Real Madrid are always the big favourites to win their games according to the bookmakers. However, the first game of the season is not easy at all and the bookmakers pay very good money for Real Madrid to beat Real Sociedad in Anoeta.
Last year, with Rafa Benítez on the bench, Los Blancos failed to win the first game in La Liga and drew against Sporting Gijón, a new promoted team. With this lesson in mind, Real Madrid expect to start well the season and beat Real Sociedad, as they did last season, when Gareth Bale scored the only goal of the game.
In Betfair, for instance, you can back Real Madrid to win with good odds. The British company pays ¾ Real Madrid to win, whereas the draw pays 14/5 and Real Sociedad victory is 4/1. Another good bet could bet both teams to score, as Real Madrid have received many goals in this pre-season, including two goals in the European Supercup and three goals against Stade Reims. In Betfair you can bet ‘Both teams to score’ with 7/10 odds.

Gareth Bale was the leader last season on the pitch when Real Madrid beat Real Sociedad. For this game, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo are ruled out for the clash, so Gareth Bale has to step up and lead the team. If the Welsh scores the first goal of the game, Betfair pays 9/2 and if he scores at any moment the odd is 7/5. If the former Tottenham player is able to score two goals, the odd is as high as 6/1.
However, the most likely player to score a goal against Real Sociedad is Álvaro Morata. If the Spaniard scores the first goal of the game, Betfair gives you 7/2 and if Morata scores a goal in any moment, the odd is slightly lower, 5/4.
