This is a decisive week at the Bernabeu with 2 key matches to maintain a shot at the Liga title. The first of them will take place tonight at the Di Stefano stadium, where Zidane’s men host the team from up north, San Sebastian. The clear objective is to add another three points before thinking about the derby.

Despite the rough circumstances, the team has won everything in February and wants to extend this impeccable balance at the start of this month. Madrid is looking for its sixth consecutive victory. It will be absolutely essential to main the defensive stability shown in the last four games, in which Courtois has not conceded a goal. Try your luck with online casino games and maybe you can make a big score.

“Real Sociedad is doing well, but we are playing at home and we want to continue accumulating points,” said Zidane at the pre-match press conference. Zidane has several players back from injury including Marcelo, Valverde, Odriozola and Rodrygo in a 21 player list. Casemiro, who has equaled his best scoring record in the league after his goal in the previous match, is back as well as Kroos, the team’s top assistant.

The offensive threat of Real Sociedad has two key names: Isak and Oyarzabal. The Swedish striker is on a roll, he has scored this past week and is the top scorer for his team with 12 goals. His teammate in attack is not far behind and he already has a dozen goals. The Basques, who are fifth and struggling to get into the Champions League, come to the Di Stefano after winning their last 3 league games against Cádiz, Getafe and Alaves.

Zidane’s men have accumulated five victories in the last five games and have shortened the point differential with Atlético de Madrid, who they will face next weekend in the derby at the Metropolitano Stadium.

Real Sociedad come to Madrid with three victories in the last three La Liga games and with the clear intention of surprising Real Madrid again at their stadium. The team doesn’t seem to have problems in the goal scoring department. They have scored more than 5 goals in the last 3 matches, so they are already on a somewhat positive trend.

Real Madrid is expected to win here, but they are not in the kind of dominating form that a win is a given. Real Sociedad may pull out the surprise, and even a tied game is a clear possibility. It would be a small miracle for Real Sociedad to win at Real Madrid. Although risky, such a result could bring solid profits thanks to the price of 4.40 in most of the online bookmakers.
