Real Sociedad vs Real Madrid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 4 December 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Reale Arena.
The Los Blancos have finally made it to the top of the table, and if history is any indication, it would be hard to bring them down now. They have built quite some momentum, and almost all of their players are in top form.
They have a great test coming up though. One of their chief rivals for the top spot this season, Sociedad, will be their opponents for the coming match-day.
By all means, expect a fierce encounter, as both will fight it out to get a formidable advantage in the title-race. Still, Real Madrid should manage to grind out a win.
