Dethroned Spanish champions Atletico Madrid will see out a disappointing campaign on Sunday with a clash against Real Sociedad at the San Mames on Sunday.

Los Rojiblancos conceded their La Liga crown to city rivals Real Madrid in limp fashion, having struggled to put up a sustained title assault.

Diego Simeone's charges are 17 points behind the champions, and following their last draw, will hope to end their campaign on a high.

Sociedad are no pushovers, though, famously ending their Copa Del Rey pursuit in the Round of 16 in January with a 2-0 victory at home.

La Real will now look to secure back-to-back wins over the capital side for the first time in over 16 years.

With a place in the UEFA Europa League group stages secured, a victory would also see the Basque Country outfit finish with three points more than they did in their last campaign.

Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Both teams are looking to end their seasons on a high and have plenty of quality in their ranks.

Sociedad are generally strong at home, and Atletico have got a taste of that once already this season.

However, given it's the final day, with nothing much at stake for either team, this could end in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Real Sociedad 1-1 Atletico Madrid.
