Real Sociedad vs. Atletico Madrid Predictions and Preview
Real Sociedad are unbeaten in all ten of their fixtures in 2019, although six of those matches have ended in draws, including five of their last seven.
Imanol Aguacil’s side have conceded just one goal in the last five matches and sit eighth in La Liga, with 35 points from 25 games.
Atletico Madrid are coming off the back of a hugely impressive week – their 2-0 Champions League win over Juventus was sandwiched in-between victories over Rayo Vallecano and Villarreal.
Los Rojiblancos are back up to second in the league standings with 50 points from 25 games – two points clear of Real Madrid but seven behind league leaders Barcelona.
These fixtures tend to produce a relatively low number of goals with only 16 going in across the most recent seven meetings, so under 1.5 goals at 13/8 appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 4/7.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 11/4.
One to watch for Real Sociedad: Willian Jose is the dangerman for the hosts, he has netted nine goals in La Liga starts this season, including five in his last seven. He is at 27/10 to score here.
One to watch for Atletico Madrid: Antoine Griezmann returns against his former club here and already has 12 goals to his name this campaign. He is at 17/10 to score against his old employers.
Long shot: Real Sociedad have had two scoreless draws in their last three league games while Atleti have three successive clean sheets. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 6/1.
