An In-Depth Look at the Match
Here are our top Real Sociedad v Real Madrid betting tips. Real Sociedad go into this game involved in a bunch finish and there’s just three points between them and Athletic Bilbao in seventh, although they could drop to as low as 13th if results went against them on the day. After 36 games played, we find three teams locked on 47 points, with Sociedad joined by Espanyol and Alaves. We’re hoping the desire to finish as high up the table as possible will ensure a big effort from each of the clubs involved. If nothing else, it should make for entertaining viewing.
The hosts have struggled for consistency of late, winning two, losing two and drawing one of their last five, but they did claim each of the last six points available to them and the players will be eager to complete the hat-trick. A hard-fought 2-1 over Getafe brought April to a close and they started May in similar fashion, beating Alaves 1-0 on the road. A Sanchez own-goal on 24 minutes was responsible for the latter. A third Sociedad win is 15/8 at William Hill.
Blancos Worth a Bet
Real Madrid will finish third this season and that will go down as a real disappointment to all connected to the club. They were able to salvage something from the campaign by convincing Zinedine Zidane to return as manager and all eyes will be on the Frenchman next season as he’s tasked with improving the La Liga club’s fortunes. We’re expecting a summer of change and are sure the gaffer would have been promised a hefty war chest to help him get things right.
Madrid have dominated the Champions League in recent times, but fans will want to see them make progress in Spain, starting by wrestling the La Liga title from Barcelona who have had things all their own way in recent years. Madrid go into this match with two wins, two draws and a defeat in their last five goes but Zidane will want to see an effort from his players, with many of them fighting for their futures. Will they secure an away win? Bookmakers certainly think so and have Madrid priced as favourites for this one, although there is value to be found. Back Real at Ladbrokes and you’ll secure a generous 13/10. That’s good enough to back as a super single for bigger stakes, or it can be used to boost your weekend multiples.
