Our football match prediction:
Atletico Madrid will be looking to build on a thrilling 5-0 win over Levante when they face Real Sociedad at their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. Los Rojiblancos do not to give up on their title dream and we predict they will go all guns blazing at La Real when the two teams face each other on Matchday 14. Diego Simeone’s troops are eight points behind league leaders Barcelona in the La Liga standings, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the capital club. The Basque outfit, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Las Palmas at the weekend and it seems as if playing on three fronts is the team’s biggest problem at the moment. Real Sociedad are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but their away record is anything but good and, taking everything into account, we are positive that los Rojiblancos will pick up all three points from the match.
