Barcelona vs. Real Sociedad: Recent form, summary of last match, odds, upcoming fixtures
Barcelona (last five league games: WWWWL) has lost all margin for error in the title race, and now with 12 games left, these three points need to be secured professionally. Performance reviews of how Barca attacks in Setien’s first season can be done in the summer, and he will make it to the summer as long as he keeps pace with Zidane and Real Madrid in the title race. If Messi and Co. can’t bounce back and get a win against Sociedad on Saturday, then the title race in Spain may be over.
Real Sociedad (last five league games: WLWWW) has already seen success this season, just two points off the Champions League spots (with one game in hand) and a spot secured in the 2020 Copa del Rey Final. A win over Bilbao in the Final would be the fifth major trophy for Real Sociedad, and the club’s first since winning Copa del Rey in 1986-1987. Qualification for the UCL could arguably be more beneficial to the club, and a win at Camp Nou would give Sociedad both the points and the confidence to finish in fourth place this May.
According to the DraftKings Sportsbook oddsmakers (as of March 6):
- Barcelona, -275 (wager $275 to win $100)
- Real Sociedad, +650 (wager $100 to win $650)
- Draw, +425 (wager $100 to win $425)
Barcelona: Saturday, March 14 at Mallorca (La Liga)
Real Sociedad: Tuesday, March 10 at Eibar (La Liga); Sunday, March 15 vs. Osasuna (La Liga)
