Team News

Real Sociedad
Barcelona
  • Imanol Alguacil will remain without a quarter of injured players when Barcelona make the trip to San Sebastian.
  • Barcelona have been boosted by a number of players returning from injury, and both Pedri and Frenkie de Jong could feature here, albeit for around 20 minutes.
  • The likes of Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha could come back into the starting XI here, having come off the bench in last weekend's Clasico.

Prediction

  • After defeat to Atletico Madrid, Real Sociedad are now three games unbeaten, and claimed a point away to Rayo Vallecano last weekend.
  • La Real head into this one in fifth place, and could close the five-point gap to Barcelona to two points with a crucial victory here.
  • Barcelona's unbeaten start to La Liga came to an end at home to rivals Real Madrid last season, when a brace from Jude Bellingham sealed all three points in stoppage time.
  • The defending champions are already four points behind the pace-setters in Real and Girona, and will be aiming to swiftly get back to winning ways here.
  • Xavi's side, however, could be in for a tricky evening at the Reale Arena.
