Real Sociedad vs Barcelona
There is no doubt that Barcelona have shown great promise under Xavi, and in the good days they almost looked like a Spanish top team again, but stability and a high level must be shown over an even longer period before we can say Barca is a top team again. The past week has been a wet cloth in the face of Barcelona’s dreams for the season, first a shocking exit in the Europa League to Frankfurt, and most recently a pitiful defeat to the bottom team from Cadiz. Now the question is, do they have what it takes to get back on track and secure 2nd place in La Liga? Of course they have, but it will not be an easy trip to San Sebastian on Thursday night.
Real Sociedad occupy the league’s 6th place, and are only 5 points behind Barca in 2nd place, however, the Basques have played one more match. The home team is showing quite solid form at the moment with just one defeat in the last eight league games. The defeat fell against the leading team from Real Madrid, while it has become Xs against Sevilla and Real Betis, and victories over Osasuna, Mallorca, Alaves, Espanyol and Elche. It looks solid for the Basques, who have kept the clean sheets in six of the last eight matches. The hosts will probably also have to focus on their the well-functioning defensive in this showdown, because there may be a lack of creativity in front with the absence of David Silva and Oyarzabal.
Sociedad’s goal score at home this season is at a strange 12: 6 after 16 games, so the Basques know how to close off at the back. Barca looked somewhat toothless most recently against Cadiz, so the home team should have good opportunities to keep the goal scoring in the showdown down
