How Real Madrid could line up against Real Sociedad

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

Real Madrid will attempt to return to winning ways in La Liga when they welcome Real Sociedad to the Bernabeu on Sunday night.

Los Blancos were held to a 2-2 draw at Villarreal on Thursday, meaning that they will enter this weekend's round of fixtures still in fourth but now seven points off the pace being set by Barcelona.

Madrid won the Club World Cup for a fourth time in the latter stages of 2018 but have ground to make up in Spain's top flight.

Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how Santiago Solari's side could line up for the clash with 15th-placed Sociedad.


POSS RM XI vs. SOC

Out: Marco Asensio (muscle), Marcos Llorente (abductor), Mariano Diaz (back)
Doubtful: Gareth Bale (calf)

Madrid could be without the services of Gareth Bale after the Welshman had to be substituted during the 2-2 draw with Villarreal on Thursday night.

The attacker picked up a calf problem in the latter stages of the first period and was replaced by Isco at the interval.

Marco Asensio and Mariano Diaz remain on the sidelines, meaning that Solari has limited options in the final third of the field.

Isco could come into the attack alongside Karim Benzema and Lucas Vazquez, while Solari could decide to freshen his midfield with Dani Ceballos an option.

Marcos Llorente had impressed in Casemiro's absence, but the Spaniard picked up an injury during training ahead of the Villarreal clash.
