Real Sociedad – Barcelona : Preview & Prediction
An entertaining match on this Sunday is the one played by Real Sociedad and Barcelona for a new date in the Santander League.
In my opinion, the team culé part as a favorite because of the collective potential and offensive that has, which has remained in this season. For this reason and knowing that Valverde’s squad has become more balanced since its arrival, we advise you to play a few euros to the simple triumph of the visit. Remember that the Basques are not reliable in Anoeta when they fail too much in defense.
Take into account that Real Sociedad lost 1-0 to Leganés as a visitor, staying with 23 points in the general table. The team is too irregular in its actions, demonstrating it by adding just 1 win in its last 5 presentations. His short-term goal is to take a positive streak that allows him to fight to qualify for the Europa League.
On the other hand, do not forget that the Basque side has added diverse results in Anoeta, after winning 3 matches, matching 3 others and losing the remaining 3 that it played (19 goals in favor and 17 against). He comes from leveling 2-2 against Las Palmas, losing 0-2 to Málaga and beating Sevilla 3-1.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Barcelona thrashed Levante 3-0 at home and continues as a solid leader in the competition. The team is orderly and balanced thanks to the hand of coach Valverde, noticing the collective and dapper game of his midfield. His goal is to win in a court that has always been difficult for him over the years.
And finally we tell you that the “Catalans” have registered positive scores as visitors, after winning 7 games and match the remaining 2 that played (19 goals for and 3 against). They come to win 2 starts, to equal 1-1 with Valencia, to beat Villarreal 0-2 and to score 0-3 against Real Madrid in the derby before the Christmas break.
After having reviewed the details of this match I play for a victory of the visiting team due to the following reasons: First, because Barcelona is a square and offensive even when it has balanced more after the arrival of coach Valverde. Therefore, we should not be surprised if he can manage the times and generate different goal situations. Second because the FC Barcelona team has achieved excellent results as a visitor, showing it even in the derby by beating Real Madrid at the Bernabéu. And third because the Real Sociedad, despite being a nice and offensive eleven, is still irregular and unreliable playing in Anoeta. Faced with this reality and knowing that the Basques leave spaces in the mark, we believe that the Catalans can win even by a goal difference (0-1, 0-2 or 1-2 after the final whistle).
