Benzema, Hazard And Vazquez To Start | 4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup Vs Real Sociedad

Real Madrid will entertain Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Saturday hoping to secure a win in front of their home supporters. The Galacticos will come into this contest at the back of a 4-0 victory over Eibar before the international break. Los Blancos have scored ten goals in their last two league matches, a stat which would strike fear at the hearts of the Sociedad defenders this weekend. However, La Real could make life tough for the home side if they can defend well and be a threat on the counter.

Zinedine Zidane is expected to opt for a 4-3-3 formation and might be inclined to name an unchanged team for this league encounter at Madrid.

4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Real Sociedad


Thibaut Courtois will retain his place in goal for the Galacticos after securing five clean sheets in a row across multiple competitions. Raphael Varane will once again team up with Sergio Ramos at the centre of the Madrid backline.

Dani Carvajal should get the nod to start at right-back while Ferland Mendy will fill in on the other side as the left-back. Zidane has managed to turn things around after a difficult start to this campaign. The Galacticos’ defensive form was excellent before the international break so they would hope to keep up the same level of performance versus Sociedad this weekend.


Los Blancos could set-up with a midfield three of Federico Valverde, Casemiro and Luka Modric for this league encounter against Imanol Alguacil’s men. The talented trio will focus on dictating play from midfield to create some decent chances for the front players.

Toni Kroos might have to be content with a spot on Zidane’s bench. However, James Rodriguez is definitely out of this game due to a knee injury.


Zidane is expected to go with the front three of Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema and Lucas Vazquez up top. Benzema managed to score a brace versus Eibar in his last league start so his confidence will be sky-high heading into this clash at the Spanish capital.

Brahim Diaz, Isco, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo will all be available on the Real Madrid bench. They are likely to be used as impact substitutes if Zidane decided to call upon their services.
