After a tough win against Malaga last round in La Liga, Real Madrid will be facing a tough challenge when they host in-form Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu in the 20th round of the Spanish top flight.
The league leaders have been in a really strong form since the start of the season. Los Blancos are only one point ahead of Sevilla and two ahead of Barcelona in the league table so there is no room for error. Real Madrid have collected a total of 10 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Málaga CF at home where they won 2-1.
Real Madrid are currently sitting in the 1st place in the league table. They have 43 points from 13 wins, 4 draws and 1 losses. They have scored 48 goals and conceded 17 since the start of the season.
Marcelo and Luka Modric are new additions to the treatment table for Zinedine Zidane’s men, who are having an injury crisis. Nacho is expected to deputise at left-back, with Danilo most likely to be deployed at right-back.
The visitors are also in a very strong form in recent weeks. The team have won all but one game in their last five La Liga competitions. Real Sociedad have collected a total of 12 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Celta de Vigo at home where they won 1-0.
Real Sociedad are currently sitting in the 5th place in the league table. They have 35 points from 11 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses. They have scored 31 goals and conceded 25 since the start of the season.
Asier Illarramendi returns from suspension and should slot straight back in at the base of midfield. Hector will get a rare start at left-back as Yuri picked up a yellow card last time out to earn him a one-match ban.
