League leaders host Real Sociedad

PREVIEW. 05/03/2022

Real Madrid return to action at the Santiago Bernabéu on matchday 27 of LaLiga (9 pm CET).

The final straight of LaLiga approaches and Real Madrid are firmly rooted at the top of the table with 12 matchdays remaining. This evening the Whites face a stern test against Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabéu (9 pm CET) as Carlo Ancelotti’s men go in search of another three points ahead of their Champions League showdown on Wednesday.

Madrid have managed to emerge victorious from many tricky encounters on recent occasions, as was the case in Vallecas last time out, and the side is on a six-game winning streak, keeping clean sheets in the last four outings. The madridistas are also the only side to have netted over 50 goals so far this league campaign.

“I'm feeling confident because the team looks in good shape”, said Ancelotti in the press conference ahead of the clash. Madrid’s visit to the Reale Arena for the reverse fixture in LaLiga ended in a 0-2 victory for the visitors, courtesy of goals by Vini Jr. and Jović, who have both been included in the squad for the match.

Real Sociedad
Imanol Alguacil’s side are deeply entrenched in a battle for the European places and go into the weekend currently in sixth place on 44 points. Real Sociedad have clinched victory in their last two league games, against Osasuna and Mallorca, and Oyarzabal is the team’s top goal-scorer in the competition, with eight goals.
