(UPDATE: The match ended 1-3 with Real Sociedad bending to Real Madrid)
Los Blancos face a daunting trip to the Anoeta to face second-placed Real Sociedad, 7 points behind Barcelona. Real Madrid is without Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo, Karim Benzema, and Toni Kroos, which makes the task for Zinedine Zidane’s side that much harder.
Geth Bale has been superb at the Anoeta in recent seasons and will hope that he can reverse the downward trend of his Madrid career and get rid of the boo-boys.
However, Eusebio Sacristan’s side has been free-scoring in the start to the season and Madrid will have to be tight at the back so as to not hand Barcelona a 7 point advantage this early in the season.
