Ronald Koeman’s side are unbeaten in their last 17 league matches and have won each of their last eight games on the road, although La Real are strong in their own stadium – losing only to leaders Atletico Madrid there since September.
Real Sociedad vs Barcelona Latest Odds
It was an entertaining clash when these two sides met at Camp Nou in December, with the Basques taking the lead only for Barca to net twice soon after and record a 2-1 victory.
Another win for the Catalans is available at 19/20 (1.95) with bet365, while the hosts can be backed at 13/5 (3.60) and the draw at 14/5 (3.80).
Real Sociedad vs Barcelona Team News
Long-term absentees Sergi Roberto, Ansu Fati and Philippe Coutinho are still missing for the Blaugrana, with Gerard Pique also sidelined.
La Real, meanwhile, have concerns over Nacho Monreal, Martin Zubimendi and Joseba Zaldua, while David Silva missed some training sessions this week and could be a doubt.
Real Sociedad vs Barcelona Preview
This is usually a highly-competitive fixture regardless of location but especially when the sides clash in San Sebastian, where Barca do not have a good record.
Their most recent visit saw them draw 2-2 last season, which means the Blaugrana have won just two of their last 10 league trips to the Reale Arena.
The hosts should be able to contribute to another high-scoring encounter considering they have netted in their last 10 home La Liga clashes against Barca, although the Catalans have scored in their last 12 competitive encounters against the Basque Country team.
Furthermore, only Atletico Madrid and Barca have scored more home goals in La Liga this season than Real Sociedad, while Koeman’s side are the most prolific side on the road this term.
Real Sociedad vs Barcelona Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is priced at 10/11 (1.91) and looks like an unmissable selection given the history of this fixture, having paid out in four of the most recent five Liga renewals.
Backing both teams to score in the first half at 3/1 (4.00) could also be of interest as a value bet, with this landing when the sides met at Camp Nou back in December as well as in last season’s 2-2 draw on this ground.
