Real Madrid is set to pursue their fifth consecutive victory in the 2023-24 La Liga season as they host Real Sociedad at Bernabeu this Sunday evening.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team currently leads the league with a perfect 12 points. On the other hand, Real Sociedad, who haven’t faced a defeat yet this season, sits in the eighth position with six points from their first four matches.
Real Madrid might not have delivered dazzling performances at the beginning of the season, but their efficiency is undeniable with consecutive victories against Athletic Bilbao, Almeria, Celta Vigo, and Getafe. This has placed them at the zenith of the table, a narrow two-point gap above Girona in the second spot.
Jude Bellingham has emerged as the standout player, netting five times in just four matches. Notably, he scored a decisive goal against Getafe just before the international hiatus.
The primary goal for Los Blancos this season is reclaiming the La Liga crown from Barcelona. They are also geared up to kick off their Champions League journey next week, starting with Union Berlin at home. Moreover, the excitement builds for the anticipated Madrid derby against Atletico Madrid at the stunning Wanda Metropolitano stadium, scheduled for September 24.
Although the international break might have disrupted Real Madrid’s rhythm, they’re eager to prove their unbroken momentum. Historically, their track record against Real Sociedad has been uneven, with only two wins in their recent six La Liga encounters. They lost 2-0 in their last clash in May, while Real Sociedad secured a draw at Bernabeu and even celebrated a 2-0 victory in the 2018-19 season.
On the other hand, Imanol Alguacil’s Real Sociedad remains undefeated this term, accumulating six points from four games, landing them in the eighth spot. Their August saw them drawing against Girona, Celta Vigo, and Las Palmas. However, they clinched their initial victory against Granada with a thrilling 5-3 scoreline, although they had to fend off a late surge from the visitors.
Finishing fourth in the previous La Liga season, Real Sociedad is also set to embark on their Champions League adventure, with a face-off against Inter Milan lined up for their group’s inaugural match.

Real Madrid’s roster has been marred by injuries early this season, with notable players like Eder Militao, Thibaut Courtois, Arda Guler, and Vinicius Junior sidelined.
While Ferland Mendy and Dani Ceballos were also absent during the initial weeks, they have rejoined full training. Ceballos is poised to be back in the lineup for the upcoming match, while Mendy might be reserved, possibly for the European game against Union Berlin.
With Vinicius’s recent setback, it’s anticipated that Joselu will pair up with Rodrygo in the forward positions. Jude Bellingham is expected to position himself ahead of the midfield. The midfield may not see the inclusion of stalwarts like Luka Modric or Toni Kroos. On the defense, Fran Garcia is likely to earn another nod as the starting left-back.
On the other side, Real Sociedad will be without Martin Merquelanz and Andre Silva when they face Ancelotti’s squad in Madrid.
Though Umar Sadiq has a minor injury concern, he’s predicted to be fit for the match. Mikel Oyarzabal might take up the central forward role, as was seen against Granada in their previous game.
Real Sociedad’s head coach, Alguacil, might opt for consistency by fielding the same starting XI from their pre-international break match. Eyes will be on Takefusa Kubo, especially after his stellar performance against Granada, as he prepares to challenge his ex-team.
