Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid

, KO: 15:15 May 25, 2024, Reale Arena
Atletico Madrid

REAL SOCIEDAD welcome Atletico Madrid to Reale Arena for their final La Liga fixture of the season. Both teams have shown similar form in recent weeks and as they appear evenly matched at the moment, a closely fought encounter could be on the cards.

Real Sociedad are coming off a 2-0 victory at Real Betis last time out in La Liga with Brais Mendez and Mikel Merino getting the goals. That was the third win in the last four matches for Imanol Alguacil’s men, who appear to be ending the season on a positive note.

Having already secured a sixth place finish and a spot in Europe, Real Sociedad have only pride to play for on Saturday. They will be keen to give the home fans something to cheer about and are unbeaten in three of their last four matches at Reale Arena.

Atletico Madrid suffered a surprise 4-1 defeat to Osasuna in their previous La Liga fixture. While it was a disappointing result, manager Diego Simeone will consider it a blip as they had won their previous four fixtures.

Like Sociedad, Atletico Madrid are only playing for pride on Saturday having already secured a Champions League finish. They travel to Reale Arena with three wins from their last four away matches.

How the bookies view it: Sociedad slightly favoured

Real Sociedad have the edge among the bookies with a home win priced at 7/5 by bet365. A victory for Atletico Madrid is valued at 2/1 while a draw is set at odds of 23/10.

Recent head to head: Atleti with the edge

Atletico Madrid are unbeaten in the last five meetings, claiming three wins in that run, including a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture back in October. However, the last two meetings at Reale Arena have ended in draws.

Players to watch: No answers for Griezmann

Antoine Griezmann has 16 La Liga goals this season and will be the one to watch for Atletico Madrid. The forward has also found the net in two of the last three meetings with Real Sociedad and is priced at 5/2 by bet365 to maintain his scoring run.

Mikel Oyarzabal was on target in the reverse fixture and could be worth keeping an eye on for Real Sociedad. The attacker has nine La Liga goals this season and is priced at 21/10 by bet365 to score anytime.

Probable line-ups

Real Sociedad will be without centre-back Robin Le Normand, who is currently nursing an injury. He is likely to be replaced by Jon Pacheco.
Atletico Madrid are expected to make changes, with Alvaro Morata likely to be handed a start after coming off the bench to net the consolation against Osasuna.
