Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Prediction and Betting Preview, 07 Mar 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0
Barcelona vs Real SociedadBarcelona will be looking to bounce back from last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Real Madrid when they welcome Real Sociedad in La Liga on Saturday evening.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 27
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona)
The loss at the Bernabeu saw Barca relinquish first spot in the table to Los Blancos. Sociedad, meanwhile, have won their last three in Spain's top flight to rise into sixth position.

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.

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Team News

Barca have not been without their problems this season, but they are very much in the title race heading into the home straight, sitting just one point off division leaders Real Madrid on the same number of matches.

Quique Setien's side would have been looking to strengthen their grip on first when they travelled to the Bernabeu last weekend, but the home side managed to record a two-goal victory.

The loss in the Spanish capital followed a 1-1 draw away to Napoli in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash on February 25, meaning that there is work to be done if the Spanish champions are to progress to the quarter-finals of the European Cup.

There is enormous pressure on Lionel Messi to ensure that Barca finish the season strongly, and there is no question that the Catalan giants will be desperate to return to winning ways this weekend.

Incredibly, the reigning champions have won their last 19 home games against Sociedad in all competitions, while they have been victorious in 19 of their last 20 home matches in Spain's top flight.

Sociedad, though, will bring serious form into this contest. Indeed, the Basque outfit have won four of their last five in Spain's top flight, including their last three against Athletic Bilbao, Valencia and Real Valladolid.

They have only conceded once in their last three matches, meanwhile, and currently sit sixth in the table, just two points behind fourth-placed Getafe as the race for the Champions League heads for the home straight.

Sociedad are only actually three points off third-placed Sevilla, and a victory at Camp Nou on Saturday evening is certainly not beyond Imanol Alguacil 's side considering their form.

Barca have also only kept three clean sheets in their 11 competitive matches under Setien, and Sociedad have the firepower to cause all sorts of issues in this match with Portu, Mikel Oyarzabal , Willian Jose and Alexander Isak all among the goals during the 2019-20 campaign.

Alguacil's team also booked their spot in the final of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday night as a 1-0 success over Mirandes in the second leg of their semi-final saw them progress 3-1 on aggregate.

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Predictions

This is threatening to be another very, very difficult game for Barca. Sociedad will arrive full of purpose having won their last six matches in all competitions, but we just fancy the hosts to record a narrow victory.
