Real Sociedad vs Real Madrid

La Liga, Spain

Flying high on the back of their 5-0 win against Deportivo Coruna, Real Sociedad will be hoping for a positive result this gameweek as well when they visit Santiago Bernabeu to face an inconsistent Real Madrid side. From thrashing Deportivo Coruna 7-1 to drawing against relegation bound Levante, Real Madrid have faced everything in their season so far. It will be interesting to see how they deal with their spirited visitors next up.

Match Prediction:

Despite Real Sociedad on a high after their last game, they’d be more than aware of the fact that Real Madrid can do the same to them what they did to Deportivo La Cortuna. Real Madrid will only have to make sure they do not fall prey to another blunder like they did against Levante. We predict it to be a 3-1 win for Real Madrid.
