Analysis of Real Sociedad Vs Barcelona Betting Tips
The International break and the newly-introduced UEFA Nations League competition take a hold as we get back to action on club football this weekend. Matchday 4 in the La Liga, and defending champions, Barcelona step into the spotlight as they face potential formidable opposition in Real Sociedad.
The league champions would need to let go the brakes and dig deep into their reserves when they travel to the Anoeta Stadium to meet a Real Sociedad side, who commenced with a bright start to the season, but along the way fizzled out, and would be strongly looking to get back to the summit.
La Real started the season strongly with an imposing victory over Villarreal, however, since then things have gone downhill as Sociedad picked up a draw against Leganes, and a visit to the Ipurua Municipal stadium against SD Eibar resorted in a first loss for the Basque club.
The hosts would take full responsibility for giving away the win, after starting the game with a goal scored in the 15th minute through striker, Willian Jose’s penalty, only to concede two goals when Spanish striker, Marc Cardona equalized, and on the verge of full time, Brazilian forward, Charles, notched in the winning goal.
With the potent strike force of Willian Jose and Juanmi, with ex-Manchester United winger, Adnan Januzaj, waiting in the ranks, the hosts would feel they have all that it takes to put a strong front.
Blaugrana, meanwhile, recorded a fantastic win during the weekend against SD Huesca. Going down to a goal in just the 3rd minute of the game, the Catalan club clawed their way back with an inspiring strike from the newly installed captain and club talisman, Lionel Messi, in the 16th minute.
The visitors, however, let loose the reins, as goals from Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic, Jordi Alba, another goal from Messi and a brace from Luis Suarez summed up the scoreline for the evening.
Huesca midfielder, Alex Gallar did get one in for the visitors, but by then it was too late as Barca came away with an 8 – 2 victory.
Blaugrana would go into this match feeling they have to pick up the win and put the goals in, having narrowly lost their league table place to rivals, Real Madrid, in the prior weekend.
