Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio Santiago Bernabeu when Real Madrid and Real Sociedad go head to head in the La Liga derby on Sunday evening. Los Blancos made a promising start to the season, with big-money signing Jude Bellingham already starting to pay off and, no doubt, the former Borussia Dortmund man will prove a handful for the opposition back-line. Even though influential winger Vinicius Junior remains in the recovery room, home win should be considered as Real Madrid are eager to get their revenge on Real Sociedad for a 2-0 loss in San Sebastian earlier this year.
Dani Ceballos is a major doubt, while both Eder Militao and Thibaut Courtois remain in the treatment room. The Basques, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 5-3 win over Granada, but they will have a mountain to climb in Sunday’s showdown. Both David Silva and Martin Merquelanz are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
