Real Madrid visit Real Sociedad hoping to extend their current winning streak against a quality opponent who are currently sitting third in the table after a brilliant start to the 2021-2022 season.

No rotations are expected for Real Madrid other than Carvajal and Rodrygo’s potential return to the starting XI. The starters are getting the job done and while Ancelotti is risking a serious drop in form due to fatigue, it’s clear that the Italian coach doesn’t trust his bench much.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Rodrygo, Vinicius, Benzema.

Real Sociedad predicted XI: Remiro; Gorosabel, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Rico; Portu, Zubimendi, Guevara, Januzaj; Isak, Oyarzabal

This is a monumental game for Real Madrid, who have an opportunity to increase their lead in the table against one of the contenders. If they do so, Ancelotti could decide to make those needed rotations against Inter next Tuesday, given that Madrid will advance as winners of their group with just a draw.
