Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad Prediction and Betting Preview, 19 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-1
Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad PredictionStringing a couple of impressive results earlier in the season, Real Sociedad quickly cemented their place as one of the better sides in the league this term. Under the tutelage of Imanol Alguacil, they looked a completely different team, turning heads with their performances.
Match status: 2019/20 La Liga - Matchweek 38
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid)
Few months into the season, they were at loggerheads with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona, and challenging for the league title. However, a little dip in form saw those two Spanish juggernauts fire themselves clear of the Royal.

Nonetheless, Sociedad were still sitting pretty in the top-four mix and never really looked like dropping off the radar. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 break turned out to be their undoing as they struggled to hit their high marks following the restart.

With a series of poor results ever since, the Whites and Blues have plummeted down the standings and are in danger of exiting the Europa League places altogether. 

Holding a two-point safety buffer in the top-seven mix, a draw against Atletico Madrid this weekend will be more than enough for the Royal to book a place in Europe after this final round of fixtures.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad Team News

Following a slow start to the campaign, it seemed Atletico Madrid would have to be content with a place outside of the top-four. However, with the league entering its final stretches, Los Rojiblancos rallied around to bring their stuttering season right back on track.

Sitting third on the standings, a whopping twelve points clear of fifth-placed Villarreal, Atleti’s top-four place is already assured. They headed into their last game against Getafe, knowing fully well that they will hold onto third place regardless of the result.

Playing without pressure all through the game, Los Rojiblancos easily dispatched their tricky opposition. A game bereft of gilt-edged chances was sprung into life in the second-period with goals from Llorente and Thomas securing a comfortable 2-0 win for Diego Simeone’s charges.

Meanwhile, Real Sociedad’s Europa League hopes have been hanging on a thin thread for quite some time now. Last time out, they played host to Champions League-bound outfit Sevilla, harboring faint hopes of actually salvaging something meaningful.

However, with the players rallying around, putting in a good shift in midfield and defense, the Royal held their superior opponents to a goalless draw at the Reale Arena. Though not the prettiest of games out there, Sociedad were very delighted with the final result.

For this fixture, we cannot really draw a line between these two sides. Atletico Madrid have been on a roll since the league restart, remaining unbeaten in each of their previous ten games on the bounce – three of which ended in draws.

Also, they are sporting the second-best post-lockdown record, only behind league champions Real Madrid. That said, these bunch have already secured Champions League football, and have basically nothing to play for here.

Meanwhile, Real Sociedad are on a poor run of form, but will be driven by their pursuit of Europa League football when they take on this outstanding Atletico Madrid side this weekend. Will passion topple quality? We’ll find out on Sunday night as these sides go head-to-head.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad Predictions

From all indications, an Atletico Madrid win seems in order. However, it is worth noting that this side have recorded the highest number of draws this term with a whopping 15 to their name. Surely, Simeone’s charges are not losing this game.

But a potential Sociedad masterclass could see Los Rojiblancos held to a draw here – a result enough to guarantee Alguacil’s men a place in next season’s edition of the Europa League. The safest punt will be a double chance backing Atletico Madrid for a narrow win.
