Real Madrid returned from the winter break with a solid enough point on the road at Valencia and bid to get back to winning ways as they return to the Santiago Bernabeu on Match Day 18 to take on Real Sociedad.

Real Madrid had no trouble in this fixture last season, winning this game 5-2 and coming out on top 3-1 in Sociedad.

Marcos Llorente, Marco Asensio and Mariano are all out injured for the home side. Sociedad must make do without Kévin Rodrigues, Theo Hernández, Andoni Gorosabel and Martín Merquelanz.

Real Madrid's form certainly has picked up of late following a spell which saw them lose four of five in La Liga. They head into this game having now won five of their last seven and are now back within one point of the top four positions. Despite their recent troubles they will always be a tough nut to crack here and have lost just one of their past 17 at home in La Liga. They have kept a clean sheet in five of their past six at home.

Real Sociedad have now lost their past four in La Liga. A run which has seen them slump to now being only three points clear of the drop zone. In fairness to them though they have done fairly well away from home picking up four wins to go with their four defeats.

Real Madrid are a formidable outfit on their own patch, are playing some decent stuff again at present and should have too much for Sociedad.

Prediction: Real Madrid 3 - 0 Real Sociedad
