Real Sociedad Face Real Madrid in a Fight for a Spot in the UCL - Game Odds and Betting Preview

Real Sociedad are hosts to Real Madrid on May 26th, 2013 in the 37th round of the Spanish La Liga.

There are only two games left in the season and Real Sociedad are tied with Valencia for points and in a tight race for a 4th place finish which leads to the UEFA Champions League 3rd qualifying round.

Qualifying for the UCL would be an amazing feat for Real Sociedad who finished in 12th place last season and in 15th place the season before, after spending three years in the Spanish Segunda (second) Division.

Real Sociedad are going to have to earn their spot in the champions league by battling the mighty Real Madrid.

Real Madrid seem to be in shambles right now. Their coach Jose Mourinho is on his way out and the summer can not come soon enough for the players who just lost their last chance at silverware in the Copa del Rey final where they were beaten by their city rivals Atletico Madrid for the first time in 14 years.

Lets take a look at the odds for the upcoming match:

Real Sociedad: 6/4
Draw 13/5
Real Madrid 8/5

The odds are close, but Real Sociedad are surprisingly the favourites to win this match. A $100 bet on Real Sociedad could bring $150 in profit, while the same bet on Real Madrid could return $160 in profit.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the favourite to score for Real Madrid at 8/13 (bet $100 to profit $61), while Xabi Prieto is the favourite to score for R. Sociedad at 21/20 (bet $100 to profit $105).

Earlier in the season Real Madrid beat Real Sociedad 4-3 at Santiago Bernabeu.

The biggest question ahead of this match is if Real Madrid, having nothing left to play for in the season, will take this game seriously.

Lets see how this one plays out.
