“Soccer" Who Wins?

Real Sociedad is ranked 13th in the league with a record of 1-1-1 SU in their first three games played. They opened their season with a draw against Valencia and then defeated Mallorca in their second assignment. However, they lost to rivals Athletic Bilbao in their last match played.

On the other hand, Atletico Madrid has opened the current La Liga season with three straight victories. Atletico Madrid defeated Getafe 1-0 in the opening round, they beat Leganes 2-0 in their second outing and then scored a 3-2 win over Eibar in round three.

Atletico lost Diego Godin, Felipe Luis, Juanfran and Antoinne Griezmann during the transfer business and those players left shoes aren’t easy to fill. But don’t forget that when you talk about Atletico Madrid, it has always about their system more than the individual talent of their players. Likewise, their defense is more than just Godin, Luis and Juanfran.

Forget about Barcelona and Real Madrid right now, Atletico Madrid is playing like La Liga contenders. It’s too early in the season but with the way they are playing, their current form suggests that this could be a good year for them. Against Real Sociedad who have scored only two goals this season so far, I like Atletico Madrid to beat Real Sociedad in this match. Prediction: Atletico Madrid
