Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Real Sociedad were on the verge of holding Atletico Madrid to a 1-1 draw at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano at the weekend, but los Rojiblancos eventually scored a late winner and picked up all three points from the match. The Basque outfit have yet to recover from a shocking loss to Lleida Esportiu in Copa del Rey, but Sunday’s football match against relegation-threated Malaga could be the turning point for the hosts. Los Boquerones played out a goalless draw with Levante in their last league fixture and, as a result, they remained in bottom three in the La Liga standings. The Andalusian side have been struggling on the travels this term and despite the fact that Real Sociedad do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment, home win should be considered. Willian Jose, who found the net in the 2-1 loss to Atletico Madrid, will be the man to watch in the home team.
