Los Blancos host The La Real in LaLiga Matchday 19
The Galacticos are arguably the best club in the history of football. They are the unchallenged champions of Europe winning the UCL a record 14 times. Madrid pulled off various comebacks last season to win the Champions League. They also won LaLiga and their star player Karim Benzema won the Ballon d’Or. However despite losing a bit of their momentum, Madrid are still in the game. Real Madrid are just 3 points behind Barcelona and have a chance to lead the standings once again.
Real Sociedad on the other hand are giving a tough fight as well. They are 3rd place in the table with 38 points and are also in the title race. Sociedad gave Barcelona a tough fight in the Quarter Finals of the Copa Del Rey. Unfortunately, they lost 1-0 but are aware of their mistakes and will not reciprocate them against Madrid.
