Why you should back Real Madrid
Los Blancos enter Saturday’s matchup having gone unbeaten at home in La Liga for over a year now. Real Madrid last lost a league match at home on Jan. 30, 2021 against Levante. The most decorated club in Spain and arguably all of Europe is also riding a six-match unbeaten streak in league play into this match.
Since losing the first leg of its UEFA Champions League Round of 16 match to PSG 1-0, Real Madrid has kept clean sheets in its last two games. Los Blancos shut out Alaves 3-0 at home on Feb. 19 and also beat Rayo Vallecano 1-0 away. Karim Benzema scored in each of those matches and the veteran striker is now up to 19 goals in 23 league matches this season.
Why you should back Real Sociedad
Real Sociedad is currently sixth in the La Liga table, which would earn it a spot in the Europa Conference League qualifiers next season. But it has a guaranteed spot in the UEFA Champions League in its sights as it sits just one point behind fourth-place Barcelona.
Real Sociedad is coming off a strong 2-0 win over Mallorca away on Wednesday with David Silva and Mikel Merino both scoring goals in the victory. Now eliminated from Europa League play, Real Sociedad can solely focus its efforts on rising in the La Liga standings. Back-to-back clean sheets following the loss to RB Leipzig shows that Imanol Alguacil’s squad has tightened up considerably.
