Real Sociedad v Real Madrid: La Liga – live

7.15pm BST

With no Ronaldo and no Benzema, attention will be paid to Gareth Bale, who hasn’t exactly shown his best form so far this term. By which we mean the Real fans gave him a big booing recently. Zinny Zidane wants a little more from the Welshman, for sure. He said:

Lately the questions are all about Gareth, but each day he feels better. He had four months out of the team, and to return to his best level he will need four more months at least. We must give him time, and we are happy with him. The price puts you up there, you cannot do anything about that, it happened to me when I found it tough in my first months after I came here.
