Both teams last competed against one another on the penultimate weekend of the 2022-23 campaign, with Atletico emerging victorious by a score of 2-1.

Atletico Madrid finished in third place in La Liga for the eighth consecutive season, and so far in pre-season they have demonstrated both their strengths and their weaknesses.

Despite holding a lead with 89 minutes remaining in the first of their two friendly, the team coached by Diego Simeone was defeated by a K-League All-Star side by a score of 3-2.

On the other hand, Atletico Madrid made amends for that late failure by prevailing over Manchester City with their strongest team on Sunday.

The Colchoneros are scheduled to play in the Champions League once again, and there is a good chance that there will be movement in the transfer market. As a result, the lineup that will start against Granada on the opening Monday of the new season might very well be very different.

However, before to the start of the La Liga season, there are two additional friendlies that are scheduled to take place. The match against Sevilla on Saturday will immediately follow this one.

Atletico was the only team that was successful in defeating Real Sociedad in any of their final nine matches of the season.

The San Sebastian team qualified for the Champions League for the first time in 11 years thanks to an outstanding conclusion to the season that saw them earn 20 points out of a possible 27.

Despite this, La Real's preseason has gotten off to a less than ideal start, as they have already suffered two tough losses since returning to action.

Osasuna defeated Imanol Alguacil's team by a score of 3-1, thanks in large part to a hat trick scored by Alejandro Catena. Last week, Sporting Lisbon defeated the Spaniards by a score of 3-0.

On Friday night, Real Sociedad defeated Bayer Leverkusen thanks to a goal scored by Brais Mendez. This victory was Real Sociedad's first of the pre-season.

La Real will begin their season in La Liga with a match against Girona, and they will also play Real Betis, another Spanish club, in their final pre-season matchup this coming weekend.

In the previous two weeks, defenders Cesar Azpilicueta, Caglar Soyuncu, and Javi Galan have all made their debuts for Atletico Madrid for the first time. Javi Galan is the only one of the three to have started.

Their presence is required because Simeone is now dealing with an injury problem at the back line. Jose Maria Gimenez, Reinildo, Nahuel Molina, and Stefan Savic are all currently sidelined due to their respective injuries.

In his first action of the preseason, Memphis Depay scored a goal for his team against Manchester City on the weekend, which resulted in a victory for his side.

Joao Felix has returned from his loan stint with Chelsea, however after being an unused substitute in the match against the K-League All-Stars, he was not included in the starting lineup for the match versus City.

Real Sociedad's lone major addition to their roster this summer has been full-back Hamari Traore, who recently saw action in all 41 minutes of their match against Bayer Leverkusen.

Although Alguacil has access to a roster that is close to its complete complement of players at this time, Andoni Gorosabel did not participate in the contest against the German team.

Due to the fact that the midfielder David Silva declared last week that he would be retiring from football, the fans of Real Sociedad will not have the opportunity to see him play at Anoeta during the current campaign.

The following players have been mentioned as potential starters for Atletico Madrid: Grbic; Azpilicueta, Soyuncu, Witsel, Mario Hermoso, Javi Galan; De Paul, Koke; Griezmann, Depay, and Carrasco

The following players have been mentioned as potential starters for Real Sociedad: Alex Remiro; Traore; Le Normand; Diego Rico; Aihen Munoz; Merino; Zubeldia; Zubimendi; Kubo; Sadiq; and Oyarzabal
