Oyarzabal and Silva to return for Sociedad against Atletico Madrid

Real Sociedad are set to be boosted by the returns of key players Mikel Oyarzabal and David Silva for their crunch La Liga clash against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday evening.

The two Spaniards have been key for La Real this season, with the team assembling an unlikely charge for the La Liga crown.

However, those hopes have been dented in recent weeks with the respective absences of the duo, an aspect which has seen Imanol Alguacil’s men go five matches without a league win, including losing their last two to Barcelona and Levante.

Oyarzabal, who had scored seven goals prior to picking up his injury, has been suffering with a muscular injury. Meanwhile, Silva has been absent for four out of the last five league games with a hamstring problem.

The two should return just in time for the crunch clash against current leaders Atletico Madrid on Tuesday however. Real Sociedad sit three points behind their opponents and could return to the top of the table with a convincing win at the Anoeta Stadium.

Despite that, they are not much fancied to end their recent winless run and can be backed at a price of 11/5 with Paddy Power to overcome Diego Simeone’s Atleti.
