Real Sociedad vs Barcelona 21.08.2022
In one of this weekend’s exciting La Liga fixtures, Real Sociedad lock horns against Barcelona. For Xavi’s men, they will be in the hunt for their first 3 points of the season having been held to a barren draw in their opening fixture against Rayo Vallecano. Despite their financial woes, Barca were able to procure key signings this window, indicating their readiness to wrestle the title from 35-time winners Real Madrid.
For Real Sociedad, they will be looking to make it back-to-back wins following their opening day victory over Cadiz. However, they face a daunting task in this tie as they are without a win in their last 8 games against Barcelona. In fact, the only point they earned in one of those 8 games came back in December 2019.
With Barca’s reinforcement this summer and overall dominance of past fixtures, it is hard to picture Sociedad getting anything here. To this end, we are backing Xavi’s men to score at least two goals in this game
Main tip: Barcelona Over 1.5 Goals (go to tip details)
