How Real Madrid could line up against Real Sociedad in La Liga

Real Madrid are on a superb run of seven wins in a row in all competitions

Real Madrid will be aiming to maintain their excellent winning run when they face Real Sociedad on Saturday evening.

Los Blancos are on a run of seven victories in a row in all competitions which includes five wins in La Liga.

During the week they narrowly emerged victorious 1-0 against Athletic Bilbao thanks to solitary goal from Karim Benzema.

The only major absentees in Carlo Ancelotti's side at the moment are Gareth Bale and Dani Ceballos, meaning the Italian has plenty options for the fixture versus Sociedad.

Thibaut Courtois will start in goal behind a likely defence of Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, David Alaba and Ferland Mendy.

Carvajal was rested on the bench against Athletic with Lucas Vazquez at right-back, but expect the former to be brought back in.

Luka Modric, Casemiro and Toni Kroos will make up the trusted midfield three again, though Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde will be hoping for more minutes before the winter break.

We could see one change in attack, with Rodrygo given an opportunity on the right instead of Marco Asensio.

Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema have proved undroppable and will start.
