Real Sociedad – Barcelona
Real Sociedad faces Barcelona at the Reale Arena in San Sebastian. This is a game from the second round of Spanish La Liga. Stay with us and our football predictions today for this match.
Real Sociedad had a winning start of their 2022/23 season. The Basques paid a visit to Cadiz where they enjoyed a difficult 1-0 win. The summer signing Takefusa Kubo scored the only goal in the game in the first half. The Japanese midfielder could make a big season with Sociedad as we all know how talented he is. It’s a pleasure to watch him alongside David Silva on the pitch.
For Real Sociedad it was very important to keep Alexander Isak in the squad. The Swedish striker was once again a wanted man, but he chose to stay in San Sebastian. Last season he scored just 6 goals in La Liga, but now he’s ready to prove he’s better than this.
Barcelona surprisingly started their season with a failure. The Catalans hosted Rayo Vallecano at the Spotify Camp Nou, but only got a point with a 0-0 draw. Los Cules created some chances, but Rayo’s goalkeeper Stole Dimitrievski made important saves.
Barcelona’s captain Sergio Busquets is suspended for the next game and most likely Miralem Pjanic will replace him in the line-up. At the same time Frenkie de Jong is expected to replace Gavi who didn’t perform well against Rayo.
Ansu Fati started from the bench against Rayo while Ferran Torres remained an unused sub for Barca. It should tell you how much depth Xavi has with all the new signings. At the same time Robert Lewandowski will look for his first goal for Blaugranas at the Reale Arena.
That’s our football predictions today for the La Liga clash between Real Sociedad and Barcelona. Can the Catalans record a first win for the season? Let’s see.
