Barcelona vs Real Sociedad PREVIEW & PREDICTION 20/05/2018


The team culé part as a favorite because of the collective potential that has, which is still important even when the technician Valverde can align a mixed one. For this reason and knowing that at stake is recovering from the blow suffered on the last date, we believe that the simple triumph of the place is attractive to bet. Remember that the Basques are still unreliable in defense, despite having improved something since the departure of coach Eusebio.


The FC Barcelona team is a bit beaten to this match after losing 5-4 against Levante as a visitor and losing their unbeaten run in the Spanish tournament. The team played with several starters, not only Messi. Now his goal is to close the tournament with a victory and bid farewell to Andrés Iniesta. Anyway, he will keep his dapper and explosive midfield style forward.

As a local, Barcelona has added more than positive results, not losing a single game in the entire championship (15 wins and 3 parities, scoring 52 goals and conceding 11 in his fence). He only equaled 2-2 against Celta, 0-0 against Getafe and 2-2 against Real Madrid. He comes from scoring 5-1 against Villarreal in the Nou Camp.

Real Sociedad:

The Basques defeated Leganés 3-2 at home in Anoeta and won 49 points in the general standings. The team has alternated good and bad results in recent weeks, lacking greater balance and security when managing the results. Of course, it is still an eleven on the ball and effective in attack thanks to its football style.

Far from Anoeta, the Real Sociedad has registered not very encouraging as a visitor, standing out for failing a lot in defensive matters (4 wins, 4 parities and 10 falls, making 19 goals and conceding 29 against). His last departures were as follows: 2-1 defeat with Espanyol, 0-0 draw with Betis, 0-1 victory against Las Palmas, 2-0 loss to Málaga and 1-0 defeat against Sevilla.

The last time both teams played was in the first round and the score was favorable for Barcelona in Anoeta (2-4 in January 2018). In the Nou Camp, the Catalans beat the Basques 2-0 in May 2015, 4-0 in November of the same year and 3-2 in April 2017. For the Copa del Rey, they won 5-2 in January of the year past.
