Imanol Alguacil’s team form has picked up of late in La Liga, as the side from San Sebastian has won four of their last five matches.
Real Sociedad ended a three-game winless run on their travels in La Liga in the last away game by recording a 1-0 win at Valencia. Their recent away games in the Spanish top-flight have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last 11 matches.What am I backing?
This could be a highly entertaining encounter between two in-form teams. I can see this game being a relatively even contest, although I am backing Atletico to record a narrow victory.
