This weekend, Real Madrid will host Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium and with both teams currently playing some absolutely brilliant football in La Liga, this one is bound to be one cracker of a game.
Of course, the hosts are slight favourites going into the clash but even though the Galacticos are formidable within their own fortress, La Real have been quite a revelation this season and an upset could very well be on the cards.
