Real Madrid have made a lightning fast start to the new La Liga season, as they sit two points clear of the chasing pack. Real Sociedad will be the visitors this weekend, as they look to stretch their unbeaten run at the start of the season to five matches.
Before Betting On Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad
Real Madrid have started the new La Liga season in excellent form, and they already appear challenging to overlook in the race for the top-flight title this term. Los Blancos have won each of their opening four matches this term, and they already hold a two-point advantage at the top of the standings.
The Spanish giants opened last season with five straight victories, and they will be looking to achieve that feat in consecutive seasons for just the second time in their history. However, this has often been a fixture that Madrid have struggled in, as they have dropped points in three of their last five home matches against Sociedad.
The visitors are unbeaten in their opening four matches this term, but they will be looking to land just a second victory of the campaign this weekend. Sociedad boasts a fine recent record in this fixture, as they have gone two without defeat against Real Madrid. They have also kept clean sheets in each of their last two. They haven’t gone three without defeat against Real since May 2004.
Sociedad’s record in the Spanish top flight deserves enormous respect coming into this weekend, as they have lost just once in their last 13 La Liga fixtures. Over that period, they have recorded seven wins, and have been held to five draws. However, they haven’t gone five without a defeat at the start of a season since 2002-03.
