Real Sociedad is welcoming Atletico Madrid to Reale Arena in a derby match of round 15 in the Spanish LaLiga.

Real Sociedad is a good team, but they are in terrible form. Sociedad hasn’t won any of their last 8 games while losing their last 2 games in a row. During their last 3 games, Real Sociedad has scored 3 goals while conceding 5 goals, and nothing is going their way. Thanks to this bad streak, Real Sociedad has lost their top spot, and they are now in 3rd place with 26 points, 25 scored goals, and 10 conceded goals. In their last LaLiga game, Sociedad was playing against Levante on the road, and they have had 55% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. After leading in the 22nd minute, Sociedad has conceded a goal in the 28th minute, and one more goal in the 87th minute. Sociedad has lost this match 2-1 on the road. Oyarzabal has scored 7 goals for Sociedad so far this season, while Portu added 4 goals. Sangalli, Elustondo, Januzaj, and Silva are all injured, while plenty more other players are still questionable. Sociedad has started the season well, but they have since cooled off, and it might cost them a lot.

Atletico Madrid has lost only 1 of their last 13 games, and they are now on a 3-game winning streak during which they scored 6 goals and conceded only 1 goal. With these two wins, Atletico has taken over the top of the table with 29 points, 24 scored goals, and only 5 conceded goals. Overall, Atletico is the best team in LaLiga so far this season, and they deserve to be at the top. In their latest game, Atletico Madrid was playing against Elche at home, and they have had 48% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 88% of the correct passes. With 1 scored goal in the first half and 2 more in the second half, Atletico Madrid has deservedly won this match 3-1. Luis Suarez has been excellent so far, and he has scored 7 goals for Atletico, while Felix added 5 goals. Trippier and Correa have each added 4 assists. Gimenez and Herrera are the only two players that are still questionable for this game. I’ve said this before, and I will say it again, I love this Atletico team, and I really hope they can win the LaLiga title this season.
