Both Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid will be looking to move into the top 4, as the latter pays a visit to the Reale Arena this Saturday in the ongoing season of the La Liga.
Real Sociedad registered it’s second victory of the season, when it beat Elche in it’s own backyard last weekend. Brais Mendez scored the only goal of the match, as the visitors bounced back from a 4-1 defeat against Barcelona in the game before that. Playing without their star forward Alexander Isak didn’t seem to make much of a difference to Imanol Alguacil’s team, as they start their Europa League campaign with a journey to Manchester next week.
Atletico Madrid was unable to defend its title last season and has had a lukewarm start to the current season too. After starting it’s campaign with a 3-0 win over Getafe, Atletico was overpowered by Villarreal in the second match of the season. They have however gone back to winning ways, beating Valencia 1-0 in the latest outing. Antoine Griezmann scored the only goal of the match, taking his team to the 6th spot on the points table. With a Champions League fixture against Porto coming up, Diego Simeone will have the unenviable job of shuffling his players without compromising on the winning ability of his unit.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid La Liga 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the Reale Arena, San Sebastian, on 3rd September 2022.
Except for the long-term absentees, which include Carlos Fernandez, Martin Merquelanz, Mikel Oyarzabal, and Diego Rico, Real Sociedad has no fresh injury concerns, and Alguacil is likely to go ahead with the same combination that handed him a victory in the last game.
As for the visitors, Thomas Lemar and Griezmann may be rested, while Angel Correa, Yannick Carrasco, Matheus Cunha, Joao Felix, and Alvaro Morata may find themselves in the starting eleven. Stefan Savic, Nahuel Molina, and Sergio Reguilon are likely to miss this game due to injuries.
Given the recent outcomes of the games between the two clubs, we think that the visitors hold an edge here.
Bet on an Atletico win.
4 of the last 5 head to head matches in the top flight have seen goals scored at both ends of the field. Real Sociedad has scored in each of its 3 opening matches, while Atletico has managed to find the back of the net in its last 5 away games, including the friendlies. We are therefore backing a BTTS bet.
Each of the last 3 head to head games between the two clubs has seen a score in excess of 2.5. Real Sociedad has conceded at least 2 goals in each of its last 4 top-flight matches against Atletico. We are therefore predicting at least 3 goals being scored in this match.
