Real Sociedad and Barcelona are clashing at Estadio Nuevo Arcangel in the Spanish Super Cup semifinals.
Sociedad is not playing well, and they are struggling on both ends. In the LaLiga standings, Sociedad is in 5th place with 30 points, and they are far from the top where they used to reside earlier in this season. in their latest LaLiga game, Sociedad was playing against Sevilla on the road, and they have had only 40% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 77% of the correct passes. Sociedad was losing 3 times in this game, and even though they were able to come back two times, they failed to do so a third time. Sociedad has lost this game 3-2. Sangalli, Illarramendi, Oyarzabal, and David Silva are all injured, and they will miss this game. Sociedad is a talented team, and they can play fantastic soccer, but they are in bad form, and that soccer is nowhere to be seen. This competition is being played on one game only, and Sociedad will need to be at the very top of their game if they want to go through Barcelona.
Barcelona is looking better and better with every game, and they are now on a 3-game winning streak in LaLiga. During this streak, Barcelona has scored 8 goals while conceding only 2 goals. Barcelona is now in 3rd place in the LaLiga standings with 34 points, and they are getting closer to the top, where they belong. Offensively, Barcelona is the best team in the league, and Messi is finally scoring like he used to. In their latest LaLiga game, Barcelona was playing against Granada on the road, and they were the dominant team with massive 73% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 1 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and high 92% of the correct passes. This was a fantastic game for Barcelona, and with 2 goals from Messi, and 2 goals from Griezmann, Barcelona has won this match 0-4. Fati, Pique, Roberto, Coutinho, and Araujo are all injured, and they will miss this game. All of Barcelona’s top players have been confirmed to travel for this game, but we won’t know the lineup until before the game. The good news for Barcelona is that Lenglet is back, and whoever is in the starting lineup will do well because most of Barcelona’s players are in great form at this time.
Barcelona hasn’t lost in their last 8 games, while Real Sociedad hasn’t beaten Barcelona since 2016. This game is being played at a neutral venue, but Barcelona is in much better form here, and they are scoring a ton of goals. Sociedad is a good team, but they are far from their best form. I’m taking Barcelona and goals.
