Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad Match Preview
Real Madrid breezed past second division outfit Real Zaragoza on the road with a whopping 4-0 scorecard in the previous round of this competition. The hosts hardly broke a sweat in that latter matchup, which saw four different players rise to the occasion for Los Blancos. At the moment, the home team are sporting a stellar five-match winning streak under their belt as well.
On the other hand, Real Sociedad got the better of Osasuna at home in their respective Copa Del Rey clash. The visitors took the lead through Alexander Isak, close to the half-hour mark, in that game, only for their counterparts to equalize three minutes later.
Nevertheless, a strike from Martin Odegaard post the restart, closely followed by a second from Isak, helped the guests post a convincing 3-1 scoreline, at the last blast of the whistle.
However, it is certainly worth mentioning that Real Sociedad have stumbled twice in their last five fixtures on the trot. Given the sheer stature of the team that they are about to face as well, a win for the visitors just does not fit the equation.
Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Real Madrid are in fine form at the moment, and there can be no surprises there. Zinedine Zidane’s men are yet to taste defeat at home this season and are currently sporting a thirteen-match unbeaten streak here across multiple competitions.
Their foes for the week though, have not been able to enjoy a similar run of form on the road so far. The guests have been at the losing end in each of their past two outings, despite squaring up against fairly mediocre teams.
To make matters worse, Real Sociedad have secured the bragging rights just once in their previous thirteen visits to this stadium. Taking into account the absolute dominance of Los Blancos in their own backyard, the guests can rule out any chances of coming out on top in this one.
Furthermore, there have been no dearth of goals whenever these two sides lock horns. Nine of the last ten h2h fixtures here have featured over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards.
Considering that the visitors have also conceded two goals or more goals in three of their past four outings, count on Real Madrid to run riot in the final third come Thursday.
