Atl.Madrid – Real Soiedad – Review for 24.10.2021
Atletico Madrid hosts Real Sociedad at the Wanda Metropolitano in a fixture from the 10th
round of La Liga. Let’s preview it in these football prediction betting tips today.
The reigning champions Atletico have some catching up to do. Los Colchoneros are
currently 4th in the La Liga standings with 17 points won – three points behind the leader
Real Sociedad – their next opponent. It’s important to remind you that they have a game in
hand, though – Diego Simeone’s team have played just 8 matches so far in the league.
In the previous round Atleti achieved their 5th win for the 2021/22 season. The champions
hosted Barcelona before the international break and comfortably won by 2-0. Thomas
Lemar and Luis Suarez scored against the Catalans.
Simeone’s team had a negative experience in their first game after the break, though –
Atletico faced Liverpool in the Champions League and got defeated by 2-3 at the Wanda
Metropolitano. Antoine Griezmann scored a brace for the Spanish team, but also got sent
off for a dangerous play. It was a disappointing thing to do from Griezmann, but these two
goals might secure him a starting spot against Real Sociedad. He seems to be improving
his form compared to what we have been watching so far.
Real Sociedad are having the honour of leading the La Liga standings. The Basques have
20 points won which puts them three points ahead of the second Real Madrid. La Real
have lost just one game since the beginning of the season – against Barcelona in the
beginning of the season. Since then Imanol Alguacil’s team is unbeaten in the league – six
wins and two draws.
Last weekend Real Sociedad achieved their 6th win for the season. They hosted Mallorca
at the Reale Arena and scored a very late goal in the 90th minute to secure the three
points. The 21-years old Julen Lobete scored the winner with his second goal for the
season. Lobete used an assist from Zubimendi and put the ball in the net.
La Real played the second half with 10 men on the pitch, though. Aihen Munoz got sent of
in the end of the first half. This means that Munoz won’t be playing in the next game
That’s the football prediction betting tips today for the La Liga fixture between Atletico
Madrid and Real Sociedad on Sunday. Atleti can move closer to the top, but La Rael are in
a great form. Let’s see what’s going to happen.
