Really tough game here for Real Madrid, after playing a midweek Champions League game Real must now travel to Real Sociedad, possibly without top marksman Cristiano Ronaldo who looks likely to miss out through injury. But Real Madrid have lots of attacking talent with Benzema, Bale, Angel Di Maria, Modric, Isco all match winners on their day. Can Carlo Ancelotti's Real get a much needed away win in a really tough place to go?
Real Sociedad have only lost three games at home all season and have a great win against Barcelona under their belt a couple of weeks back. With Carlos Vela and Greizmann up front Real Sociedad have a talented duo who are a handful for any backline. Real Madrid's backline have been unusually soft in recent weeks and Marcelo being injured is another problem for a backline that has been ot of sorts recently.
I am taking the overs here, even without Ronaldo (suspected thigh injury) Real Madird have enough attacking talent in Benzema, Di Maria, Bale and Isco to cause any team trouble and with Griezmann and Vela up front Real Sociedad have two genuine attacking talents that will cause Real Madrid problems. Take the overs. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
