Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad Preview

Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Wanda Metropolitano

Date: 27th October 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Atletico Madrid come into this game hurting after they suffered the heaviest defeat under the leadership of Diego Simeone on Wednesday, and their fans will be looking for a response in this game.

Atletico may have been hammered in Europe however they are still one of the strongest teams in their league.

They still maintain the best defencive record in the Spanish top flight as they have conceded just one goal in their last five domestic games, and it came just last weekend.

They can move above league leaders Barcelona after this game and a win will also see them open a 5 points gap on Real Madrid before their El Clasico match on Sunday.

Real Sociedad have been inconsistent for much of this season.

They impressively won at Villarreal and Athletic Bilbao, however, they haven’t won a home game.

Their fans should feel their away form gives them a chance to get a result in this game.

Real Sociedad have become one of the most exciting teams to watch in La Liga over the past few seasons, however, their new manager is moving them towards a more conservative approach and that seems to be causing a lack of consistency as they look to get to grips with the new tactics.

Atletico Madrid have won all 5 of their last 5 home matches against Real Sociedad.

Bookmakers make Atletico Madrid strong odds-on favourites to win at home while unsurprisingly goal markets point to a low-scoring tie.
