Real Madrid began the Primera Division season with a 2-0 victory at home to Cordoba and will be hoping to make it two wins out of two when they travel to the Basque country to take on Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Madrid prospered 4-0 in last season’s equivalent fixture, with second-half goals from Gareth Bale, Pepe and Alvaro Morata adding to Asier Illarramendi’s opener. They have not lost at the Anoeta since 2004.

La Real, for their part, started the season with a 1-0 defeat away to newly promoted Eibar before crashing out of the Europa League on Thursday with a 3-0 defeat away to Kuban Krasnodar.

Jagoba Arrasate’s side will be keen to get some points on the board by causing an upset against one of Spain’s big two.

Here are the key battles that will shape Sunday’s match between Real Sociedad and Real Madrid.
