The Royals can boast of an intimidating record at home this season as they are undefeated in 12 of their 14 home matches so far. The two defeats have come against Real Madrid and Sevilla without scoring, but they defeated Atletico Madrid and held Barcelona to a draw in the LaLiga clash.

Barcelona thrashed Las Palmas 5-0 at Camp Nou this weekend to register their fifth home win in a row in all competitions. They are currently third in the LaLiga table, with a 2 point gap against Real Madrid. It will be more than scary if you look at their scoring record at home, which stand at 23 goals from those 5 matches.

On the contrary, Luis Enrique managed side has struggled while playing away from home this season. They are without a win n in the last two trips and managed only 1 win from the last 5.

Real Sociedad vs Barcelona: Head-to-head stats

As expected, Barcelona have a formidable h2h recorded against Sociedad at Camp Nou. But they have failed time and time again in their trips to the Anoeta as they haven’t won here since 2007. Sociedad are unbeaten in their last 8 home matches against Barcelona, with 5 wins and 3 draws. Their lone meeting this Spanish LaLiga this season was at Anoeta which resulted in a 1-1 draw.

Real Sociedad vs Barcelona: Prediction

With a good h2h record at home, we can expect Real Sociedad to be confident to get a result here. Barcelona are struggling in away games and we have seen this in their 2-1 defeat against Athletic Bilbao in the first leg of the Copa Del Rey round of 16 clash. Therefore, the recommended pick for this game is to back Sociedad to stay unbeaten.
