Real Sociedad – Real Madrid
Real Madrid continue to chase Barcelona at the top of La Liga. On Sunday Los Blancos will have a difficult trip to San Sebastian to face Real Sociedad in a match from the 30th week of the league. Let’s preview it in these few paragraphs which are about to follow.
The manager Zinedine Zidane could be happy with the way his team restarted the season after the COVID-19 pandemic break. Los Blancos won twice against Eibar and Valencia, scoring six goals and conceding just one. That’s a pretty good shape which could help Madrid to beat Barca for the title. The question is – can they keep this level until the end of the campaign?
Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio were the two huge stars against Valencia. Real Madrid won this game with 3-0, dominating Los Che in the second half. Benzema scored twice, while Asensio scored once and made an assist in his first match for 2020. Could Asensio find himself in the starting eleven against Sociedad? We won’t be surprised.
At this moment Real Madrid is just two points behind the leader Barcelona. Against Real Sociedad Los Blancos will try to avenge the defeat they suffered against the Basques at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Sociedad are not looking in their best shape since the restart of the league. La Real won just one point from the two games against Osasuna and Deportivo Alaves. The Basques are still fighting for a place in the Top 4, but they need to step up their game if they want to find themselves there. Right now Sociedad are just two points behind the 4th Atletico Madrid, so they must be motivated enough to improve.
What can we add up for the La Liga game between Real Sociedad and Real Madrid on Sunday? Clearly Los Blancos are the team in a better shape at the moment, but La Real are always dangerous. The visitors must be careful here.
