Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio Santiago Bernabeu when Real Madrid and Real Sociedad face each other in the La Liga derby. Los Blancos aim to melt Barcelona’s advantage in the standings, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s clash. A man to watch in the home team will be Karim Benzema, who scored his ninth goal of the season in a 2-0 win over Athletic Club, while both Tony Kroos and Luka Modric should be recalled to the starting line-up.
The likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, David Alaba, Lucas Vazques, Dani Carvajal, and Eden Hazard have been struggling with injuries of late. La Real, on the other hand, are eyeing their sixth consecutive league win. The Basques, though, were hammered by Real Madrid (1-4) in their last meeting at “Bernabeu”, and given los Blancos’ display in the triumph over Bilbao, home win should be considered. All Pacheco, Ali Cho, Gorosabel, Merino, and Guevara remain on the sidelines with injuries, speaking of the away side.

Striker Karim Benzema came through his youth club Bron Terraillon in Olympique Lyon were he went through all the youth teams.
On January 15, 2005 Benzema made his debut for the first team of Lyon that season but did not have much playing time. In the 2007-2008 season he was indeed a permanent fixture in the team and he got his break . He grew that season right into a crowd favorite and clubs like Arsenal, Juventus, Manchester United, Real Madrid and AC Milan showed interest in him.
