real-madrid vs real-sociedad Tip Reason:

Real Madrid are currently top of La Liga and are unbeaten in 21 games in all competitions. Real Sociedad lie in 8th place in La Liga and have won six of their last nine games in all competitions. Real Madrid have overcome Unionistas and Zaragoza in the cup so far and have scored seven goals in two games in this competition. In La Liga they have averaged 1.81 goals per game. Real Sociedad have beaten Becerril, Ceuta, Espanyol and Osasuna to reach this stage of the Copa del Rey, scoring 17 goals and conceding just one along the way. In the league they have averaged 1.68 goals per game. Can Real Madrid bring their league form to the cup? In recent weeks Real Madrid have been an efficient machine, picking up narrow wins over their opposition as they rise to the top of La Liga. There is some rotation expected from Zinedine Zidane but he could well call on Gareth Bale, after the Welshman missed the previous three games. Real Madrid are unbeaten in 21 games, winning 16 of those and they have been functional in recent weeks, if not explosive. They haven’t won a league game by more than one goal since the beginning of January and have picked up results through efficiency rather than dominating teams. We’re expecting a similar result from this match. The cup represents a real chance for Sociedad silverware; Can they pick up a win? Real Sociedad have been in decent form recently, winning six of their last nine games and they’ve enjoyed their cup run so far this season, although they have yet to face a real test. They’ve only conceded one goal in their four Copa del Rey games whilst their league form has been a little indifferent with recent losses against Leganes and Betis. Sociedad’s goal scoring record is almost as good as Real Madrid’s in the league this season with the visitors scoring 37 goals compared to Madrid’s 40 but the real difference between the two sides has been at the opposite end of the pitch. Sociedad have conceded 30 goals, an average of 1.36 goals per game, whilst the Madrid defence has only been breached 13 times, equating to just 0.59 goals per game. Which side will march onto the semi-finals? These two sides will both be keen to reach the next round with this representing a real chance for success for Sociedad whilst Real Madrid will be keen to keep their form going across all competitions. We think this should be a tight game however with Madrid missing some key players and Sociedad fully motivated and the 1.5 handicap afforded to Sociedad feels generous so we’re backing them to win with that handicap in place. Predicting a scoreline is a little more tricky with Real Madrid not firing on all cylinders and Sociedad capable of raising their game against better opposition. We think Madrid should have enough to pick up the win and advance into the next round however but we’re only backing them to pick up a slender 1-0 win.
