Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
All eyes will be on Camp Nou when Barcelona and Real Sociedad face each other in the La Liga derby on Wednesday evening. Thanks to Leo Messi’s beautiful goal Barca defeated Levante on Matchday 18, with the Argentine “magician” helping Ronald Koeman keep his job. The Catalan giants need to keep on raising their form if they are to regain top position in the standings, and, no doubt, they will go for a win in the midweek clash.
Gerard Pique remains in the recovery room, while Pedri and Umtiti are both pushing for a start. La Real, on the other hand, head into the match with a severely-weakened squad, and seeing that both David Silva and Mikel Oyarzabal are out of contention with injuries, we are tempted to put our money on Ronald Koeman’s troops. It has to be noted that Barca defeated Real Sociedad in each of their previous 24 meetings at Camp Nou in all competitions.
