Real Sociedad vs Barcelona

No much things to make Real Sociedad optimistic about its ranks before this duel with Barcelona and the only thing on their side is the tradition of their mutual duels. It does not have to mean much, but, psychologically speaking, this duel will help Real Sociedad who is in a pretty bad shape and they were eliminated from the Cup when it was not expected, while they have only one triumph in the previous 07 rounds of the championship.
In two rounds ago, Real Sociedad defeated Sevilla in their field with 3-1 after a solid draw in the Basque derby against Athletic Bilbao, but in the last defeat by Leganes. Coach, Eusebio, kept the same lineup against Sevilla and only Oyarzabal replaced Januzaj, who was injued, but it did not help. Player, Januzaj, is now back, while I.Martinez is injured.


As usuall, FC Barcelona is again dominating the Spanish football, and as things stand now, the team's goal is to get both domestic titles. The championship is practically already won because the second-ranked Athletic Bilbao has 09 points less. Barcelona reached the quarterfinals in the Cup in a very convincing way, after two matches with Celta Vigo. In Vigo, Barcelona played in a combined team and ended with 1-1, but when they played with a much stronger team on Nou Camp, where they defeated Celta Vigo with 5-0. In the championship they made a series of 04 victories in which they scored 12 goals and kept their net clean.
In addition to having the most efficient attack, FC Barcelona also has the best defence in the league. A couple of days ago, the team also reinforced their defence by bringing the Colombian center-back Mina, but the real boost was the arrival of player, Coutinho, who is still injured and will not be able to play. The center-back, Umtiti, is also injured , but while Dembele is fully recovered and Busquets returns after the suspension, so he would try to play a good match against Real Sociedad.

Probable Lineups:
Real Sociedad: Rulli – Odriozola, Raul Navas, D.Llorente, Rodrigues – Zurutuza, Illarramendi, Xabi Prieto – Oyarzabal, Willian Jose, Januzaj
Barcelona: ter Stegen – S.Roberto, Pique, Vermaelen, J.Alba – Busquets, Paulinho, Iniesta – Messi, L.Suarez, Dembele
