Real Madrid begin their La Liga campaign on Sunday evening as they travel to the Reale Arena to face Real Sociedad.
Zinedine Zidane’s side have won their opening game in each of the last four seasons and will be aiming for another success this weekend.
La Real got their campaign underway last Sunday, picking up a creditable 1-1 draw at Valladolid.

Real Sociedad vs Real Madrid Team News
New Sociedad signing David Silva could be available to make his debut, although striker Willian Jose is unlikely to feature. Midfielders Asier Illarramendi, Martin Zubimendi and Igor Zubeldia are all major doubts.
Martin Odegaard who may be ruled out of a return to his former club with a tendon issue but Marco Asensio is definitely out, while Eden Hazard and Isco are both rated as doubtful.
Real Sociedad vs Real Madrid Preview
Los Blancos ended last season not only as champions, but also as the team with the best defensive record in the division with just 25 goals being scored against them.
Real Madrid conceded only 14 goals on the road, keeping clean sheets at Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla, although only on four occasions did they score more than twice away from the Bernabeu.
While there are some attacking injuries for Zidane to contend with, defensively the side are practically at full strength and they will be confident of starting the new campaign with a strong showing.
Real Sociedad vs Real Madrid Tips and Predictions
Under 2.5 goals is priced at 11/10 (2.10) but more attractive is backing Los Blancos to win and under 3.5 goals in the game at 81/50 (2.62).
Only two of Madrid’s last 13 away games have seen more than three goals and if we expect the champions to start with a win, opposing them to do so in a low-scoring game is appealing.
