Real Sociedad vs. Atletico Madrid – Match prediction, lineups

Real Sociedad is set to host Atlético Madrid at the Estadio Anoeta this Saturday afternoon in a La Liga match on the final day of the 2023-24 season. Although the game has no impact on the standings, there is still a lot of excitement.

Real Sociedad will be looking to avenge their 2-1 defeat to Atletico in the clash at Civitas Metropolitano in October. However, they would miss several key players due to injuries: Robin Le Normand and Igor Zubeldía (muscle injury), and Ahn Muñoz and Carlos Fernández (knee injury). 

Additionally, Martin Zubimendi is struggling with a muscular problem and will be evaluated before the game.Coach Imanol Alguacil may change his lineup slightly, giving players like Alvaro Odriozola, Ander Barrenetxea, Takefusa Kubo and Andre Silva a chance to start after being on the bench last weekend.
 Mikel Oyarzabal, top scorer with 14 goals this season, will be keen to improve his record against Atletico, a team against whom he has scored only once in his last 11 matches.

For Atlético, Vitolo (knee), Nahuel Molina (hamstring), and Pablo Barrios (muscle) are all out with injuries, and Stefan Savic is a doubt with a knock.

Gabriel Paulista is suspended for accumulating too many yellow cards. However, Axel Witsel and Jose Jimenez are back from their suspensions and could join Mario Hermoso in defence.

There is also speculation that several Atlético players will possibly leave the club this summer. Memphis Depay, Saul Niguez, Angel Correa and Alvaro Morata could all make their final appearances for the team on Saturday.
