Real Sociedad

  • Atletico have won both league matches in which neither Sergio Aguero nor Diego Forlan started this season. 
  • The mattress makers have scored almost 50 per cent of their goals in last 15 minutes of their games. 
  • Los Colchoneros are just three points off European spots. In the words of defender Diego Godin: “The match against the Basque side is fundamental to our aspirations”. 
  • In their last 4 games, Atletico have not lost to the Basque side. 
  • Real Sociedad are on a run of four straight defeats for the second time this season in the league. Defeat in this match would result in their longest losing streak of the campaign.
  •  Lasarte's side have scored only once in their last five away matches in the league and have lost each of these five games. 
  • ‘La Real’ are just six points from the relegation zone after taking just one point from last six matches 

November 22, 2010: Real Sociedad 2-4 Atletico Madrid

The inimitable strike duo of Sergio Aguero and Diego Forlan had helped Atletico overcome a half-time deficit to win 4-2 at Real Sociedad. The visitors had trailed to Joseba Llorente's 12th-minute effort but a late flurry of goals, with Forlan levelling with 19 minutes to go and two late Aguero efforts, turned the match on its head.
