Real Sociedad were the form team in Spain after a 2-0 victory away to Rayo Vallecano on Saturday 21 January, with Alexander Sorloth and Ander Barrenetxea having scored first-half goals for a team who have undoubtedly been the surprise package in La Liga this season. Since winning 2-1 at Sevilla on 9 November, there has been nothing but wins for this team.

What has been particularly impressive is the way in which the team are defending and they have a fighting chance of getting a positive result in this clash. There’s little doubt that the experience of David Silva is helping the team and Sorloth’s scoring form has been particularly notable in the most recent months.

On the flip side, this is a big La Liga match and Real Madrid generally get things right on the grand stage. Since returning from injury, Karim Benzema is averaging a goal per game for the champions of Spain and Europe, with many football punters looking to put Los Merengues in their football accumulators and bump up the odds.

It could be a tight affair with defences largely on top and perhaps the best bet could be to back Real Madrid to secure a 1-0 or 2-0 victory as they look to cling on to the coat tails of Barcelona in what could be a battle right down to the wire as far as the Primera Liga title race is concerned. Under 2.5 Goals could be a decent shout.
