Real Madrid Chases Elusive Title Away at Real SociedadPublished April 30, 2016 by Florin P
One last chance for Real Madrid to win a new Primera Division trophy (3:00 p.m UK Time).
Real Madrid is fighting a war on two fronts, but this is hardly a problem for a team that was on the verge of losing everything this season. The top priority is to qualify for the Champions League final but they now have a real shot at the title and they won’t squander it. Defeating Real Sociedad on the road is the top priority and no players will be rested for the second leg of the semifinals.
High-Scoring Run for Real Madrid
The multiple Spanish champions have the second-best defensive in La Liga, but their strikers failed to meet the high expectations in March. April however has been a great month so far and Real Madrid will try to end it on a positive note, by claiming all three points against Real Sociedad.
The offensive performance against Villarreal was inspiring and the fact that it came only a few days after the emphatic victory over 5-1 means a great deal for the fans. Over the last two weeks, Real Madrid scored an average of four goals per match and allowed a single goal, so they should be more than a match for Real Sociedad.
Real Sociedad Has Little to Fight For
A victory over Real Madrid won’t change anything for the home side, as the best case scenario is for them to finish in the first half. A victory over the champions would definitely please the fans, but the players need something more concrete to motivate them. Furthermore, their priority is to avoid a humiliating defeat, after seeing the fate of other Spanish teams that were pit against Madrid this month.
The home side will play without his most prolific striker, which is a long-term injury and will use a 4-5-1 starting formation. They are unlikely to survive a 90 minutes siege so odds of 3/5 available at bet365 Sports accurately reflect the difference between the two teams.
