Real Sociedad – Barcelona, La Liga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR REAL SOCIEDAD - BARCELONA
Sociedad are enjoying their season to the fullest. The team is still in the top 4, and we will soon reach the middle of the campaign, which is very commendable for the Algulacil boys. The good thing is that the team does not have any big stars to rely on and when in such situations they are sold, a crisis occurs. This is not the case with Sociedad. Everyone plays very cooperatively here, and the team strikers have a relatively equal number of goals.
Barcelona beat Inter in the Champions League as a guest this week as most Catalans players were reserves. Barca are in first place with 2 goals better goal difference in La Liga and it seems that very soon they and Real Madrid will separate from the other top and chase the title, as it always was. Barca have 4 straight wins in the Championship, but so far all their problems have come in the away games.
Expert view : Barcelona have always made it difficult in the visits of Sociedad. This was a tradition for the Catalans until 2016. Barca didn’t have a win at Estadio Anoeta for 8 games, but in the last 3 seasons recorded three wins, which were not without goals, however. Real have a really strong attack and with these problematic Barca’s defense, we think that they are very likely to score, and the Catalans are expected to score for sure. Prediction – BTTS at 1.56.
Sociedad have scored at least one goal in all their games at home in La Liga
Barcelona have not scored a goal in La Liga in only 2 games this season
