Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad: Match Stats

Karim Benzema has been nothing short of extraordinary for Real this season. He’s the league’s most prolific marksman on 19 goals with seven of those having broken the deadlock. On top of that Benzema has scored the winning goal in six matches, a league high, and from those aforementioned strikes he’s won his team more points (15) than any other player in Spain’s top division this season.
Real Sociedad have taken points in two of their last three visits to Real Madrid in La Liga under Imanol Alguacil’s stewardship. In fact, no manager has won more games in all competitions against Real since the 2018/19 season than Alguacil (three, alongside Paco López, Marcelino García Toral and Ernesto Valverde). David Silva last time out ended a streak of 13 consecutive games without scoring or assisting which proved to be his worst such run in an illustrious playing career. His effort saw Real Sociedad win and keep a clean sheet for a second consecutive game, something they’ve not managed since between April and September 2021.
