After enjoying a successful win against Osasuna last weekend, La Real are back in La Liga for another midweek clash at Reale Arena vs Real Madrid CF at 21:00 (GMT+1) on Tuesday May 2.
Real Sociedad Resume Winning Ways, Defeat Osasuna 2-0 and Retain 4th Place in La Liga Table Ahead of Real Madrid Showdown
Real Sociedad resumed their winning ways after defeating Osasuna 2-0 on Friday thanks to an own goal scored by goalkeeper Sergio Herrera (6′ O.G) and Takefusa Kubo’s late strike from El Sadar. These goals gave Sociedad [WLWDW] their 2-0 triumphant win at El Sadar Stadium. “This victory was very significant,” declared Imanol Alguacil in his post-match press conference following the win, while Sociedad retained fourth place on La Liga table with 58 points [17W, 7D & 8L]. White and Blues now seek consecutive victories over Real Madrid but face an uphill struggle as none of their last six meetings resulted in any victory [0W, 3D, 3L]. Alguacil deployed a 4–3–3 formation against Osasuna with Carlos Fernandez, Mohamed-Ali Cho and Ander Barrenetxea leading their attack – with Mikel Oyarzabal and Takefusa Kubo coming off the bench – but in their midweek matchup against Real Madrid it is expected they will switch into an attacking formation more similar to 4-1-2-3-2 with this duo leading it. Both Diego Rico Salguero and Sadiq Umar will not feature in Alguacil’s midweek matchup against Real Madrid.
