With the Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain right around the corner, Real Madrid have rediscovered their goal threat at the most opportune time, scoring 18 goals in their last four matches.
Real Sociedad were no match for Los Blancos on Saturday evening as the hosts ran out 5-2 victors and if the Madrid club are to have any joy against the French club they will need to be efficient in attack.
