Madrid, Spain (SportsNetwork. Ryan OReilly Jersey .com) - Real Madrid is will be shorthanded when the club welcomes Real Sociedad to the Bernabeu on Saturday. Cristiano Ronaldo will begin his two-match ban for committing acts of violent conduct in Real Madrids 2-1 defeat of Cordoba last time out.

Gareth Bale, who nabbed the winning goal in Madrids win over Cordoba, will be asked to shoulder the bulk of the offensive responsibilities. Karim Benzema, meanwhile, will be aiming to find the back of the net for just the second time in the clubs last six outings across all competitions.

Athletic Bilbao snapped a run of four straight defeats by claiming a draw against Malaga last weekend. Now, the club will turn its attention to its meeting with Levante on Sunday. Rounding out Sundays slate, Almeria and Getafe will square off at the Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos.
