Real Madrid and Real Sociedad face at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, in a match for the 17th round of the Primera División. The head‑to‑head history at this stadium, favours the home team, since in the last 5 head‑to‑heads they won 5. Accordingly, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Primera División, on 31‑01‑2015, Real Madrid won by (4‑1). J. Rodríguez (3' ), Sergio Ramos (37' ) and K. Benzema (52' and 76' ) scored for Real Madrid and Aritz Elustondo (1' ) for Real Sociedad. Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

Analysis of Real Madrid

The home team is currently in the 3rd position of the league, with 33 points won, after 10 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Villarreal, by (1‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Rayo Vallecano, by (10‑2). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 25 goals scored and 14 conceded; against 11 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 43 goals scored and 9 conceded. In the last 8 home league matches Real Madrid has a record of 6 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, so they have won 19 points out of 24 possible. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, since 6 of the last 8 for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. They have been able to score first and have done so in 12 of the last 16 matches for the Primera División, they have reached half‑time in advantage in 10 of those 12 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 10 of them.

Real Madrid comes to this match motivated by a large 10-2 win in a home match against Rayo Vallecano: Danilo, Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema scored the goals. The main absences of the Merengues are Carvajal and Varane, both injured. The home team has no problems creating goal opportunities, since they have many fantastic players that can decide matches on their own at any moment. However, they also have a few defensive problems.

Confirmed Lineup: K. Navas, Pepe, Danilo, Nacho, Marcelo, L. Modrić, T. Kroos, J. Rodríguez, K. Benzema, G. Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Coach: Luis Miguel Ramis.

Analysis of Real Sociedad

The away team is currently in the 14th position of the league, with 16 points won, after 4 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Getafe, by (1‑1). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Villarreal, by (0‑2). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 16 goals scored and 17 conceded; against 3 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses at their stadium, with 14 goals scored and 20 conceded. In the last 8 away league matches Real Sociedad has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 8 points out of 24 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 16 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 10 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 4 of their 10 goals between minutes (0'‑15').

The away team comes to this match after a 0-2 home loss against Villarreal. Real Sociedad is usually capable of maintaining ball possession, using short passes to avoid losing the ball and allowing counterattacks. They prefer using the leaft wing to attack, making good use of the offensive support of winger Yuri. The player responsible for organizing the team’s offensive play is Xabi Prieto. Zurutuza and Raúl Navas are recovering from injuries and will be unavailable in this match.

Confirmed Lineup: G. Rulli, Carlos Martínez, Aritz Elustondo, Íñigo Martínez, Yuri, Xabi Prieto, Canales, Illarramendi, Bergara, Jonathas, Agirretxe.
Coach: Eusebio Sacristán.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that both teams will score. They are both strong offensively and present a few defensive problems, so we expect an open match with goal opportunities for both teams.
