The Blaugrana crashed out of the Europa League quarter-finals last week after a 3-2 loss at home to Eintracht Frankfurt sealed a 4-3 aggregate defeat. They could only follow that up with a frustrating, shock 1-0 defeat against Cadiz at the Camp Nou. Sociedad won’t show them any mercy, however, as they sit sixth in La Liga, unbeaten in their last five and still well in the hunt for a Champions League spot.
Real Sociedad team news
David Silva was sent off at the end of Sociedad’s 0-0 draw with Real Betis and will serve a suspension here, adding to a lengthy absentee list already containing Carlos Fernández, Mikel Oyarzabal, Ander Barrenetxea and Nacho Monreal.
Real Sociedad predicted XI: Remiro; Gorosabel, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Rico; Portu, Zubimendi, Merino; Rafinha; Isak, Sorloth.
Barcelona team news
Xavi can welcome back defender Ronald Araujo from suspension but remains without long-term absentees Pedri, Samuel Umtiti, Moussa Wague and Sergi Roberto. Sergino Dest picked up a knock late on against Cadiz and his status remains unclear.
Ansu Fati and Gerard Pique are both nearing returns for Barcelona, though Xavi has not confirmed their availability for this match. The Spanish coach did, however, lay into his players following their humiliating home loss to Cadiz last time out, calling for an immediate response in this match.
“We are angry, the players first, because we missed a golden chance to separate ourselves from those in the fight for the Champions League places and also to [keep] fighting for LaLiga, which we’ve practically said goodbye to now,” Xavi told reporters.
“I am annoyed and we have to be self-critical, myself first, as the coach. We’re playing to be in the Champions League, that’s why I am so angry. There was a lack of desire and determination. It’s been a really bad week and we have to turn things around as soon as possible.
“The players are p***ed off. I’ve tried to encourage them after the match, but we must compete better. We have to look at what we have done wrong in defence and attack. On Thursday we have another final against Real Sociedad.”
Barcelona predicted XI: Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Garcia, Lenglet, Alba; De Jong, Busquets Gavi; Dembele, Depay, Aubameyang.
