Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad
KICK OFF: Saturday 27th Oct 2018 | 20:45 CET
LA LIGA WK10 | WANDA METROPOLITANO
Atletico Madrid won’t be stopped despite Sociedad’s excellence in the final third
Atletico Madrid have a big chance to go top of the table with a win over Real Sociedad, with Atleti’s closest competitors including Sevilla, Barcelona, and Real Madrid all to play on Sunday.
Simeone’s men have gone seven straight games in all competitions without losing, and they have enough to continue their excellent spell. Their attacking contingent has been sublime and the backline solid, and the two ends can deliver again for a comfortable win.
Real Sociedad are where we expect them to be at the moment – mid-table. They are only four points adrift their opponents, and they will be looking to upset the hosts, having won 3 – 0 the last time they met. Furthermore, Sociedad have been impressive on the road, gaining three wins from four, as opposed to none on home turf.
It is unlikely Atletico Madrid will throw away the chance to lead the standings. On the other hand, Sociedad have decent scoring form. Therefore, a home win and both teams to score looks a banker bet.
Key Match Facts
- Both teams scored in just one of their last eight encounters.
- Real Sociedad have scored in seven of their eight league matches so far.
Result Prediction: Atletico Madrid Win
Score Prediction: Both teams to score
