Real Madrid enters Sunday's matchup with Real Sociedad looking to move to the top of the La Liga table with a victory. Due to a head-to-head advantage over Barcelona, Real Madrid will move into first place in La Liga with a win despite both clubs having the same amount of points. With six goals in its two games since the league resumed play, Real Madrid has looked clinical since play resumed following the coronavirus-caused hiatus. Real Madrid defeated Real Sociedad, which is still in contention for a potential fourth-place finish in La Liga, lost to Real Madrid in the reverse fixture last November. The attacking abilities of Real Sociedad's Mikel Oyarzabal will be critical in the contest if it hopes to knock off Real Madrid, snap a two-game winless streak and move closer to the top four of La Liga.
The battle atop the 2020 La Liga standings continues Sunday as Real Madrid takes on Real Sociedad. Madrid (18-8-3, 62 poinds) trails Barcelona by a few points atop the Spanish league. Meanwhile, Real Sociedad (14-5-10, 47 points)is sticking around in sixth place. Real Madrid is surging after a 3-0 win over Valencia that saw Karim Benzema continue his scoring frenzy while Marco Asensio scored in his first game back from injury. Real Madrid currently sits at 17-8-3 (59 points), five points behind Barcelona in the standings.
Sociedad had won four of its last five league games before the break, with its only setback a loss at Barcelona. "We didn't play our best today, and we hadn't played our best in the previous match either," Sociedad midfielder Igor Zubeldia said. Sociedad will next host Real Madrid, while Alavés visits Celta Vigo. Alavés, which hadn't won in three straight league matches, moved to 11th place. Real Madrid, led by forward Eden Hazard, faces Real Sociedad in a La Liga match at Reale Arena in San Sebastian, Spain, on Sunday, June 21, 2020 (6/21/20).
Valencia went a man down in the 89th after a straight red card was shown to South Korean midfielder Lee Kang-in for a foul on Madrid defender Sergio Ramos. Real Madrid have waited for more than three months to retake control of their own destiny and lead La Liga table. Now they've got a chance to earn that spot with a win against Real Sociedad after Barcelona's draw in Sevilla last Friday. Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Valverde, Vinicius, James, Benzema. Real Sociedad starting XI (TBC): Remiro, Golosabel, Elustondo, Normand, Monreal, Zubeldia, Odegaard, Merino, Portu, Oyarzabal, Isak.
