Even though they trailed Barcelona for large parts of the previous season, Real Madrid still managed to clinch the La Liga title. Returning from the COVID-19 break, Los Blancos began firing on all cylinders to pip their archrivals Barca to the highly-coveted trophy.

They had a wonderful domestic campaign, garnering a whopping 87 points from 38 games to finish top of the pile. With a fresh season in sight, Real Madrid will be looking to gain maximum points from their opening fixture to begin on a winning note.

Real Sociedad vs Real Madrid Team News

Real Sociedad were exemplary last season, proving to smaller clubs that they can upset the odds to compete with the league’s big guns. A side expected to finish around mid-table, the Royal rose the bar lots higher to challenge for a Champions League place.

Beginning the campaign in amazing fashion, Alguacil’s men looked unstoppable for most parts of the season. In fact, they were once in the running for the title as they stood toe-to-toe with the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

However, a sharp decline in form towards the end of the season saw Sociedad fall off the pace in the top-four chase. In fact, they could only muster three victories from their last sixteen games of the previous campaign.

Finishing sixth on the log, Real Sociedad successfully booked a ticket to the Europa League, showing they are on an upward trajectory. They began the new season with an away game against Valladolid, one they were expected to win fairly easily.

Unfortunately, Alguacil’s men could not live up to pre-match expectations as they were held to a one-all draw by Sergio’s charges. Michel fired the hosts in front just inside 39 minutes to place his side on the right course to victory.

As the clock wound down, Alcaide turned savior for Sociedad as he curled a beauty into the bottom corner of the net to salvage a point. Now scheduled to take on Real Madrid, the Royal will have their work cut-out to secure a positive result here.

Real Madrid are clearly the best side in the country at the moment. They finished the previous campaign on a high, winning nine of their last ten league games to topple the pack. 

However, they were disappointing in Europe, losing to Manchester City in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Los Blancos are yet to make any major signing this summer.

The only arrival of note was Martin Odegaard who returned to the Bernabeu following his season-long loan spell at Real Sociedad. Nonetheless, Zidane still has a flurry of talented players to pick from – ones capable of defending the La Liga title this term.

Injured or Suspended Players

Real Sociedad: Alex Sola, Ander Guevara, Asier Illarramendi, Willian Jose and Joseba Zaldua
