Real Madrid have won 3 and lost just once in the last 5 head-to-head meetings against Sociedad

Real Sociedad are unbeaten in their last 5 league matches picking 11 points. They have also won just once in the last 5 home league matches.

Real Sociedad’s run of 5 games without defeat has seen their stock rise in the Spanish La Liga. They are eyeing a spot in the Europa League and are ready to build on this form as they host the Champions in waiting, Real Madrid.

Real Madrid took one step further towards the La Liga title following a keenly contested 3-2 victory in the El Classico. The Los Blancos, since crashing out of the Copa Del Rey back in January, are yet to taste defeat in all competitions.

Madrid head into this tie with confidence and better away form, having won 3 and drawn 2 of their last away trips in the league. Sociedad on the other hand are struggling to find joy at home, having won just 1 and lost 4 of their last 5 home league matches.

Defensively, both teams are not very far apart from each other. Madrid allows an average of 0.7 goals per match, compared to Sociedad’s 1.1 goals per match.

Madrid has no fresh injury worries and Carlo Ancelotti will be expected to rotate his squad, keeping an eye on the Champions League. Sociedad on their part will be happy to welcome back Martin Zubimendi and Igor Xubeldia from suspension.
