Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Sociedad would be proud of how their latest away tie panned out. Taking on tough customer Granada, the guests scored their first in the 21st minute. The home team did try their best to hit back and succeeded in slotting one in the 36th.
Things looked set for the spoils to be shared. However, in the 89th minute, scorer of the earlier goal, Portu, once again turned savior for the visitors.
On the other hand, in what was practically a must-win fixture for Los Blancos, their famed Champions League spirit was on full display, as the Spanish squad run riot with a 6-0 scorecard, against Galatasaray. While Karim Benzema chipped in with two goals and an assist, Brazilian youngster Rodrygo recorded a perfect hattrick to ensure the three points.
This match-day, the hosts are majorly in the driving seat, in spite of the form by Sociedad. First of all, the Bernabeu factor tips the scale in favor of Zidane’s men. And then, the sheer talent pool that the Madrid outfit possesses on their roster, raises the likelihood of a home win.
Further, the form the likes of Benzema, Eden Hazard, Sergio Ramos, etc are in, increments the chances of the Royal Whites.
Moreover, despite the recent losses in h2h fixtures, the capital contingent has performed phenomenally well against this opponent in the last two decades, and especially so at this stadium.
Finally, it deserves mentioning that despite the form Sociedad has displayed, they have not fared well on the road against tough squads, which Los Blancos certainly are one.
Likely, expect Real Madrid to register a convincing win this Saturday.
