Real Sociedad vs Real Madrid Match Analysis & Prediction
02/05/2023 11:00 pm
Real Madrid will be looking to make it back-to-back victories in La Liga when they continue their domestic campaign away to top-four hopefuls Real Sociedad on Tuesday night.
The visitors remain second in the table, 11 points behind leaders Barcelona, while Sociedad are currently in fourth, eight points ahead of fifth-placed Villarreal.
Since losing the Basque derby against Athletic Bilbao on April 15, Real Sociedad have picked up seven points from three league matches, beating Rayo Vallecano and Osasuna, in addition to drawing with Real Betis.
Imanol Alguacil’s side are in pole position to secure a Champions League spot for next season, and it would be their first top-four finish in La Liga for 10 years.
The White and Blues have picked up 28 points from their 15 home league matches this season, but they will be welcoming a Real Madrid side with 31 points from their 16 away games, which is the second-best record behind Barcelona.
Real Madrid managed to bounce back from their surprise 4-2 defeat at Girona last week by claiming a 4-2 victory over Almeria on Saturday.
Los Blancos are in a battle with Atletico Madrid for second, but it would be fair to say that their attention is currently on the Copa del Rey and Champions League, with Real Madrid looking to win both competitions in the latter stages of the season.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side drew 0-0 with Real Sociedad in the reverse fixture at Bernabeu back in January, but Los Blancos have not lost to the White and Blues in La Liga since May 2019.
