Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Barcelona is one of the strongest contenders in La Liga and has sufficient squad strength to support their cause in the middle. However, the Catalans have suffered a series of injuries to their key players. The host is not likely to get the service of Ansu Fati, Dembele, and Pique for the upcoming match.
Real Sociedad is also caught in the injury trap this season. One of their most devastating injuries is of the former Manchester City player, D. Silva. He was a key instrument in placing the away team on the top of the table and his absence has resulted in consecutive draws.
Based on these stats, we can expect both teams to find the back of the net. Four of Barcelona’s recent five home matches have seen more than 3 goals in each. Hence, the tip for over 2.5 goals will also come in handy for the punters from the goals area.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters. Messi and his Co. will try to build on their last win in the clash. The skipper had the lone goal in the last match and can be counted on to take his team through another home win in their schedule.
