Real Madrid have the chance to go top of the La Liga this weekend, with a win – if Atletico Madrid lose their game – but will come up against a resurgent Real Sociedad at the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium.
In the last 22 La Liga meetings between these two teams, Real Madrid have won 17 games, while Real Sociedad have won 2 matches, with the other 2 games ending in a draw. There have been at least 2 goals in 7 of their last 8 clashes.
Real Madrid will be without Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema, Daniel Carvajal, Marcelo, Éder Militão, Sergio Ramos, Álvaro Odriozola, Federico Valverde, Rodrygo due to injury. Real Sociedad, on the other hand, will be without Gaizka Ayesa, Aritz Elustondo, Joseba Zaldúa, Fernández Luna, Miguel Angel Moya, Jon Pacheco, Alex Sola, Luca Sangalli due to injury.
Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane has found a way to manage the team despite the injury crisis, winning 4 straight games in all competitions, while keeping a clean sheet. Sociedad have also picked up form since the return of David Silva. This will be an interesting tie, but the Blancos will continue their run over the Basque side.
You can catch the game live on DSTV channel 204, SuperSport La Liga on Monday, March 1 2021, by 9 pm Naija time.
