Real Madrid vs Sociedad Prediction
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be a home win in full-time. Real Madrid has won their last five matches in their schedule, with clean sheets in four of those fixtures. Real Sociedad is on a winning streak in the campaign, which shows they have some fight left in them.
Their scoring has been weak despite pushing high in the front as they lack an in-form striker. Both Hazard and Benzema have been out of contention because of injuries for Los Blancos. With their poor scoring form and having to depend on their defenders to score, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters.
The home win in full-time will also come in handy regarding their ground advantage in the middle. Besides, they have still pulled a CL win in the last game despite having most of the key players on the bench.
