Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Real Sociedad

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's La Liga clash with Real Sociedad.

Real Madrid will be looking to make it back-to-back La Liga wins when they welcome Real Sociedad to the Bernabeu on Saturday night.

Los Blancos have only lost one of their 12 league matches this season to sit second in the table, level on points with leaders Barcelona heading into the next set of fixtures.

Zinedine Zidane's side thumped Eibar 4-0 in their last game before the international break but were held to a goalless draw by Real Betis at the Bernabeu last time out.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's clash with fifth-placed Sociedad.
