Real Sociedad vs Barcelona: Predictions

Having exited the Champions League, focus for Barcelona will now shift to domestic affairs, where they face a Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao next month, but their immediate attention is on Real Sociedad this weekend and trying to keep the pressure on table-toppers Atletico Madrid.

Despite a stuttering start to Ronald Koeman’s tenure, the Blaugrana have hit the right notes in La Liga and are now just four points below Atleti in the title race, with the Catlan club unbeaten since early December and on a current tear of four straight wins.

For Real Sociedad, they made a blistering start to the campaign, but that early form has since fizzled out, with the club plateauing just outside the top four, with Imanol Alguacil’s men now nine points adrift of fourth-placed Sevilla and looking over their shoulders at the chasing pack, with Real Betis just three points behind.

Barca got the better of the Basque club in the reverse fixture at the Camp Nou, but Alguacil will be desperate to avenge that defeat, particularly as he is yet to taste victory over the Blaugrana across his own managerial career, the club he has faced the most times in all competitions without ever winning.

Real Sociedad vs Barcelona: Match Stats

This is a match that is almost guaranteed goals, as Barca have notched the most in the division (61), and Real Sociedad the fourth-most (43), but it is the former who are enjoying a particularly fruitful period at the minute, and look destined to close the gap even further and really put the squeeze on Atleti

Koeman’s men naturally play a press-and-possess game, as is the Barca way, with a heavy emphasis on stretching the pitch and overloading the channels. As such, Barca have racked up more corners this season than any other club (174), and will be expected to attack the flanks once again for this contest.

Then, they met in the Supercopa de Espana semi-finals, with Barca securing a 3-2 win on penalties after a tense 1-1 draw. They would go on to lose the final 3-2 to Athletic Bilbao.
