Real Sociedad vs Real Madrid Match PreviewReal Sociedad will be hosting Jose Mourinho's Galactic squad in San Sebastian eager to follow Hercules' example and drink the blood of a giant to settle a precedent on how determined they are to retain the category. Martín Lasarte's boys were defeated only once in the last season of the Liga Adelante while Real Madrid has not yet won playing away this season. Team's top striker Raúl Tamudo has been able to score against Madrid five times and his partnership with Joseba Llorente has been rather prolific. If they manage to beat Iker Casillas' goal the Erreala will have a golden opportunity to bag the three points.
Both Claudio Bravo and Iker Casillas will play a main role in the outcome of this match. The Chilean goalkeeper is one of the main reasons why Real Sociedad made it to La Liga so quickly, while Casillas has kept Madrid's goal shut both in the domestic league and in the Champions League. Mesut Ozil has become one of the main engines of Mourinho's strategy, pleasing the crowds goal after goal. Gonzalo Higuain has been unstoppable, leading the offense and communicating efficiently with Madrid's drivers. This match will be difficult for Xabi Alonso facing his former team, but he'll count with a lot of assistance in the midfield to break through Sociedad's defense. The Merengues are sweet after defeating Ajax for the Champions and won't hesitate against Martin Lasarte early this Saturday.
