La Liga defending champions Real Madrid start their defence of the title on Monday as they face Real Sociedad at the Reale Arena ( Anoeta Stadium) @ 12:30 PM IST on September 21.
Los Blancos were part of an exciting title race last season and they ultimately
finished five points clear of second-place Barcelona last season to win the title.
They’ve not played since exiting the Champions League in Manchester in August but Zinedine Zidane’s side will be hungry to set the tone for another league title challenge by trying to match the level they set during the run-in to the 2019/20 season when they were defensively very solid and had a knack for winning tight matches.
Real Madrid have not been very active in transfer market due to the coronavirus pandemic, but they have recently sold Sergio Reguilon and loaned out Gareth Bale, which should ease up space in their wage closet. They have also registered Martin Odegaard as a first-team player this season after his season long-loan at Real Sociedad.
On the other hand, Real Sociedad, who finished 6th in La Liga last term, started their 2020-21 season with a draw at Real Valladolid last weekend.
Also, Imanol Alguacil’s side recently bought experienced midfielder David Silva from Manchester City, and the 34-year-old should make his debut in this match.
