The ATL vs RS match preview –

Former La Liga Champions Atletico Madrid will be taking on Real Sociedad as they look to get back on track on Saturday.

Atletico Madrid are having a difficulty in scoring goals. This fact would be surprising to their fans given the attacking prowess the team has at their disposal. With the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Diego Costa, Thomas Lemar and Koke, they have some of the best players in the world. Coach Diego Simeone will be scratching his head and trying to understand how his team lost a 4-0 game to Borussia Dortmund last week. Answers have to be found to questions which are apparent to the entire world.

Meanwhile, Real Sociedad too aren’t a bad team in the Spanish league. They are known to be hovering around the European spot in the table, but this just might now be their year. The level of inconsistency on display from this team has been appalling. They have a really good team of above average players, and it is shocking to see them suffer. To get back in the swing of things a gritty performance against a big name team would be the ideal catalyst and that is exactly what they have got.
