By the time Atletico Madrid kick the ball in this match, the gap at the top could extend to 10 if Ernesto Valverde's men beat Real Madrid in El Clasico. That means, if Diego Simeone's men are to keep their hopes of the title alive, they must win this game, come what may.
The Rojiblancos are in good form though, having won the last three games. One of those wins was a 2-0 victory against the mighty Juventus in the 1st leg last-16 Champions League match, which shows that the team is hitting the top form at the right time.
Real Sociedad, meanwhile, are aiming to break into the top-4. This is a golden opportunity for them as both Valencia and Sevilla are struggling for consistency this season.
As things stand, the hosts are sitting at 8th in the table, only three adrift of 4th place. The Royals are in a very good form having gone unbeaten in the last 10 matches. And to make good omen for the hosts, Sociedad have beaten Atletico Madrid three times since 2015-16 season.
