Real Madrid v Real Sociedad La Liga, 10th February 7.45pm
Real Madrid conceded a late equaliser out at the struggling Levante on the weekend to end up blowing another three points in the league this season. It has been a thoroughly unconvincing season from them and they may need to take action in the summer. Real Sociedad are another struggling side that Los Merengues will face this weekend but they did at least get a good home win on the weekend to stop a poor losing streak that they were on.

Real Madrid v Real Sociedad Betting Tips
Things didn’t go too well for Real Madrid once again last weekend in La Liga as they shipped late equaliser against Levante, who are precariously positioned just above the drop zone. That leaves Real Madrid with just a W2 D2 L2 record in their last six games in the Spanish top flight. They did win their last home game though, a massive 7-1 victory over Deportivo and they are W6 D2 L3 in their home games this season. They are averaging over two goals per game at home this term so they have that going for them, it is just their defence hasn’t been up to all that much with an average of a goal against. Over 3.5 goals would be a good place to start for this one then and having a look at both teams to score at bet365 at 4/9 is also going to be a viable option as well. Real Madrid have taken a clean sheet in a third of their home games but none in their last three at the Bernabeu.
Real Madrid landed a 3-1 win out at Sociedad back in September and that is a big six-match winning streak that they are on against Sociedad. They have scored exactly three goals in four of their last five against them and in the bet365 correct score market a Real Madrid 3-1 option is at 9/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 7th, 2018 at 5:44 pm.). That is actually the shortest priced option in the market at the time of writing. The head to head is fully in favour of Los Merengues here as they have lost just one of their last 21 games against Deportivo, winning 17 of those. 64% of the goals that Real Madrid have conceded at home this season have been in the second half of matches so it’s most likely a consolation that Deportivo would get on the board after the break.
Sociedad start the weekend not too far away from the bottom three and they are well out of form as well having racked up defeats recently. They have lost four of their last five league games now and out on the road they are winless in their last six. They lost at fifth-placed Villarreal in their last away game and they have shipped five goals in total in their last two road games. So they have been far from tight at the back, but they landed a big home win over Deportivo last weekend. But with a W3 D2 L5 record away from home this term in the top flight, there doesn’t appear to be enough for them to go and pull off a shock in this one. They have scored well away from home averaging 1.4 goals so again, it’s worth backing them to get on the scoresheet if nothing else. They have scored in each of their last four league games and each of their last four games have made it over 2.5 goals, with them scoring at least in each of their last two. They have only the two clean sheets away from home this season and are currently 15 points worse off than they were at this stage last season.
Who will win – Real Madrid v Real Sociedad Predictions
Real Madrid have been shaky and unreliable but they did win their last home game 7-1 and something has to be taken from that. They will have a big focus coming on the Champions League, the only thing that will save their season, but for now can take this win, but back both teams to score.
