Real Sociedad vs Barcelona: Predictions
In a strange twist of events, the Spanish Super Cup is taking place this season before we know who the Copa Del Rey winners are. In Spain’s new, four-team format for this competition however, both finalists will go up against the two teams to finish in the top two in La Liga, so Real Sociedad and AthleticBilbao can wait to play their Copa Del Rey final in front of supporters later this year.
Erreala started the season in scintillating form and may have even been considered outside title contenders early on, but they’ve since won just one of their last 12 games in all competitions to slip down to fifth place. Another top six finish will be the aim in the league, but they can set their sights on a Champions League spot if they can recapture that early season consistency.
Right now however, attention switches to the Super Cup where they will meet Barcelona in the semi-final on Wednesday evening. Blaugrana’s season has been a tumultuous one thus far following a problematic summer in which they were demolished by Bayern Munich in the Champions League and rocked by a transfer saga involving star man Lionel Messi.
Eventually, the Argentinian remained at Camp Nou and slowly but surely, his side have started to show the kind of consistency required to challenge for the La Liga title this season. Barca have now gone eight games unbeaten in the league, winning six, and boss Ronald Koeman may be targeting this competition as a means to add some silverware to the cabinet and display his credentials to a sceptical fanbase.
Real Sociedad vs Barcelona: Match Stats
Real Sociedad’s below-par form of late has seen them win just one of their last 12 games, but they have at least found the net in each of their last three matches. Although Barca have gone eight games without tasting defeat, they have conceded in four of those fixtures.
Lionel Messi appeared to be heading out of the exit door at Barcelona in the summer, but the 33 year old has still been at his usual, brilliant best in racking up 14 goals in all competitions so far this term. That total includes the braces scored in his last two outings against Athletic Bilbao and Granada.
