Real Sociedad vs Real Madrid Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Real Sociedad have been one of the surprise packages of the La Liga 2017-18 season and they secured a 4-2 win over Deportivo La Coruna during the weekend. Early goals from Juanmi and Illarramendi were cancelled out by Adrian and Florin Andone. However, Real Sociedad picked up a third consecutive league win after late goals from Diego Llorente and Illarramendi. In the midweek action, Real Sociedad convincingly beat Rosenberg 4-0 in the Europa League. Real Madrid were involved in a surprise 1-1 draw with Levante during the weekend. Ivi Lopez’ early goal was cancelled out by Lucas Vazquez, but there was no winner for Zinedine Zidane’s team. Cristiano Ronaldo’s return helped Real Madrid beat APOEL 3-0 in the midweek Champions League action. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The impressive performance from Real Madrid in the Champions League aim was not surprising, as they had Cristiano Ronaldo back in the squad. I surprisingly see Real Sociedad as being in a better position coming into the game. Real Sociedad will have to contend with less rest from the midweek games, but they have home advantage. Madrid have a mediocre record at the Anoeta with just four wins in the last six visits. I would go with a surprise win for Real Sociedad.

Juanmi has scored in all three league games this season and he is the top scorer at Real Sociedad. Even though I am aware that Juanmi has not scored against Real Madrid since coming to Real Sociedad, his recent form makes him a strong contender to score. His last goal against Madrid was with Malaga during the 2014-15 season. Even then, I would go with Juanmi to score anytime in the game.

Real Sociedad win – 4/1

Juanmi to score anytime – 12/5

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

Real Sociedad Preview

The start to the season has been quite spectacular by Real Sociedad, as they are one of the three teams to possess a 100% record – even after just three games. A large reason for the success is down to the attacking prowess displayed by the club. Real Sociedad have been able to score 10 goals to lead the La Liga table on this front. Real Sociedad have scored more goals than Barcelona and Real Madrid. Juanmi is the top scorer at the club with three league goals.

Real Sociedad Team News

Real Sociedad will be without Raul Rodriguez (back), Inigo Martinez (unknown), and Carlos Martinez (cruciate ligament) due to injuries, while Mikel Oyarzabal (shin) is doubtful for the game.

Real Madrid Preview

The absence of key players is starting to hurt Real Madrid, as the defending champions were involved in a second consecutive draw – especially at the Santiago Bernabeu. Last season, Madrid were only involved in four draws and a defeat in the home games. The club have already been involved in two draws at home this season. Karim Benzema adds to the injury list for Zinedine Zidane, while the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo will be the biggest blow. Ronaldo’s return to the Champions League scored immediately lifted the club to a comfortable win. Marco Asensio is the top scorer at Madrid this season with two league goals.
