The team from San Sebastian finally looks solid at the back. The new head coach Imanol Alguacial definitely had an impact on such change, but his true test is about to come on Thursday when the second-placed Atletico Madrid come to visit Anoeta.

Diego Simeone’s men will head into the game off the back of a convincing 3-0 win over Levante last timeout. Angel Correa, Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres were eon target for the Mattressers who will be looking to keep the four-point cushion above Valencia in third with a result at Anoeta.

Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid: Head-to-head

Atletico have been slightly more successful over the course of history. They lead the H2H tie by three wins.
Nonetheless, matches at Anoeta rarely saw Atleti on the winning side.

The Basques won 12 and lost only 6 of 20 home encounters with Atletico Madrid.

Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction

Simeone’s men won just one of last five matches on the road across competitions. If we take a look at both the head to head and the current Sociedad’s form, Atleti can hardly be considered favourites here. The Basques won four, drew one and lost just one of last six home games in all competitions and we have to notice the value in backing them not to lose here at the odds of 1.66.

Also, since the hosts were pretty tough to break down recently, backing a low-scoring contest is a good idea. Atletico generally tend to play defensive football under Sim0ene, particularly against talented attacking sides (such as Sociedad) and we will alternatively shoot for the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 1.70.
