Sliding Sociedad Looking Vulnerable
After back to back league defeats and eight games without a win across all competitions, faltering Real Sociedad look easy to oppose for this Tuesday’s big clash against Atletico Madrid at Anoeta.
Real Sociedad’s time in the spotlight at the top of La Liga appears to be over, as while they sit third and just three points behind this week’s opponents, Atleti have a huge three games in hand up their sleeve.
Txuri-Urdinak have slipped off the pace following five matches without a win in recent weeks, the last two of those ending in defeat despite Imanol Alguacil’s charges taking the lead in both.
Their surrender of a lead away to champions Barcelona last week is probably forgivable, their weekend collapse at 15th placed Levante less so.
It means Sociedad are under maximum pressure now to just hold their position amongst the European qualification spots and they could be gobbled up over the next fortnight or so, with the likes of Villarreal and Barca in close proximity.
After suffering their first domestic defeat of the campaign in the Madrid derby, Atletico bounced back to comfortably beat Elche on Saturday and Los Colchoneros have now won eight of their last nine La Liga starts.
They’re fancied to come out on top at Anoeta, however the recommendation is to take some insurance via the Draw No Bet market, due to Sociedad’s glut of draws in recent times.
Diego Simeone’s stars can definitely edge this one though to strengthen their position at the head of affairs and we’re predicting the visitors to do just enough via a 0-1 score line.
