Barcelona vs. Real Sociedad Prediction and Match Analysis

After a distasteful El Clasico defeat, title contenders Barcelona will be looking to redeem their title run as they host side Real Sociedad at Camp Nou. The match schedules for 7th March with kickoff at 20:30 GMT.

Barcelona recorded an el Clasico defeat in their last encounter with rivals the Los Blancos. The loss saw the side fall down to second place in La Liga with 55 points. The loss marked the first loss with Coach Setien in charge. Despite several open chances, the Catalans were unable to seal past Courtois.

There has been unease at the camp with reports of a falling out of players with the assistant coach. Sarabia was not shy to voice his discomfort over the poor performance of the side during the el Clasico.
