Barcelona Vs Real Sociedad Live Online Commentary
The Catalonians will attempt to mend their wounds against Real Sociedad after two losses in both La Liga and UEFA Champions League. Barcelona failed to score in the previous two games; at first, they were beaten in Malaga 2–0, only to be swept aside by Juventus with the 3–0 margin. In the match against Malaga, Neymar picked up a red card and a two-game suspension, which rules him out for the upcoming El Classico. However, their home form is very solid – they won the last eight games, winning at both half-time and full-time in 7 out of last 8 matches. As regards other team news: Javier Mascherano is carrying a knock so Pique is likely to be partnered by Jeremy Mathieu in central defence with Umtiti getting a rest. Andres Iniesta is another who could be kept fresh for the UEFA Champions League second leg clash with Juventus.
On the other hand, Real Sociedad finally won the game in the previous round when they beat Sporting Gijon 3–1, but taking into account they have never won a point at Camp Nou, surprising Barcelona on Saturday could be a mission impossible. With three points from the last round, Sociedad are back into the 6th position. In order to reach UEFA Europa League as the season is coming to a close, Real Sociedad must preserve minuscule point lead over Eibar and Athletic Bilbao. Juanmi is suspended so Willian Jose will definitely spearhead the attack with Mikel Oyarzabal set to come in on the wing. Alvaro Odriozola is carrying a knock so Joseba Zaldua or Aritz Elustondo are battling it out to start at right-back.
