Primera División: Barcelona vs Real Sociedad

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first match on Saturday in Primera División, Barcelona host Real Sociedad at Nou Camp.

Barcelona play amazing this season and after 12 rounds they are standing at the top of the table with 30 points. Home side smashed Real Madrid last week 0-4, while on Wednesday Barcelona humiliated AS Roma 6-1 and qualified, as 1st in Group E, in the next stage of the UEFA Champions League. Leo Messi back in the squad after injury and scored two goals against AS Roma and without any doubt he will be fully motivated to continue with good performance in Primera. Home side is a big favorite to win this game and every result except home win would be a big surprise. Barca have managed to win 8 of their last 9 matches in all competitions (8-1-0).

Real Sociedad didn’t make the best start this season and after 12 rounds they are standing in the middle of the table. After two defeats in a row, visitors have managed to beat Sevilla in the previous round. That was their 3rd win this season in Primera División. It will be very hard for Sociedad to make positive result against mighty Barcelona, but they have nothing to lose and will do their best in order to hit the net at least once. Interesting fact about Real Sociedad is that they are playing better away, than upfront their supporters.

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad injuries and suspensions

Home side miss Sergi Roberto who picked up an injury against AS Roma, while Javier Mascherano is still doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without suspended Asier Illarramendi, while Jonathas and David Zurutuza are both injured.

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad possible lineups

Barcelona: Bravo, Piqué, Alves, Mascherano, Alba, Rakitic, Busquets, Iniesta, Suárez, Neymar, Messi.
Real Sociedad: Rulli, Gonzalez, Martinez, Berchiche, Elustondo, Bruma, Prieto, Pardo, Canales, Bergara, Agirretxe.

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Prediction

Barcelona have very strong squad and they are big favorites to win this game. Real Sociedad have already showed that they can play very good against Barca, beating them twice in the last three matches between these two teams. I expect an open match between Barcelona vs Real Sociedad and many goals in both nets.

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Betting Tip: over 3.5 goals @ 1.62 (Bet365)
