Real Sociedad Preview – Can La Real return to form and keep their Champions League hopes alive?

Thursday’s 2-0 defeat away to Alaves was a huge setback for Real Sociedad and their bid to be playing Champions League football next season. It would also have stung considering it came against a local rival. The defeat leaves them two points behind Atletico Madrid in fourth, and level on points with Getafe. Villareal are also in the equation now with two wins since football returned.

It means La Real have taken just one point from their first two games. Considering they have come against teams in the bottom half of the table there’s no getting away from his disappointing it has been. And remains to be seen what damage it will do to their top four hopes.

The games only get harder for Imanol Alguacil’s men. It starts with this visit of title-chasing Real Madrid. They also face Getafe, Villareal, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla before the end of the season so there is a lot of work to do be done.

Real Sociedad’s home form has generally been very strong this season with eight wins and three draws from their 14 games. They will have to hope it sparks a return to form on Sunday.

Real Madrid Preview – Will Zidane’s men find crucial win and keep the pressure on Barcelona?

The enforced break due to Covid-19 was long for everybody but it would have been especially frustrating for Real Madrid who went into it on the back of a 2-1 defeat away to Real Betis. That gifted Barcelona the chance to return to the top of La Liga having only beaten their bitter rivals the week previous.

To their credit, however, Real have started very well in their first two games back. A 3-1 win over Eibar followed up with a 3-0 success against Valencia have kept the pressure on Barcelona. And the lead remains at just two points.
