Real Madrid has only suffered one loss in the last five games, and it was against Barcelona in the Super Cup. Madrid is three points behind Barcelona, and they can’t afford to lose this game vs Sociedad so that they can try to catch Barcelona in the coming weeks.
Real Sociedad is the best team in the La Liga in the last five rounds by stats. They have won all five games, scoring 11 goals and conceding only two goals in those matches.

Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad Predictions
Both Teams to Score @ 1.90 (10/11)
Real Madrid have scored at least a goal in 29 of their matches this season and conceded 16 so far. It makes them one of the best choices for betting on La Liga scoring outcomes like BTTS and a total over 2.5.
On the other hand, Real Sociedad scored at least a goal in 10 of their 11 matches overall, and they are in their best form of the season and should get a lot of scoring chances. We like both teams to score in this game, which has happened in six of their last eight matches.
Karim Benzema to Score @ 2.20 (6/5)
Karim Benzema has been phenomenal for Madrid this season. Benzema has failed to score in a match only twice in Madrid’s last 10 games, having scored nine goals in those 10 matches. Karim is on penalties too, and he should get scoring opportunities vs Sociedad, and he can score against them as he did in their last encounter.
Real Madrid to Win @ 1.75 (3/4)
We think that betting on Real Madrid is the best pick (side-wise) in this match. Real Madrid are in good form, and they should carry the momentum of their comeback win against their rivals, Atletico Madrid, in the last game on Thursday.
