Reason for Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Predictions
Barcelona starts life without Lionel Messi with a home game against Real Sociedad in La Liga on Sunday. Their talisman has left for PSG in a swift move that happened in under one week, and the Spanish giants have to move on fast enough. A 3-0 win over Juventus in the final preseason game may just be the perfect tonic for them to deal with the star’s exit. They go to this game with four wins in the last five matches and haven’t shown signs of missing the Argentine, scoring three or more goals in the four wins. Their only loss in the five games was against Salzburg, and all the five have produced over 2.5 goals. New signing Memphis Depay has settled in well and had a good preseason, while Martin Braithwaite and Riqui Puig have also shown great form in attack. Ousmane Dembele finally shows his proper form and scores important goals. He creates a lot of problems for the opposing defenders. Pedri showed that he is a great reinforcement, he moves well and cooperates with the attackers, all praise for him.
Real Sociedad was the surprise team last season in La Liga, brushing shoulders with the big four before eventually finishing fifth. They go into this game with three wins in their previous five matches and remain a formidable side, especially in attack, having scored in four of their last five games. They have scored two or more goals three times in those five matches, but they have no clean sheet and have lost two of the last three games. They will be happy not to be facing Lionel Messi in this game; in the teams’ previous meeting, Barcelona won 6-1, with Messi scoring two and assisting one. Generally, Real Sociedad hasn’t had a great run against Barcelona – they have no win in the last 13 meetings, losing 10 of them. Alexander Isak is a great player, many teams are interested in this guy, he has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. Portu plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
Barcelona is the favorite in this match, and in the last game of these two rivals, the Catalans celebrated a 6:1 victory.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
