Both sides learned their fate in the Champions League this week with Sociedad drawn in Group A alongside Manchester United, Shakhtar Donetsk and Bayer Leverkusen. Meanwhile, Atletico were pitted in Group G alongside Iberian rivals Porto, Zenit St Petersburg and Austria Vienna.
Sociedad have taken four points from their opening two games of the league season, but they were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Elche last week. Atletico have a 100% record after two games, however, with comprehensive wins over Sevilla and Rayo Vallecano.
The corresponding match last season ended in a 1-0 win for Atletico, but Sociedad were victorious by the same scoreline when they travelled to Madrid in March.
Sociedad: Bravo; Cadamuro, Estrada, Inigo Martinez, De la Bella; Pardo, Prieto, Granero; Griezmann, Vela, Seferovic
Atletico: Courtois; Juanfran, Godin, Miranda, Insua; Gabi, Suarez, Koke; Costa, Villa, Rodriguez
Sports Mole says: 1-1
