Sports Mole previews Sunday's La Liga clash between Atletico Madrid and Real Sociedad.

Atletico Madrid will be hoping to hold on to second spot in La Liga when they host Real Sociedad on Sunday evening.

Diego Simeone's side have drawn their last two games, which has allowed city rivals Real Madrid to move two points behind them in the table. However, they boast the best home record in the league having won all 13 of their games at the Vicente Calderon this season.

Sociedad could move into the Champions League places with a victory, if other results go their way.

Atletico midfielder Mario Suarez is suspended for the match so Gabi is likely to replace him.

Sociedad coach Philippe Montanier could name an unchanged lineup from last week's 3-3 draw with Real Betis.
