Real Madrid vs Sociedad Prediction & Match Preview

Real Madrid

Real Sociedad

01 March 2021 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET La Liga Alfredo di Stefano

Real Madrid will be looking to extend their winning run to five games when they take on Real Sociedad in the La Liga round 25. 

Los Blancos have been producing fine displays in the Spanish top flight of late despite the number of absentees, and it is more than obvious that they are eager to melt Atletico Madrid’s advantage in the standings. 

Even though Benzema, Carvajal, Hazard, Marcelo, and Ramos have been struggling with injuries of late, home win should be considered as the reigning champions have found their best form in recent weeks.

La Real did well to crush Alaves in the Basque derby at the weekend, with Isak scoring a hat-trick. 

Real Madrid, though, do not suit Real Sociedad, and we do not believe that David Silva and Co. are capable of spoiling los Blancos’ party at Alfredo di Stefano Stadium. Muguruza is back from suspension for the visitors.

Team News:

Madrid's injury list, as mentioned, is still substantial, with Rodrygo Goes, Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Eden Hazard, Eder Militao, Alvaro Odriozola and Federico Valverde all unavailable for selection.

Karim Benzema and Marcelo have both made progress in their recoveries, but Monday's game is expected to come too soon, with Benzema being saved for the Madrid derby.

As a result, Zidane could decide to select the same XI that started against Atalanta in the Champions League, with Isco operating as the false nine between Marco Asensio and Vinicius Junior.

As for Real Sociedad, Luca Sangalli, Miguel Moya and Joseba Zaldua are still injured, while Aritz Elustondo is unlikely to be cleared to play as he recovers from an ankle problem.

Mikel Merino is suspended due to the yellow card that he picked up against Alaves, meaning that Jon Guridi could feature in midfield, while Portu is expected to keep out Adnan Januzaj in attack.

David Silva was not involved in Thursday's Europa League clash with Man United but should be back in the side here, while Asier Illarramendi and Nacho Monreal are also expected to return.

Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Vazquez, Nacho, Varane, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Asensio, Isco, Vinicius

Real Sociedad possible starting lineup:
Remiro; Gorosabel, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Monreal; D Silva, Illarramendi, Guridi; Portu, Isak, Oyarzabal
