La Liga / Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid – Matches between these two teams are always interesting, although Atletico has gained an advantage over Real Sociedad at the beginning of the season. The Madrilenians won all three matches played so far and are the only team with perfect score in La Liga, with Real Sociedad drew, won and lost in the previous round. Atletico won both their head-to-head played last season by 2-0.
Game Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid begins 14.09.2019 at 18:30 CET
Real Sociedad plays variably so far and it started the season with a away draw in Valencia, which was a good result, although they were also quite lucky. The home team had a lead and missed a penalty and then deep in the injury time Real Sociedad manages to equalise from the penalty kick. In the second round Real Sociedad defeated Mallorca away 1-0 thanks to Odegaard who scored in the finish of match. The first defeat was especially painful since their great Basque rival Athletic defeated them in Bilbao in the previous round. They started the match rather poorly and after half an hour they were trailing behind for two goals after which the result didn’t change. The latest reinforcement Monreal should play now from the first minute, while Illarramendi is injured.
Probable lineups Real Sociedad: Moya – Zaldua, Le Normand, D. Llorente, Monreal – Zubeldia, Odegaard, Merino – Januzaj, William Jose, Oyarzabal
Atletico enjoys a perfect start to the season and no other La Liga team can boast with all three wins. Atletico’s rivals weren't too strong and Atletico won in its own way. In first two matches it did so by its favourite result 1-0. They firstly defeated Getafe at home by that result and then Leganes away. In the previous round Atletico finally played a goal fest with Eibear, which didn’t go without problems. They were trailing behind for two goals and it is clear how close they were to lose. They somehow equalised the result and then reservist Thomas scored in the finish of match for 3-2 victory. He is injured and will not play now, just like Morata, while Savic returns at the stopper position.
Probable lineups Atletico Madrid: Oblak – Trippier, Gimenez, Savic, Lodi – M. Llorente, Saul Niguez, Koke, Lemar – J. Felix, D. Costa
Betting Pick: Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid
Real Sociedad is always ready to surprise a great team, especially when they play at home. The guests won all matches played so far but they do make mistakes and Real Sociedad has chance to do something. Perhaps the match could be an efficient one.
