Real Madrid take on the visitors Real Sociedad in the round 5 match of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, September 17th at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu (Madrid).
Real Madrid are in its third season since Carlo Ancelotti's return to the capital of Spain. Interestingly, this is likely to be his last season, as it has been announced in advance that Carlo will take over as the head coach of the Brazilian national team in 2024. After a triumphant 2021/2022 season, where they won La Liga and the Champions League, there was a slight decline in the last campaign, although they still managed to secure several trophies, including the Copa del Rey. This summer, they unexpectedly lost Karim Benzema to the Middle East, and just a few days before the start of the new season, they also lost Thibaut Courtois due to injury. Moreover, their star newcomer during the offseason was essentially just one player - Jude Bellingham. There were hopes of signing Kylian Mbappé, but PSG did not release him. However, the role of the goal scorer unexpectedly fell on the newcomer, Jude Bellingham. Thanks to his performances and maximum goal-scoring efficiency, Real Madrid started the season with four wins, maintaining a perfect record.

Real Sociedad have recently managed to climb to the upper part of the league table. Their progress was symbolized by winning the Copa del Rey, a competition they hadn't won since the 1980s when their current coach, Imanol Alguacil, was a player in San Sebastián. After winning the Copa del Rey, they tried to finish in the top four in the league, although they often fell short, allowing teams like Sevilla to finish higher. However, in the last season, La Real succeeded in securing a spot in the Champions League as La Blanca Andalusia struggled. This means that the team will finally return to the Champions League. With this success, they were able to find the funds to sign players like Odriozola, Amadou Traoré, André Silva, Thierry, and even Zakaryan. However, despite these acquisitions, their first three matches ended in draws, with a victory coming against the newcomer to La Liga, Granada.
Last season, Real Sociedad came out on top against Real Madrid, not even allowing their grand rivals to score: 2-0 and 0-0. Bookmakers believe that the home team has many more advantages. Despite their problems, the Galacticos are in good shape and can handle any challenges. We expect Carlo Ancelotti's proteges to secure a victory.
Prediction for the match: Real Madrid to win.
