Real Sociedad

Meanwhile, Real Sociedad are currently 6th in the league table and they are unbeaten in the last 5 La Liga matches.

Furthermore, they have kept a clean sheet in the last 7 home matches in the league and they have the quality to make life difficult for the Catalan giants.

However, they have failed to win any of the last six meetings against Barcelona and this will be a difficult encounter for them.

The home side will be desperate to grind out a positive result here.

Alex Remiro; Joseba Zaldua, Igor Zubeldia, Robin Le Normand, Diego Rico; Mikel Merino, Martin Zubimendi, Rafinha; Alexander Isak, Alexander Sorloth, Portu
