Real Madrid will look to make it three wins on the trot when they face Real Sociedad on Saturday.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side has been full of goals in recent week’s scoring 12 in their last three games, all of which can be attributed to their exciting front three of Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and the rejuvenated Karim Benzema.
Bale scored his third goal in as many games with his side’s second goal in the 2-2 draw with Juventus, a result that leaves the club on the brink of qualification for the knock out stages.

The Welsh man is starting to show his true form and in addition to his goals he has also chipped in with four assists.
Ronaldo meanwhile has been in stunning form this season and already has 21 goals in league and European action this season. The Portuguese star missed training on Thursday, along with his fellow countrymen, Pepe and Fabio Coentrao however all three are expected to be fit for the clash with Sociedad.
Iker Casillas is pushing for a first league start of the season after his fine performance in Turin midweek and with Real conceding in all of their last three league games he could replace Diego Lopez in the side.
Sociedad meanwhile are on a good run at present and their midweek draw with Manchester United saw them claim their first point in this year’s Champions League not to mention stretch their unbeaten run to four games.
Three of those games have been in La Liga and have culminated in 7 points and 10 goals and a jump up to 7th in the table.
A five nil win over Osasuna last time out was the club’s biggest win of the season and their best performance to date.
The game saw five different scorers get on the score sheet yet despite their impressive recent form, midfielder Xabi Prieto admits his side will have to move up another notch if they are to claim a first win in Madrid since 2004.
“We have to stay focused and play a good game if we are going to get something,” Prieto said ahead of the match.
“Let’s see if we can continue in the way that the team is playing on a big stage.
“We always expect a great Real Madrid, playing at home with the support of their fans, and we need our best.”
Sociedad will be without midfielder Esteban Granero and Diego Ifran.
