Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid Match Preview
Atletico Madrid travel to Donostia-San Sebastian in great shape after extending a streak of three confident wins across competitions since mid-February, where they beat Rayo Vallecano (0-1) and Villarreal (2-0) in La Liga as well as Juventus (2-0) in Champions League.
Atleti will now want to build on such records and keep up with Barcelona at the top of the table, now sitting seven points behind the pace-setters with a somewhat more lenient schedule to follow. They’ll be desperate to retain such consistency but Diego Simeone’s men don’t really have the boasting rights at Anoeta.
Real Sociedad have suffered just one loss in four head-to-head clashes here since 2014 and bagged three rather comfortable wins along the way, which should have them very motivated in search of revenge for a 2-0 loss suffered at Wanda Metropolitano earlier this term.
La Real have proven themselves a very tough nut to crack recently too and we’ve seen Imanol Alguacil’s men connect a ten-match unbeaten streak in 2019, where they beat sides such as Real Madrid (0-2), Athletic Bilbao (2-1), and held off Valencia (0-0) on the road for example. They will now want to keep it up and we expect a very strong challenge on Sunday.
We will thus stick our necks out to shut down Atletico Madrid once again as we stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils in a Draw priced at 23/10 with Paddy Power, which looks like more than a lively longshot at this point.
Indeed, both sides have been very solid defensively and this shapes to be another great tactical battle in the making. With that in mind, we will now also back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 4/7 with bet365 and rate it buying money for old rope.
