Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Match Preview
Barcelona host Real Sociedad for their Matchday 27 clash after dropping the top spot in a 2-0 loss at Real Madrid last week, where Vinicius Junior and Mariano Diaz scored late goals and emphasized their struggles on the road once again. They hope to bounce quickly and return to the winning ways despite a strong challenge from in-form rivals looming.
Blaugrana have struggled to impress away from home but we have seen them more convincing at Camp Nou, where they connected a five-match winning streak in 2020. They outclassed Eibar in a 5-0 win last time out and while they’ve seen a couple of disappointing trips since, we expect Quique Setien’s men in a good mood.
Real Sociedad will be no easy side to outgun, though, and they come into the match with a six-match winning streak across competitions behind them. They beat Real Madrid (3-4) and Mirandes (3-1 on aggregate) in Copa del Rey and secured six points in three La Liga outings along the way, which promises a strong challenge in Barcelona.
La Real kept clean sheets in all of the last three outings too and while it will be tougher to keep it together at the back on the day, we do feel they’ll show off their great team spirits. Still, conceding numbers of goals on the road will be more worrying and we doubt they can snatch a positive result here for the first time since 1995.
We will thus stick with Barcelona to turn an exciting clash their way, hoping to see them overcome a great challenge in front of the home fans and going for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score – which comes at an eye-catching 6/4 with bet365.
We should be in for goals and both sides’ records suggest just as much. We’ve been used to thrilling clashes between the sides lately and we’re now hoping for more of the same, as we go for Over 2.5 Goals FT as more of a banker bet at 4/9 with William Hill.
