Atletico Madrid to Win

Our prediction here is hardly surprising since Atletico Madrid is the obvious favourite in the match, despite the fact that Real Sociedad is a very good team. However, Atletico is fighting for the title and they have to win this game to remain on top. Furthermore, they are in better form than Real Sociedad, although the guests did win three of their last four matches.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The title contenders are known for their defensive style of football and focus clean sheets, so it’s a logical choice to bet on under 2.5 total goals. After all, Atletico Madrid averages 2.37 goals per game, while Real Sociedad is not that far ahead with 2.51 goals per game. Furthermore, the last five h2h matches between these two teams have gone under 2.5 total goals, so that seems like a smart bet.

Both Teams to Score – No

If you want better odds, we suggest betting on Atletico Madrid to win to nil, but if you want to play it a bit safer, betting on one team not scoring is a smart move. Atletico Madrid has kept a clean sheet in 51% of their matches, while Real Sociedad is also good in this regard with a clean sheet in 37% of their games. Also, both teams have scored in just one of the last five meetings between these two teams.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad preview: A huge game for the home team

While both teams need points here, Atletico Madrid is fighting to keep their two-point advantage in the title race over Barcelona and Real Madrid, so it’s a crucial game for them. Meanwhile, Real Sociedad is trying to secure a spot in the Europa League.

Atletico Madrid

A draw with Barcelona at Camp Nou wasn’t the best result for Atletico Madrid since it gave a chance to their city rivals to tie them for the first place, but Real Madrid barely avoided defeat against Sevilla, so things are exactly the same as they were before the weekend – only there’s one match less to go until the end. Atletico Madrid has won four of their last eight matches in La Liga, along with two draws and two losses. The team is almost completely healthy since only Lemar is injured at the moment.

Real Sociedad

After a bit of a slip in form that lasted for a few weeks, Real Sociedad managed to get back on track with three wins in their last four games. Thanks to this, they’ve stayed in 5th place with four points ahead of the closest rivals in the fight for a spot in the Europa League next season. These earlier struggles were partly due to extensive injury problems that the team faced. The situation is a bit better now, but Real Sociedad will still be without six players in the match with Atletico Madrid.
