Barcelona vs. Real Sociedad Predictions and Preview

Barcelona have recovered form after winning just three La Liga games in nine attempts by winning 15 of their last 19, although a much-changed side was held 0-0 at Huesca last time out.

They have kept 13 clean sheets in their last 20 matches as they have reinforced their chances of winning a fourth La Liga title in five seasons and are now nine points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga.

Real Sociedad sit 10th in La Liga but have managed just one victory in their last eight fixtures – although conversely have lost just one of their last five.

Unsurprisingly, the hosts are heavy favourites for this encounter at odds of 1/4 with a Real Sociedad victory priced at 10/1 and the draw available at 11/2.

This fixture tends to produce lots of goals with 22 flying in across the last five meetings, so over 4.5 goals at 21/10 appears to be a solid bet with over 3.5 at 17/20.

A ‘double chance’ on La Real to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 13/5 – keep in mind that the Blaugrana are in Champions League action in the build-up to this game – while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 1/40.

If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 5/6 while Barca to win both halves is at 6/4.

Latest Form

One to watch for Barcelona: Lionel Messi is now up to 38 goals for the campaign (including nine in his last six) as he continues his devastating goalscoring form.

One to watch for Real Sociedad: Mikel Oyarzabal is the main goal threat for the visitors and the 21-year-old already has 13 goals to his name this campaign.

Long shot: Barcelona have 13 clean sheets from their last 20 while La Real have drawn eight of their last 14 games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 28/1.
