How Real Madrid could line up against Real Sociedad

Sports Mole looks at how Real Madrid could line up in Saturday's La Liga clash with Real Sociedad.

Real Madrid will continue their 2019-20 La Liga campaign with a home game against Real Sociedad on Saturday night.

Zinedine Zidane's side are currently second in the table with 25 points from their 12 matches, level with Barcelona heading into the latest set of fixtures.

Madrid will also bring a two-game winning run into this contest having beaten Galatasaray and Eibar in their last two matches, scoring 10 times in the process and conceding zero.

The capital giants are the favourites to triumph on Saturday night, but Sociedad are just two points behind in fifth spot after a strong start to the campaign.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Madrid could line up on Saturday night.


Out: Marco Asensio (knee), James Rodriguez (knee), Nacho (knee), Lucas Vazquez (toe)

Marco Asensio remains a long-term absentee for Madrid due to a knee problem, while James Rodriguez and Nacho are also on the sidelines for the capital giants.

Los Blancos confirmed on Thursday that Lucas Vazquez had also joined the injury list with the Spaniard suffering a fractured toe during a gym session.

Gareth Bale has trained with Madrid upon his return from international duty, though, and it will be fascinating to see whether the Wales international is included in the squad on Saturday night.

The attacker is unlikely to start either way, though, with Rodrygo Goes expected to be given the nod alongside Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema in the final third of the field.

Marcelo and Toni Kroos could also return to the XI having not featured against Eibar before the international break despite Ferland Mendy and Federico Valverde impressing in the four-goal success.
