Sociedad – Atletico Madrid Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 12:30

Having come through the youth categories of the Spanish national team, Oyarzabal also has a senior cap next to his name. Oyarzabals positioning and movement are work of a tactical genius, whereas it is his nous to find details to exploit that best define him as a player. It was in 2016 that he also represented the Basque region, scoring on his debut to cap a 3-1 win over Tunisia.

Atleti have been rather convincing through their pre-season and theyve kicked off the new campaign with narrow wins over Getafe (1-0) and Leganes (0-1), building on the success with a more thrilling 3-2 win over Eibar just ahead of the break. Theyve felt confident as in-form Joao Felix led the attacking line and will now surely want another such display here.

Txuri-Urdinak held Valencia to a 1-1 draw and beat Mallorca (0-1) in their first two outings but failed to cause a similar upset at Athletic Bilbao more recently, where early goals from Inaki Williams and Raul Garcia proved enough for the rivals to bag a comfortable win. It feels theyll now need more and its questionable whether Imanol Alguacils are up to the task.

Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record intact in the Spanish top flight and it is more than obvious that Antoine Griezmann is not going to be sorely missed in the 2019/2020 season. La Real have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season and it is no surprise they are seen as underdogs in Saturdays football match against Atletico Madrid. Following a 1-0 win over Mallorca at Iberostar Stadium, Real Sociedad suffered a heartbreaking 2-0 loss to Athletic Club in the Basque derby.

Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid Preview

The hosts were handed their first defeat of their campaign prior to the international break by Athletic Bilbao with their foes slotting two unanswered goals past them by the end of the ninety minutes. Real Sociedad have been on the road for the past three weeks and have not been able to ensure a consistent winning run of form so far.

A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be summer signing Joao Felix, who is widely expected to shine in the new La Liga campaign. The capital club showed character in a come-from-behind win over Eibar and seeing that the Basques have yet to find their best form, we believe that away win should be considered.

Now they will be looking forward to maintain the winning streak against Real Sociedad as well. Diego Simeone's men thrashed Getafe, Leganes and Eibar in their opening three fixtures of the season. On the other hand, Atletico Madrid are in red hot form this season. They have won three matches on the trot to climb to the top of the La Liga table.

As it was already said, they are in a great form, looking to continue their run and battle for the trophy as always. He is playing fantastically and he can really make a difference in a few minutes. Their best move this offseason was finishing a transfer of Joao Felix from Benfica. So if we look at the way he is playing now, that 126 million Euros transfer fee could look like a good investment.

After sharing points with Valencia in the opening fixture, they got all three points against RCD Mallorca, with a lone goal by Martin Odegaard. Real Sociedad were going through a bad phase before the International break. After three matches, Real Sociedad are on the 13th position in the League table with just 4 points. However, in the Basque Derby, they were beaten 2-0 by Athletic Bilbao.

Head to Head

The early signs are very promising indeed with Joao Felix catching the eye in attack. Atleti are likely to keep changes to a minimum as this new-look side looks to build some continuity which can only really come by minutes on the pitch. Hes likely to be partnered by Diego Costa here with Alvaro Morata still struggling with a knock.

They have some injured players. As it was already said, Real Sociedad is an okay host. We see a small number of goals on their home games, with the last 4 consecutive matches producing under 2.5. Rodrigues, Sagnan, and Muguruza will not suit up for this game. He scored his first La Liga goal last time, with his first La Liga shot on target. They are a good team as a home side, and with their newest signing Martin Odegaard, they hope that things can continue. Their defense is looking good as of now, but their first real threat will be here, with Atl Madrid being one of the best away teams in La Liga.

Atleti make huge appeal at odds against to take the points, even though its likely to be a tight affair as most of Madrids away fixtures tend to pan out. Sociedad have conceded just one goal in their last six home La Liga matches, so were opting for a 0-1 correct score in favour of Simeones side alongside our main match bet.
