Real Sociedad de Futbol - Real Madrid CF betting tip & odds comparison 04.12.2021

Betting Tip for matchday 16 of the 2021/2022 Primera División between Real Sociedad de Futbol and Real Madrid CF. The game will be played at Reale Arena (San Sebastián, Spain) on 04.12.2021 at 21:00.

Scorching hot Real Madrid will be looking to extend their winning streak to eight straight matches when they travel to San Sebastian to take on 3rd placed Real Sociedad on Saturday night in their first La Liga matchup of this season.

Real Madrid’s stunning run has seen them storm to the summit of the league, 7 points clear of both Atletico Madrid and Real Sociedad who are 2nd and 3rd respectively.

This game offers an early-season test for both teams’ title aspirations and we could be in for a treat here. Our football betting tips today in this preview will be sourced from Mr Xbet and Bet365 betting markets and prices.

REAL SOCIEDAD

Real Sociedad have started the season on the right footing and have even briefly flirted with the top spot for a couple of game weeks here and there. Their return of 29 points from 15 matches has them in third place and they will be out to try and close the deficit with the leaders when they come to town.

The Basque club have endured a couple of disappointing results in the last week or so. They lost back to back away games at Espanyol in the league last weekend which followed the loss in Monaco in the Europa League that has left them needing a win against PSV to guarantee passage to the 2nd round of the competition.

Inanol Alguacil’s side momentarily put aside the mounting storm behind them when they took to the field for their Copa Del Rey game on Wednesday which they swept aside lower division outfit, Panaderia, 4-0. They will look to build on that coming into this match

REAL MADRID

Real Madrid have affirmed their title favorites status with a solid seven-game winning streak, five in the league, including two significant ones over Sevilla and Athletic Bilbao and a couple from the Champions League. They lead the log with 36 points from their 15 matches, which is seven clear of their closest challengers, cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid, who have a game in hand.

They have also qualified to the round of 16 in the Champions League, although there is still the small matter of determining group D winners which will be determined when they face off with Inter next week.

Los Bloncos have been terrific away from home (6W, 1D, 1L). Carlo Ancelotti will be looking to keep this streak going ahead of the visit of Atletico to the Bernabeu on December 12.

REAL SOCIEDAD VS REAL MADRID PREDICTIONS

Real Sociedad have done pretty well to fill the void left by Barcelona going down a notch after Messi’s exit. They have hung in there with the Madrid based outfits as dark horses for the title. However, there is still a gulf between them and Real Madrid and we feel that will be apparent. Real have been quick off the blocks in their impressive winning streak and although the hot streak will end at some point, we do not think the Basque side will be the ones to do it. Los Bloncos have scored the opening goal in their last five straight away games, all of which they won. In our first La Liga prediction we are backing them to break the ice here @ 1.72 with Mr Xbet First Deposit Bonus.

With Real Madrid likely to dominate possession here, we fancy them to edge the 1X2 corners battle. They have won this battle in 4 of their last 5 H2H encounters and with the form with which they are coming into this game, it is difficult to imagine any other outcome. Bet365 Welcome Bonus have this option priced @ 1.83 and we are happy to take it for our final tip.
