able to cause plenty of troubles to Zidane’s vulnerable defensive line here given that the visitors have notched as many as five goals in last Friday’s thumping of Deportivo La Coruna at Anoeta. Nonetheless, we also have to mention that Sociedad are also lame at the back as they have the league’s fourth 3eakest defensive record with 40 conceded goals in 22 matches so far.
Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad: Head-to-head
Real Madrid have been the dominant force in the most recent history of this match-up.
Los Blancos have won six on the trot against the Basques netting three or more goals on five occasions in the process.
Overall, Real have won 15 and lost only 2 of 22 matches against Real Sociedad at Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad: Prediction
We should really see goals here since both teams have been super vulnerable at the back yet even more prolific up front of late.
Real Madrid must not take gamble unless they want to jeopardize their top four finish and backing the home win & BTTS looks to be the way to go.
