La Liga Match Preview: Real Sociedad vs. Real Madrid

 

Match Date: 05 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Estadio Anoeta

 

Despite the narrow defeat in El Clasico and an (unexpected) loss against Sevilla, Real Madrid is back to its winning ways as it kept Rayo Vallecano at bay and scored 5 amazing goals.

 

With the said victory, Real Madrid’s head honcho, Carlos Ancelotti remains confident that his side can still grab the coveted silverware for this season. Just recently, an array of impressive performance helped the Los Blancos outshine Atletico. However, its momentum was temporarily halted when they lost to Barcelona and Sevilla.

 

But today is a different story. The 5-0 thrashing is something that clubs should fear of. Not only did the match witness Real Madrid’s win, but also Gareth Bale’s scoring explosion. Bale had a slow start in Camp Nou. Yet, things are simply getting for him.  Perhaps, another thing that makes Ancelotti confident is the much awaited return of Sami Khedira.

 

The defensive midfielder is readily missed after being sidelined due to a torn knee ligament. His entry will be a great boost since the club is pitted against another strong club, Real Sociedad.

 

For La Real, the upcoming match is their chance not only to score more points and qualify in the Champions League. It also opens the door for them to avenge their 5-1 thrashing earlier this season.

 

Real Sociedad will most likely capitalize on their strong away form. They have been victorious in 9 of its 11 matches at Estadio Anoeta and have even kept a clean sheet in 5 of them.

 

Prediction: Real Madrid

Real Madrid remains a top online betting favorite in the match. A closer look into their last 6 matches shows that La Real has never won a single match. Real Madrid is pitted to win at a decent value of 2.26 while sharing the Asian handicap of 1-1.5 in 12BET.
