Date and time: Sunday September 21, 8pm
Location: Estadio Anoeta
Real Madrid kick off their La Liga title defence with a very tough game at Real Sociedad on Sunday night. With Barcelona not in action, it is a great chance to lay down a marker at an early stage of the season.
Estadio Anoeta is historically a very tough place to visit and Zinedine Zidane’s men will have their work cut out to get a victory against a team who will be looking to qualify for the Champions League this season. But we think it will be a good start here, with plenty of goals.
Why do we think Real Madrid will come out on top?
Real have opened their La Liga campaign with victory every year since 2015, including once winning at Estadio Anoeta. They traditionally set a good early pace, and we see no reason why that can’t continue here. Both teams to score is certainly a good market to analyse here, too.
Real have scored twice in four of their last six games, while only keeping two clean sheets. That is why our primary betting tip for this game is Real Madrid to win with BTTS at 12/5 with Bet365.
What other markets are worth a look?
Real Madrid to score two goals or more looks likely, their recent record in front of goal. You can get that at 12/5 with Bet365.
Karim Benzema to score first at 3/1 with Be365 is something that has caught our eye. This one is going to go the way of the visitors.
