Real Madrid will clash heads with Real Sociedad at the Reale Arena on Saturday night as they try to collect all three points on their travels. Los Blancos managed to grind out a 1-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao in midweek which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this league clash versus Imanol Alguacil’s men.
Carlo Ancelotti could opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a couple of changes to his starting XI for this game. Both Dani Carvajal and Eduardo Camavinga might play from the start while Lucas Vazquez and Luka Modric drop to the bench.
4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Real Sociedad
Thibaut Courtois will operate in between the sticks for Los Blancos after securing an impressive clean sheet versus Bilbao in his last league appearance. David Alaba will resume his centre-back partnership with Eder Militao at the centre of Real Madrid’s backline as they try to earn a clean sheet during the 90 minutes.
Daniel Carvajal will function at right-back while Ferland Mendy hopes to impress on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will be given the license to get forward and join in on the attack so that they can create enough chances for Los Blancos to emerge victorious this weekend.
Nacho will provide cover for the defensive positions on Ancelotti’s bench.
The visiting side’s midfield could be comprised of Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Eduardo Camavinga as Ancelotti looks to rest Luka Modric on the bench. Both Casemiro and Eduardo Camavinga are one yellow card away from a suspension, so they would have to be careful not to pick up a caution this weekend.
Federico Valverde will be available for selection on the bench and could come on to influence the game in the second 45 minutes if needed.
Vinicius Junior will once again get the nod to start on the left flank while Marco Asensio looks to impress as the right-sided wide player. Karim Benzema will lead the charge for Los Blancos up top after he scored the only goal of the game versus Bilbao in midweek. We can expect the Frenchman to be hungry for more goals this Saturday night.
Rodrygo will be a part of Madrid’s bench as he waits for his chance to shine as a late-game substitute if required.
