Soccer predictions for Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad
Real Madrid hosts Real Sociedad in the 18th round of the Spanish La Liga. The duel is this Sunday, January 6, at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid.
Real Madrid is in 4th place in the Spanish standings with 30 points and is two points behind Sevilla’s third-placed team. Real Madrid has already played a game in the league this season after making a 2-2 win at the Villarreal stadium in the 17th round in the middle of the week. Karim Benzema and Raphael Varane were right for Madrid in this game but with both goals for Villarreal Santiago Cazorla did not allow Santiago Solari to leave with the win.
Real Madrid have won only 53% of their matches this season, as this percentage is much higher at home – 75%. In his home games, Real Madrid scored an average of 1.63 goals per game, at the same time allowed only 0.38 goals per game per game. Real Madrid defeated Rayo Vallecano 1-0 in his last home game in La Liga and previously beat Valencia 2-0, so it will not be a surprise if the Los Blancos keep a dry net in the upcoming match.
Real Sociedad is ranked 15th in La Liga’s 19-point standings. The guests have won 29% of their matches in the championship season 2018/19. Real Sociedad performs better on a foreign field by winning 13 points in 9 games while home has only six points in eight games. In his last visit, Real Sociedad lost 0:1 from Getafe and before that he retreated with Real Betis.
Real Sociedad has 10 losses in its last 12 games against Real Madrid. The Los Merengues have won both matches against this opponent last season by convincing both matches, winning 5:2 and 3:1, so I expect a victory with at least two goals difference from the composition of Santiago Solari.
