Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Atletico Madrid will look to extend their brilliant winning run to four games when they take on Real Sociedad in the La Liga round 9. Los Rojiblancos have been scoring goals for fun of late and we are positive that they will adopt yet another attack-minded approach against La Real. Angel Correa should keep his place in the starting XI following his excellent performance in a come-from-behind win over Cadiz despite the fact that Alvaro Morata is back from suspension. All Jose Gimenez, Stefan Savic, Memphis Depay, Thomas Lemar, and Caglar Soyuncu are out of contention with injuries.
Real Sociedad, on the other hand, rolled over Athletic Bilbao in the Basque Derby at the weekend, while beating Salzburg 2-0 in the Champions League. Given the number of absentees in the home team, especially at the back, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Alvaro Odriozola and Kieran Tierney have joined David Silva and Martin Merquelanz in La Real's recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Antoine Griezmann):
Anthony Griezmann is a French forward born on 21st March 1991 in Macon, and he is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most exciting footballers at the moment. The pacey striker started showing his potential shortly after coming through Real Sociedad’s youth academy and he went on to score 46 goals in 179 league appearances for La Real. Excellent displays in Spanish la Liga saw him become a target for a number of top clubs, but he eventually choose to sign for Atletico Madrid, and that proved to be a very good decision.
Griezmann continued the rich vein of form at Vicente Calderon, scoring some important goals as los Colchoneros enjoyed domestic and European success, while also becoming a key member of the France national team.
Playing as a winger or second striker, Griezmann possesses impressive technical skills, he is a strong finisher and still finds time to work hard for his side, so no wonder he is widely regarded as one of the leading forwards on the continent. He won the U19 European Championship with France and is tipped to lead Les Bleus to glory on senior level as well.
