Real Madrid Preview – Can Real extend their excellent form at home to take another step towards title?

Carlo Ancelotti never won a La Liga title in his first spell as head coach of Real Madrid but it is looking increasingly likely he is going to achieve that this time around. Sevilla’s goalless draw on Friday means the current leaders can go eight points clear with 11 games to go. There would be still work to do but it would be a big step towards regaining the title they loss to city rivals Atletico last season.

It would also give them a big boost heading into the return leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at home to PSG in midweek. Real currently trail 1-0 and were very much second best in Paris so know they need to improve to keep their European dream alive.

2-0 Correct Score
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Thursday 3 March)
Domestically, there will be great confidence that Ancelotti’s men can get the win they need here. Their home record has been tremendous not only this season but for a sustained period. They are unbeaten in their last 23 home match in the league with their last defeat coming over a year ago against Levante. They’ve won 17 of the games in that run.
Real also have the best defensive home record in the league conceding only eight goals in 13 games. No team has scored more goals at home or in total, either, further emphasising their domestic dominance.

Real Sociedad Preview – Are Sociedad capable of springing a surprise to boost their hopes of a top four finish?

La Real’s season has been something of a mixed bag. Their start was very encouraging with only one defeat in their first 14 games and they were dreaming of what might be. Towards the end of 2021 the wheels started to come off somewhat and they only picked up one win in their next nine. A top four finish and Champions League football appeared to be drifting away from them rapidly.

The last month or so has began to get them hoping again, though. They come into this game with three wins in their last four to sit on the fringes of the top four.

Their three wins have came in games you would expect them to beat with all the teams currently in the bottom three. But it is a spark they hope to take on into their remaining matches. It looks very much like being a battle between themselves and four others for two positions – only a couple of points separate them and third place Real Betis with Villareal sitting a couple of points below La Real.

There’s no getting away from home important Mikel Oyarzabal is for this team. The Spanish internationalist is well on course to hit double figures in La Liga for the fifth straight season and could well break his best tally which is 13 (currently on eight).


Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad Betting Advice

Sevilla’s slip has removed some of the pressure in one way for Real heading into this one but it brings with it an expectation that they’ll extend their lead. The visitor’s know that the race for the top four is so congested that any dropped points will leave them up against it.

The leaders were 2-0 winners when the teams met earlier in the season but Real Sociedad do have a decent record on the road against Real Madrid. They’ve lost just one of their last four visits.



Key Facts –  Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad Betting Tip

  • Real are looking to stretch their unbeaten home run in La Liga to 24 matches
