In the Copa del Rey, Barcelona were handed a bye to the round of 32 owing to their participation in the Super Cup, but they were made to work extremely hard for their 4-3 win over third-tier Intercity which came after extra-time. Things were a lot more comfortable last time out, however, as Barcelona thrashed the lowest ranked side left in the competition, Ceuta, 5-0.
Real Sociedad have been solid in La Liga this season and look on course for a top four finish, currently third, seven points clear of fifth-placed Villarreal. They are also six points behind Barcelona (though having played a game more) and one of just three teams to reach double figures for wins.
Imanol Alguacil’s men have been thriving in cup competitions too, reaching the last 16 of the Europa League by topping their group ahead of Manchester United and cruising through the Copa del Rey so far. Entering at the first round, Real Sociedad have knocked out Cazalegas, Coria, UD Logrones and Real Mallorca to reach this stage.

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad match stats
Real Sociedad have been in fantastic form since returning from the World Cup break, winning seven straight matches across all competitions. That run will be tested by Barcelona on Wednesday, but the Blaugrana will have to work hard to breach a defence that has conceded just one goal in seven games.
Interestingly, Real Sociedad’s success hasn’t exactly been clean. In fact, La Real have been the dirtiest team in La Liga this season, conceding 294 fouls — more than any other side — with an average of 16.44 per game.
