Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Atletico Madrid returned to scoring form in emphatic fashion after beating Levante 5-0 at the Ciudad de Valencia. Rober’s own goal in the 5th minute kicked off proceedings, and Atletico were able to build on this opener through a brace from Kevin Gameiro either side of the break. Antoine Griezmann came up with a two-minute brace to provide Atletico’s biggest win of the season. Diego Simeone’s team followed that up with a 3-0 victory over Elche. Real Sociedad were involved in an entertaining 2-2 draw with Las Palmas. Tana’s opening goal was cancelled out by Willian Jose and Adnan Januzaj. However, Jonathan Viera’s long-range effort in the 67th minute brought Las Palmas back on level terms. Loic Remy could have later won the game had it not been for the post.

Betting Tips and Predictions

A huge reason behind Atletico being able to score just 21 goals in the first 13 matches and still be able to challenge for a Champions League spot is an impressive defence. Atletico have conceded only six goals this season. Even though Real Sociedad have scored in four out of the last five league matches, they have struggled when it comes to away games against Atletico. I would back a clean sheet for Atletico. Antoine Griezmann is finally back on form and has been able to score three goals in his last two appearances. The French superstar was especially at his best against Levante. He has come up with three goals in six league games against Real Sociedad. I would back Griezmann to score anytime in the game.

Atletico Madrid clean sheet – 1/1

Antoine Griezmann to score anytime – 6/5

Atletico Madrid Preview

After struggling with goals in the first few months of the season, Atletico Madrid appear to have hit the right notes at a crucial stage of the season. The team has scored eight goals in the last two games across all competitions. Even then, Atletico’s scoring record this season is less impressive with the team only managing 21 goals so far. At the back, however, Simeone has imprinted his stamp on the team, as Atletico have conceded only six – only Barcelona have a better record in this regard. Antoine Griezmann and Angel Correa are the top scorers with four goals each.

Atletico Madrid Team News

Juanfran (hamstring) is the only player and available for manager Diego Simeone.

Real Sociedad Preview

Real Sociedad continue to be one of the entertaining teams in the division and the draw with Las Palmas is further proof of the same. Yet, the club’s disappointing run of results in the league is contributing to their inability to mount a top six challenge. If Real Sociedad continue to drop points, even sixth-placed Villarreal will be able to pull ahead. This Real Sociedad outfit has conceded a whopping 24 goals – the second-highest of the top 14 teams in the division. In fact, Real Sociedad have conceded more goals than bottom outfit Deportivo Alaves. Willian Jose and Mikel Oyarzabal are their top scorers with six goals each.

Real Sociedad Team News

Jon Guridi (knee) and Adnan Januzaj (virus) will be on the treatment table, while Alvaro Odriozola is suspended.
