Barcelona vs Real Sociedad preview
Barcelona wanted to make a statement after being kicked out of the Champions League and Xavi Hernández’s men seem to have recovered from that huge blow by leading LaLiga standings, winning the Spanish Super Cup, and having big chances of doing something big in the Copa del Rey, where they are facing Real Sociedad in the quarterfinals.

Despite being against the ropes at some point against modest Intercity, the Catalan giants took that game as a lesson and showed no mercy against Ceuta by defeating them 0-5.

Els Blaugranes will play a Copa quarterfinals clash for the 11th time in 13 seasons, and they will fancy their chances, as they will be playing in front of their fans and are living one of their sweetest moments this campaign, with an eleven-game unbeaten run in all tournaments.

Real Sociedad
Imanol Alguacil’s men have been the stand-out team this season in LaLiga, as they are sitting third with 38 points, only three behind Real Madrid, although with one more game played.

Real Sociedad last defeated Mallorca in the Copa del Rey, a victory that sees the Basque side through to the quarter-finals of the competition for the second consecutive year.

However, their head-to-head record against Barça is not favorable: Barcelona recorded in August their seventh successive win over La Real in all tournaments and the visitors have failed to win in 16 games against Barcelona since 2016. And probably the most highlighting fact is that Real Sociedad haven’t won at Camp Nou in the last 31 years.

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Preview
Real Sociedad are currently in third place in the La Liga standings and have consistently punched above their weight so far this season. La Real eased past Rayo Vallecano by a 2-0 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this week.

Barcelona, on the other hand, are at the top of the league table at the moment and have been impressive on the domestic front this season. The Catalan outfit edged Getafe to a 1-0 victory over the weekend and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Barcelona have been in impressive form since their Champions League exit and have shown marked improvement under Xavi. The likes of Ansu Fati and Raphinha have a point to prove and will need to step up this week.
