Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Real Madrid’s poor season hit fresh lows after a 2-2 draw with Levante in the latest league match. Sergio Ramos’ opening goal in the 11th minute was cancelled out by Emmanuel Boetang just before the break. Isco put the defending champions back in front with an 81st minute goal, but the home team had the last laugh with Giampaolo Pazzini’s 89th minute equaliser. Real Sociedad returned to form in emphatic fashion after a 5-0 thrashing of Deportivo La Coruna. Willian Jose’s 32nd minute goal was the only difference between the two teams until the hour mark. A late collapse led to Real Sociedad scoring through Illarramendi (2), Canales, and Aritz Elustondo.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Willian Jose has scored only once in five games against Real Madrid. However, the 26-year-old comes into this match on the back of goals in each of his last four games. He is expected to have further opportunities to build on his 11 La Liga goals, as this Real Madrid team have been conceding in great numbers. Real Madrid have conceded close to 2 goals per game over the last six matches and their last clean sheet was against Sevilla at the start of December. I would back Willian Jose to score anytime in the match.

The Real Sociedad outfit have not been strong at the back. Real Madrid have been getting around 21 shots per game at the Santiago Bernabeu with an average of 2.4 goals. This translates into an 11% conversion rate, but Real Sociedad’s weak defence gives confidence about backing Real Madrid to score over 3.5 goals.

Willian Jose to score anytime – 7/4

Real Madrid to score over 3.5 goals – 5/4

Real Madrid scored over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Real Madrid scored over 2.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played against Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played against Real Madrid

Real Madrid Preview

Real Madrid are showing no signs of putting together a consistent run, as the late equaliser from Levante resulted in some harsh words from the Zinedine Zidane. The club’s La Liga form has been so bad in recent weeks that Real Madrid may even fail to qualify automatically for the Champions League. Madrid’s saving grace has been the form of Valencia, who have been dropping points at such a furious pace. Cristiano Ronaldo is the top scorer at the club with eight league goals.

Real Madrid Team News

Daniel Ceballos (ankle) and Jesus Vallejo (thigh) are the names unavailable for Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane.

Real Sociedad Preview

Real Sociedad head into the game after having just concluded their worst run of the campaign. The four-game losing streak experienced by Real Sociedad is one better than the streak that they went through at the start of the season. Furthermore, there have been plenty of doubts raised on the team’s ability to stay away from the relegation zone – let alone fight for a European spot. Real Sociedad had conceded 10 goals in the last three La Liga matches coming into the game against Deportivo La Coruna. The emphatic victory provides the team with some much-needed confidence, while the club’s top scorer Willian Jose is now on to 11 goals for the campaign.

Real Sociedad Team News

Imanol Agirretxe (hamstring), Carlos Martinez (shoulder), Adnan Januzaj (groin), Ruben Pardo (ankle), David Zurutuza (thigh), and Diego Llorente (ankle) are the players unavailable for Real Sociedad.
