Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid quickly recovered from their respective defeats to Barcelona and Villarreal by beating the likes of Elche and Valencia last weekend.

Sociedad rebounded with their second clean sheet of the season, clinching a narrow 0-1 victory at Elche last Saturday.

The former Celta Vigo star Brais Mendez made the difference netting his first Sociedad goal early in the game, while Mikel Merino missed a penalty before the break.

Head coach Imanol Alguacil was satisfied to see his men keeping things quiet at the back after shipping four goals in a catastrophic home loss to Barcelona beforehand.

Sociedad’s back line will be seriously tested once again this Saturday against Atletico Madrid who have explosive attacking line led by the likes of Joao Felix and Alvaro Morata.

Antoine Griezmann got his second goal of the season on Monday in a 0-1 victory over Valencia away at Estadio de Mestalla.

Much like Sociedad, Atletico Madrid also have two clean-sheet wins in their pockets after the opening three rounds of the new season and they will come into this tie in equally high spirits.

Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Atletico Madrid have won only 9 of 19 league games on the road in the previous term of La Liga. San Sebastian has traditionally been a tough place to play for them since Atleti only have 9 wins in the last 26 away clashes against Real Sociedad.

We like the hosts not to lose pick at the 1.50 odds. Since Sociedad and Atletico Madrid have kept two clean sheets each in the inaugural three games of the season, we are also going to back the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the 1.61 odds.
