Real Sociedad v Real Madrid meet in the 4th Week of La Liga at Anoeta on Sunday (19:45, UK Time). Los Blancos need to bounce back after two draws in a row.
Real Sociedad v Real Madrid Preview
Real Sociedad have started brilliantly La Liga. They are topping the table after winning the first three games, scoring 10 goals against Deportivo, Villarreal and Celta Vigo. Besides, they made their debut in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday thrashing Rosenborg (4-0) at home with two goals scored by Diego Llorente. Eusebio Sacristán cannot count on Carlos Martínez, Raúl Navas and Jon Guridi, whereas Iñigo Martínez and Oyarzabal are doubtful.
Real Madrid made their debut in the Champions League on Wednesday with an easy victory against APOEL. Cristiano Ronaldo was the star of the game with two goals, but he’s still suspended in La Liga, so he’ll miss his last game. Marcelo is also banned after being sent against Levante, so Theo Hernández will be the left back. Karim Benzema and Mateo Kovacic are injured, so Asensio and Bale are the only attacking players available, together with Borja Mayoral.

This is a very tough test for Zidane’s men. The team travels with a lot of absences, especially in the attacking line. Besides, Real Sociedad won all four games of the season, but we have to be optimistic with the team. For this reason, we’re going to back Real Madrid and both teams to score here.
