Two of last season’s high flyers meet in La Liga as Real Sociedad host Atletico Madrid at the Estadio Anoeta.
Sociedad are in high spirits having secured Champions League football at the club for the first time in a decade this week, beating Olympique Lyon 4-0 on aggregate in the qualifiers.
Atletico meanwhile finished one place above the hosts last term and therefore had already booked their place in Europe’s top competition.
Despite losing top-scorer and talisman Radamel Falcao to AS Monaco this summer, the away side have started the campaign strongly and have recorded wins over Sevilla and Rayo Vallecano so far in the league.
Sociedad are also unbeaten but have drawn one of their opening matches and like Atleti, have also lost one of their best players with Asier Illarramendi switching to Real Madrid.
Arsenal reject Carlos Vela has been in superb form for the home team, whilst the visitors’ forward Diego Costa has taken up the mantle of Falcao and has netted three times in the Spanish top tier so far.
This is set to be the first real test of the season for both sides and should prove to be a thrilling encounter.
