Zinedine Zidane’s men were not on the winning end last time out and will hope to get things back to normal this weekend

Real Madrid host Basque outfit Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu in Saturday evening’s Spanish Primera Division clash.

All seemed to be going well for Los Blancos when they recorded massive back-to-back wins against Valencia and Deportivo La Coruna. However it was reality check as they were held by Levante last weekend.

The result sees them remain 19 points behind leaders Barcelona and are under threat of falling out of the top four if they don’t improve. LionsBet has priced them at (1.25) to get back to winning ways.

The White and Blues’ season hasn’t been going as expected as they find themselves in mid-table rather than around the European qualification places.

 They demolished Deportivo 5-0 last Friday but are underdogs in their trip to Spanish capital with the same betting firm at odds of (8.50).

Another stalemate would be disastrous for the under-fire Zinedine Zidane but its (6.75) to see that happen again.

Real Madrid have lost just one of their last 12 La Liga games against Eusebio Sacristan’s men and are (1.06) for a double chance.

The men in white have however won just two of their last six league games, conceding in all of them. Punters can back the reigning league champions not to keep a clean sheet on their turf at odds of (1.40).

Sociedad are winless in their last six top-flight games on the road. Zidane’s charges to win either half is available at (1.12) while both teams to score is valued at (1.45).

Cristiano Ronaldo has found the back of the net in his previous six Liga outings against the Basque outfit at the Bernabeu. He hasn’t been lethal in front of goal this term but LionsBet still tag him as the favourite to score first at (2.50) and anytime at odds of (1.18).

Xabi Prieto has scored nine top-flight goals against Real Madrid and the veteran midfielder is quoted at (3.35) to bag his 10th against them anytime.
