Real Madrid 1/5 to beat Real Sociedad in Saturday’s La Liga battle
Competition: La Liga
Market: Real Madrid to beat Real Sociedad
Odds: 1/5 @ Bet365
La Liga continues this weekend for yet another huge round of games with the excitement only building. The league is now past the halfway point which means teams are beginning to see the heights their campaign can reach or, in the case of the bottom sides, the depths they could fall to. With all of this in mind, Real Madrid host Real Sociedad on Saturday.
By their incredibly high standard, this has been a very poor season for Real Madrid. After 21 games they have won 11, drawn six and lost four, scoring 45 goals and conceding 21 times. In their last five they have won twice, drawn twice and lost once, which has seen them onto 39 points. Madrid are currently 19 points short of Barcelona at the top with their title challenge already over. While they have a game in hand over Valencia, meaning they can move back into third if they win it, they will still be incredibly disappointed with how poor their season has been.
Real Sociedad have been fairly good this season and they are looking to continue their rise up the table. After 22 games they have won seven, drawn five and lost 10, scoring 41 goals and conceding 40 times. In their last five they have lost four times and won once which has seen them onto 26 points. Sociedad are nine points clear of the relegation zone and have been in superb scoring form this season, but their inability to stay solid at the back has hurt them massively.
