[Spanish La Liga] Real Sociedad VS FC Barcelona 15.1 [Copy Link]

Real Sociedad: The Basques are in trouble ( Recent Form: L L D W L )
Trainer Eusebio is sitting on the bench at Real Sociedad for the hundredth time on Sunday evening, but there is not a party mood at all. After a promising start, the Basques have meanwhile collapsed to the right-hand row and the embarrassing elimination in the Copa del Rey against third division Lleida has arrived very hard in the Anoeta. Eusebio therefore feels the pressure on his position is increasing: 'I know that as a trainer I am dependent on the results. We are indeed very volatile this season, but I still have full confidence in my players. ' However, it is still questionable to what extent he still enjoys the trust of the board, which allegedly has old player Javi Gracia as a possible successor. A good result against FC Barcelona is exactly what Real Sociedad needs at the moment. Outdoors, blue-whites are almost always without a chance against the Catalans, but in their own Anoeta they are usually their male. The last five encounters in La Liga in the Anoeta yielded two draws and three home victories. Incidentally, the final official duel in San Sebastian resulted in a Catalan win. In January last year in the Copa del Rey, Neymar shot his team from the penalty spot to a 0-1 victory.

FC Barcelona: The Catalans are battling through ( Recent Form: W W D W W )
There is no size this season on FC Barcelona. The Catalans score incredibly easy, are extremely solid in the back and have a street-length advantage over the competition in La Liga. The football machine of trainer Ernesto Valverde is in full swing, with Celta de Vigo (5-0 win) as the most recent victim. Ivan Rakitic, however, keeps both feet firmly on the ground: "At the moment we have not won anything yet." The already impressive selection of FC Barcelona got this week in the person of Philippe Coutinho a new clapper. The Brazilian playmaker is still injured and will therefore have to postpone his debut for the Blaugrana. Also co-top purchase Ousmane Dembele will most likely remain on the side in the Anoeta. The French wingspits were allowed to attack Celta de Vigo on Thursday-evening, but are still not completely fit. Valverde has already announced that he does not want to take any risks and will therefore probably wait until he has recovered completely. Nevertheless, FC Barcelona will have to be in top shape on Sunday evening to deal with feargegner Real Sociedad. It remains remarkable how much trouble the Catalans have in recent years with the blues, you would almost say that it is between the ears. Barça looks much more mature this season than in previous years. There is more balance in the team, for the first time in years the Catalans also have an eye for their defense. Lionel Messi is of course in absolute top form. Also against Celta de Vigo, the Argentinian ball virtuoso with two goals and a wonderful assist was elusive again. Valverde pulled him to the side after an hour of playing, so in terms of fatigue it will turn out on Sunday night.

After all, you can approach this match in two different ways. For example, based on the mutual results of recent years, you could opt for a good result from Real Sociedad. However, you can also look at the recent form, which obviously is to the advantage of FC Barcelona. I choose the golden mean and choose the bet BTS & FC Barcelona wins. Real Sociedad has almost always scored against the Catalans in recent years and with nineteen goals in barely nine home games this season is also very accurate. The big problem of the Basques, however, is the weak defense, because with seventeen counter-matches in nine home games, only the last team Las Palmas does it even worse. Messi and associates probably know what to do with this.
