Stadium: Cívitas Metropolitano (Madrid)
Referee: Juan Luis Pulido
One of the central matches of the 37th round of the Spanish top flight will be the encounter between Atlético de Madrid and Real Sociedad. The teams are neighbours in the standings, but it is unlikely that they are in competition. It should be noted that Atletico will certainly represent Spain in the Champions League next season. While RS are not yet guaranteed a place in the Champions League.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
In the last round, Atlético failed to beat Spanish side Espanyol 3:3. Before that, Madrid had won three out of four, losing away to Elche. As you can see, Atletico have problems, and in matches against teams from the relegation zone, but against the midfield and stronger teams, they have been quite successful. Before starting the 37th round, Atletico is in third place, one point behind Real Madrid. We believe they will try to finish the season above their geographical neighbor. It should be noted that Atletico will not drop below fourth place. Atletico's home statistics are third in the division, +12=3-3, 39:14 goal difference.
Real Sociedad has a seven-match unbeaten streak, with five wins and two draws in that period. In the last two games, the Basques have won twice, against Barcelona away and Almeria on home soil. Before the start of the 37th round, the Basques are 4th, with an asset of 68 points and a five-point lead over Villarreal. To be guaranteed to play in the Champions League, the Basques must score two points in the remaining two rounds or wait for Villarreal to lose points. The Basques' away statistics are third in the division, better only than those of Barça and Atletico, +10=3-5, 24:17 goal difference.
Expert Betting Tips
In this pairing, we are on the side of the home side. Atlético has excellent home statistics, and it is unlikely that they will settle for anything less than a win, especially as they are motivated by Real Madrid, who are above Atlético in the standings. The Basques are also not completely solved in the standings, but +5 in two rounds to the end is an excellent result, and even a defeat in Madrid will not fundamentally change anything. We believe the Madrid team will do everything possible to win in the upcoming game. As for the total, we do not expect a very productive match. The teams are about equal in class and have a good defense.
