Atletico Madrid Form & Team News

Atletico Madrid are the number One placed team in the La Liga presently as it has been for most of the season. They have a two-point lead over second and third-placed Real Madrid and Barcelona teams with 77 points from 35 matches. They have won as many as 23 games in the process losing only on four occasions in that. They have also conceded the least number of goals for any team in La Liga this season just giving away 22 goals. Simeone’s men were favourites to win the title for the most part of the season and they had a big lead of points from the other teams. They have managed to drop a few crucial points in between which has helped the cause of some other teams to really have a say from here on and also potentially topple the table-toppers from that position. 

Renan Lodi is the only player missing out from the Atletico Madrid squad for the crucial Barca game away. Diego Simeone is only just a little steps away from winning the league which by the context of the season has looked more or less Atletico’s from start. They need to capitalise on this game and try to win which they probably should, they are most likely going to win the La Liga this year. Former Barca icon Luiz Suarez has come in like a storm and performed to his fullest in the Atletico squad. Carrasco and Oblak have also shown the mettle to perform in these conditions and this has probably made them a side to beat this season. 

Real Sociedad Form & Team News

Atletico Madrid are the 14th placed team in La Liga this season with 56 points from 35 games. They have won 15 games while losing as many as nine games this season. They have also drawn 11 games. They have not managed to win three of their last five matches which shows the amount of inconsistency by the Sociedad outfit in recent times. Their away record is not that great as well with just seven wins coming from 17 games played so far. Real Sociedad can not make the top-four from here on but they can still have a say in the larger scheme of things and quite a lot of teams would hope for a win here for the side from Madrid. Given a win, they can guarantee themselves a grand farewell going into the flag-end of the tournament.

Luna, Gonzalez, Pacheco, Mikel Merino, Munoz, and Luca Sanghalli are the injured players in the Real Sociedad outfit coming into the clash against leaders and fancied title-winners Atletico Madrid on Thursday. Imanol Alguacil Barrenetxea the manager would need to put in his every last bit of energy into the next game which might be the trigger for a great opening from the next game on. Oyarzabal and Llorente have been quite splendid with their midfield antics this season while Merino missing out could be a real blow but they have quite a lot of players who can cover up and make up for his absence.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Athletico Madrid looks like the favourites to win this match given the league form is very much better than that of Real Sociedad. Real Sociedad have had quite a few tacky games off late and have been quite inconsistent to say nonetheless. Atletico Madrid will be a happier lot after the draw against the much-fancied Barcelona side away which will give them the boost to go on and win the title from here on.

Tip 1: Total Goals under 2.5

Three of the last four matches that Atletico Madrid have played across competitions have had the total goals to be under 2.5. While playing at home, Atletico Madrid have had two of their last three matches where the total goals have been under 2.5. In La Liga, Atletico Madrid have three of the last four matches where the condition was satisfied. In the case of Real Sociedad, all three of the last three matches played across competitions, have had the total goals to be under 2.5. Playing in the La Liga, all of their last three games have also had the total goals to be under 2.5. Out of their last five head to head matches in La Liga, all five matches had the total goals to be under 2.5. So it’s quite likely the match will have under 2.5 goals. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for the total goals to be under 2.5 is 1.78.

Tip 2: Both teams not to score

In the last five matches played by Atletico Madrid across competitions, four of those have had both teams not to score. While playing at home, all three of the last three matches Atletico Madrid have played across competitions have had both teams not scoring. In La Liga, Atletico Madrid had four of the last five matches where both teams have not scored.

Playing away, this season, four of the last five matches Real Sociedad was part of have turned out to have both teams not scoring. Five of the last six head to head match between the two sides also had yielded the condition as mentioned above, so it’s most likely both teams might not end up scoring. The odds for Both Teams to not score according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.72.


Athletico Madrid have the destiny in their hand from now on, If they are able to win the rest of the games, they can win the title while Sociedad can hope to cause another twist in the already grinding La Liga season even further with a win. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1. Total Goals under 2.5 @1.78
