Atletico Madrid and Real Sociedad will face each other in La Liga this week. The match at the Wanda Metropolitano promises to be an exiting game of football and could prove to be crucial in the race for the title. It is slated to kick off at 9pm UK time.

Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid are favourites to win the La Liga title this season. Diego Simeone’s side are at the top of the league standings at the moment with 77 points from 35 games. Atletico are two points clear Real Madrid with three more matches left for both sides, meaning that their destiny is in their own hands. Barcelona are second on 76 points, but Ronald Koeman’s side have played 36 games.

Simeone’s side have recovered their form in recent weeks. The goalless draw with Barcelona at Camp Nou this past weekend was a massive boost to their chances of winning the title this season, and so was Real Madrid’s failure to win against Sevilla at home.

Team News:

Thomas Lemar will miss the match for Atletico after suffering an ankle injury against Barcelona. Joao Felix is likely to start in his place alongside Luiz Suarez and Angel Correa.

Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad started the season strongly and appeared to be in the running for the La Liga title. However, things have not been as rosy for a while now. La Real will not finish in the top four and are actually in the running only for the Europa League places.

Imanol Alguacil find themselves fifth in the La Liga table at the moment with 56 points from 35 matches. Sociedad are two points ahead of sixth-placed Real Betis and four clear of Villarreal in seventh.

Team News:

Mikel Merino has been on the sidelines since March due to injury. Midfielder Carlos Fernandez and Aihen Munoz are doubtful.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Atletico Madrid have lost once and drawn twice in their last six matches.
  • Real Sociedad have lost twice and drawn once in their last six matches.
  • Atletico Madrid have scored 61 goals and conceded 22 goals in La Liga.
  • Real Sociedad have scored 53 goals and conceded 35 goals in La Liga.
  • Atletico Madrid beat Real Sociedad 2-0 away from home in December 2020.

Conclusion

Sociedad are not going to make it easy, but Atletico should get the job done and pick up all three points from the encounter. Los Rojiblancos know how to keep their nerves under pressure, and it is hard to see Simeone’s side slip up on Wednesday evening.
