Real Madrid to get successive wins

Real Madrid are aiming to get their consecutive wins in La Liga, with a win against Real Sociedad, who are hopefuls for the top four finish. These two teams are actually in the top four in the league table currently. However, Sociedad is still not secured in their spot in the top four, which is why they want more wins. Madrid is currently sitting at the second of the league table with 68 points. They are 11 points away from stealing the top spot, but a top four finish is likely for the defending champions. Sociedad on the other hand is at the fourth with 58 points, but they need more wins. They are just with five points lead with the team at the fifth, so they need as many points to secure a win. Sociedad host this match on May 3, 2023, at 4:00 AM (GMT+8).

From the last 31 matches these two teams played, it was the visitors who holds a huge advantage. They won 21 of those 31 meetings, compared to the four wins of Real Sociedad, while the remaining six all ended in draw. However, the hosts is in a good momentum coming into this match. They are unbeaten in their last three matches in the contests, conceding just one goal. The visitors on the other hand is coming into this game with a not-so good record, winning just three of their last five matches. They suffered a defeat against Villareal and Girona, which threatened their top two spot. With that, they are now aiming to improve their game with a win here, to defend their title.

Real Madrid currently sits at the second of the league table, with 68 points across their name. Aside from sealing a spot in the Champions League, Madrid are also hoping to defend their titles in La Liga. However, their current results is almost the otherwise of what they are aiming for. With that, they want to start anew, and improve their game through this match. This is not impossible though, as they were able to step up this season. Madrid are confident in this match, as they were able to score a 4-2 victory against Almeria. With that, they are hoping to get the same result in this match. However, in order to do so, they need to address first their inconsistencies which is affecting their matches.

Ferland Mendy, David Alaba, and Luka Modric are all missing this game, due to their own injuries. Moreover, Vinicius Junior, and Federico Valverde are both unavailable as well, but it is because of the suspension their received.

Sociedad on the other hand is at the fourth of the league table with 58 points. However, they are still aiming for more wins as they are still unsure of their top four spot. Although they have five point lead with the team at the fifth, more point lead is still better. This is likely to happen though, as Sociedad have been fairly impressive this season. In fact, they are coming from a 2-0 win against Osasuna on their last match. This win gives them the confidence coming into this game. However, it will not be easy, as they are going up against the defending champions, who badly wants to defend their title. They should not lose hope though as they are a capable team, considering the talent their squad has.

Diego Rico, Sadiq Umar, and Martin Merquelanz, are all absent for this match. With the return of Mikel Oyarzabal, Alexander Sorloth, and Brais Mendez, expect a changes from their starting squad.
