When and Where: The La Liga match kicks off from the Santiago Bernabeu at 3 p.m. EST. A live stream is available via ESPN3.
Preview: After a run of 11-straight La Liga victories that gave them a 10-point lead over Barcelona at the top of the standings, two consecutive draws have suddenly blown the title race open once more.
Although Real remain the favorites to reclaim the La Liga crown, a trip to the Nou Camp next month means that they now know that any further slip-ups could prove crucial.
The concession of a last minute free-kick from Marcos Senna against Villareal, which preceded the sendings off of Sergio Ramos and Mesut Ozil, as well as boss Jose Mourinho, hinted that the pressure may be getting to Real. Something they will be eager to disprove with a positive performance on Saturday.
Real can count themselves somewhat fortunate to be drawn against the heroic minnows Apoel in the Champions League quarter-final, meaning that, although the first-leg takes place on Tuesday, they should be able to put their full focus on Sociedad.
Sociedad find themselves in 14th position in La Liga, but with nine points between themselves and the relegation zone they are surely too far clear to be dragged into serious trouble. Though they will be eager to get some points on the board after two consecutive defeats.
Team News: Real's personnel issues coming into the game revolve around the fall out from Wendesday's match. Mesut Ozil will miss out through suspension, though Sergio Ramos' first yellow card from the Villareal match has since been rescinded meaning that he will be available.
However, Pepe has since been given a two-match suspension, after being found guilty of abusing the referee. Lassana Diarra will also be unavailable against Sociedad after accumulating too may cautions.
Sociedad have suspension-issues of their own, with Gorka Elustondo and Dani Estrada both unavailable for the trip to Madrid. Although their loss is compensated somewhat by the return from a ban of Antoine Griezmann.
Prediction: Interest in the La Liga title race has been reignited in the past week following Real's dropped points. If Barcelona can record their seventh-successive La Liga victory right before Real kick-off then the pressure will mount on the leaders with their advantage cut to just three points.
But the huge experience in the Real team, coupled with Sociedad's poor record away from home this season, mean it would be a major shock if Real were to drop points for the third-successive game.
