Real Sociedad will have the chance to move level on points with Real Madrid when they face the reigning La Liga champions on Sunday.

Both clubs have enjoyed strong league campaigns and look set to finish inside the top three with Real Madrid 10 points clear of Atletico Madrid and Sociedad seven ahead of Diego Simeone’s side.

Whether David Silva and co battle one Madrid side for a top-two spot and maybe even the title or just focus on staying ahead of the other in the closing stages of the season will largely depend on how they do at the Bernabeu.

It was hoped David Alaba would make his return against Atletico Madrid after picking up a calf injury but he was unable to do so, suffering a setback that will likely keep him out of this match too. He’s not the only defender with fitness issues, with Ferland Mendy and Dani Carvajal doubts as well along with Lucas Vasquez and Eden Hazard.
