All eyes will be on Reale Arena as Real Sociedad host Real Madrid in a Spanish La Liga fixture on Saturday night. Both teams have been among the best this season but Real have looked a different class in recent weeks and will be full of confidence in this one.

Real Sociedad have been one of the surprise teams in La Liga this season and were clear at the top of the standings during the early stages of the campaign. However, a recent slump has seen them drop to third, seven points off the pace.

Imanol Alguacil’s men are winless in three of their last four matches across all competitions and were beaten 1-0 by Espanyol last time out in La Liga. However, they showed glimpses of their old form in midweek as they eased to a 4-0 victory over lower league side Panaderia Pulido in the Copa del Rey.

Real Sociedad have surprisingly found things difficult at home lately claiming just one win from their last five matches at Reale Arena. They were held to a 0-0 draw by Valencia in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Real Madrid have now opened up a seven-point lead at the top of La Liga after claiming a 1-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday. Karim Benzema was once again the hero as his effort five minutes from halftime proved to be the difference.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti has gotten his Real Madrid side looking almost unstoppable lately with nine wins and a draw from their last 10 matches across all competitions. They have also impressed on their recent travels and are currently on a five-match winning run away from home.

The goals have flowed freely for Real Madrid this season and have earned a number of one-sided victories away from home. They triumphed 4-1 over Granada in their previous La Liga fixture on the road.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have Real Madrid as favourites at 21/17 with SBK while a victory for Real Sociedad is valued at 12/5 by betfair. A draw is set at odds of 13/5 by BoyleSports.

Head to head

Real Madrid have a 29-12 advantage with 11 draws from 52 previous matches against Real Sociedad. Madrid are also unbeaten in the last three fixtures between both teams, although they were held to a 1-1 draw in the most recent meeting back in March.

Players to watch

Much of Real Sociedad’s attacking play goes through Mikel Oyarzabal and the forward could be worth keeping an eye on. He has six goals in 10 La Liga appearances this season and is priced at 47/20 by Unibet to find the net on Saturday.

Karim Benzema’s effort last time out against Athletic Bilbao means he has now scored 12 goals in 14 La Liga matches this season. The French striker could be worth considering in the anytime goalscorer market at 29/20 with Unibet.

Anything else catch the eye?

There has been BTTS in five of the last six matches between both clubs and SBK is offering 3/4 for a similar outcome. Four of those matches have produced over 3.5 goals which is priced at 9/4 by Skybet while over 2.5 goals is set at odds of 10/11 by betfair.

Real Sociedad and Real Madrid have produced more goals after the break in three of their last four meetings so the second half could be tipped as the highest scoring half at 11/10 with Paddy Power.
