Barcelona Welcomes Real Sociedad
All eyes will be on Camp Nou when Barcelona take on La Liga leaders Real Sociedad. The two sides will face each other in the La Liga derby on Wednesday evening. Thanks to Leo Messi’s goal Barcelona went pass Levante on Matchday 13.
Ronald Koeman who is facing a very tough time with club had his job saved by the Argentine goal. The Catalan giants need to keep on raising their form if they are to regain top position in the standings, and, no doubt, they will go for a win in the midweek clash.
Gerard Pique remains in the recovery room, while Pedri and Umtiti are both pushing for a start. La Real, on the other hand, head into the match with a severely-weakened squad, and seeing that both David Silva and Mikel Oyarzabal are out of contention with injuries, we are tempted to say the visitor will leave Camp Nou without any point.
Real Madrid who is joint top with Real Sociedad did well yesterday to beat Atletic Bilboa courtesy of Karim Benzema’s two goals to help them win 3-1 which mean Real Sociedad will be eager to play out their all to grab all three points.
According to records Barcelona has defeated Real Sociedad in each of their previous 24 meetings at Camp Nou in all competitions.
