Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad
WED 12 MAY 2021 – KO 21:00
BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Wednesday night, Atletico Madrid host Real Sociedad at the Wanda Metropolitano, in what could be a massive game in both the race for the Spanish title and European qualification in La Liga.
Diego Simeone’s team are currently top of the table, two points clear of Real Madrid and Real Madrid in second and third place respectably. The home team are still in pole position in the title race with just three league matches remaining.
A 0-0 goalless draw at title rivals Barcelona last time out continued Atletico’s recent inconsistent form in the Spanish top-flight. Los Rojiblancos have won three of their last seven matches in La Liga.
However, Simeone’s team has a strong recent defensive record in the league, as they have now kept clean sheets in four of their last five La Liga outings.
La Real are in the thick of the race for the Europa League spots for next season. Imanol Alguacil’s team are currently fifth-place in La Liga, five points clear of seventh place Real Betis, although the Andalusians do have a game in hand.
The team from San Sebastian have been in decent league form of late, as they have won three of their last four outings. Last time out, they recorded a 2-0 win over Elche, which means the visitors last three league matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
Real Sociedad have been highly inconsistent on their travels in the Spanish top-flight of late, winning just two of their last eight away games in La Liga.
Atletico Madrid have no reported injuries heading into this clash.
Real Sociedad head into this clash without forward Carlos Fernandez and attacking midfielder Luca Sangalli.
