If you just look at the advanced metrics, there’s not much separating Real Madrid and Real Sociedad this season

Madrid’s goal difference is 23, Sociedad’s 21 Sociedad (xG) expected goals are 4272 while Madrid is 4190 Non-penalty expected goals against? Madrid is 18 years old85, Sociedad 1873 (All statistics courtesy of Understat)

The main difference between the two clubs, of course, is that one is a global superclub that ungodly spends a lot of money to attract the best and brightest young talent in the world; the other is a smaller Basque club that tries things out keep local

Madrid and Sociedad will meet at the Spanish giant’s Alfredo Di Stefano stadium on Monday, with a bet on the visitors

Real Madrid have only scored four goals in eight La Liga games since the beginning of 2021. Los Blancos have taken 19 points from eight games and are six points behind city rivals and La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid in this competition

A shock defeat against Levante on Jan 30 seemingly ended Real’s efforts to regain their La Liga crown fortunately, Atletico have only had five points from four games since then, while Real have won four straight wins, which is a seven-point gap that they have filled in the past four weeks / p>

Real have only allowed one goal in their last four La Liga games and conceded one goal in three straight games All this comes without captain Sergio Ramos, who last played for Madrid in January 14 in the Spanish Super Cup against Athletic Bilbao

Without Ramos, Raphael Varane and Nacho Fernandez did well, and that was mostly without Dani Carvajal on the right

Los Blancos scored a huge result in the Champions League on Wednesday, beating Italian favorites Atalanta 1-0 away. Madrid played this game against 10 men after Atalanta’s Remo Freuler in 17 Minute was sent off So we’re going to take it with a grain of salt

Madrid miss some key playmakers in attack, notably striker Karim Benzema and winger Eden Hazard It sounds like there is hope that Benzema could return for this one, although the focus for his return is on a matchup with Atletico next Sunday will lie

Especially without Benzema and Hazard, Madrid have trouble creating in attack, according to Understat, they only created 403 xG in the last three league games They only created 1.4, according to FBrefcom, against Atalanta despite the man advantage

At the end of November, Sociedad was at the top of the league with 23 points from 10 games with a three-point advantage over Atletico, although the Rojiblancos had two games in their hands

What followed was a disastrous run in eleven games that not only put an end to Sociedad’s title pursuits, but also their hopes for a place in the Champions League Sociedad won only one of their next eleven games, drew six and lost four after 23 points the first 10 games, Sociedad received nine out of the next 11

Now Sociedad enter this matchup seven points behind Seville for fourth place in the league, and Seville have one game in their hands

Sociedad’s last three home games have been much better They won all three by a combined 9-1 score, creating 832 xG in the process

On both sides of the 4-0 win against Alaves last weekend, Sociedad lost after a 4-0 defeat in the first leg and a goalless draw in Manchester United’s second game from the Europa League. Sociedad had the majority of the first leg Possession, but the Red Devils dominated the chance and won the xG fight 30-07

Given the domestic form and the creation of opportunities by Sociedad, as well as the lack of attack bite in Madrid, it is important here that the visitors get at least one point

I’m ready to have my heart broken by a late penalty shot to Madrid and Los Blancos scoring all three points, but Sociedad has played well lately, registering 15 xG in Thursday’s second leg against United

I will be supporting the Basque side to get a strong result in a difficult game, the line has shifted in favor of Sociedad in the past few days so I would suggest putting this on hold as soon as possible
