Real Sociedad vs Barcelona prediction comes before the next La Liga round matchup. This match will take place on Saturday, December 14, at Reale Seguros Stadium in San Sebastian, Spain. In this match preview, we bring you some betting tips and correct score predictions, all based on the analysis of these two Spanish sides.
Real Sociedad vs Barcelona Betting Tips
Barcelona are going into this game after beating Inter mid-week in the Champions League, in a match that took place at San Siro in Milan, Italy. They really had no need to win that match, considering that before that round, they had already secured a place in the knockouts. Nevertheless, Barcelona kept on playing very well and got themselves another win, thus eliminating Inter from the elite European club competition.
The win over the Italian team was Barcelona’s seventh win in a row in all competitions. When it comes to La Liga, they’ve won their previous four matches. This winning run came after they got defeated by Levante in their first match in November.
It seems that the winning form has come at the right moment for them – next Wednesday they’re playing their biggest rival Real Madrid. This is why Barcelona would love to beat Real Sociedad and go into the big game with high confidence. At the same time, Barcelona are probably going to be very careful in the game with Real Sociedad, making sure that no one gets injured or suspended.
There’s another reason why beating Real Sociedad is a must for Barca. If they get three points here, there is a chance that a point gap between them and the second-placed Real Madrid could be created. At the moment, Los Blancos are level pegging with Barca, meaning that if Barca lose in the next week’s clash, they could drop to the second place. But, before that game, Real Madrid travel to Valencia, where they are facing the team of the same name this Sunday.
In the best-case scenario for Barcelona, Real Madrid would drop points in that match, while they would beat Real Sociedad. As they have no influence on the outcome of the clash between Valencia and Real Madrid, the only thing they can do is win against the Basque team on Saturday.
