Real Madrid host Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu in La Liga on Sunday, looking to build on their latest victory.
Los Blancos picked up another derby win on Thursday, beating Atletico Madrid 3-1 to roar into the semi-finals of the Copa Del Rey.
Rodrygo canceled out former Galacticos star Alvaro Morata's early opener for the visitors in the 79th minute and forced extra time, where Karim Benzema and Vinicus Junior scored to put the contest beyond Atletico.
It was the third consecutive win for Carlo Ancelotti's team since losing 3-1 to Barcelona in the Spanish Supercup final a few days ago.
Real Madrid will now look to channel this momentum into their La Liga campaign and keep the heat on leaders Barcelona, who are three points ahead of them in first.
Real Sociedad are just three points behind the Spanish champions in third and can draw level with them with a victory, but they have played a game more.
La Real also saw their nine-game winning run in all competitions end following a narrow 1-0 loss to Barcelona in the cup on Wednesday, and also the first time in 11 matches that the Basque Country outfit failed to score.
