Both teams are vying for Champions League positions, with Barcelona holding a slim lead over Real Madrid in La Liga, and Real Sociedad hanging on to fourth.

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NBCSN (where many Premier League matches appear), NFL Network, and local channels.

(The latter also includes NFL RedZone.)

Spanish-speaking viewers have quite a few options. For bilingual families, you might consider the Español: Best of Spanish TV package for either Sling Orange or Sling Blue for 24/7 specialty channel LaLiga TV and beIN SPORTS Connect: Channels 4-9, which features matches from La Liga, Ligue 1 and Copa del Rey, among others. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial.

Barcelona vs. Real Sociedad: Preview, recent form, upcoming fixtures

Barcelona (last five La Liga matches: LWWWW) coasted to a 5-2 win over Mallorca last week for its fourth-straight La Liga win and got the crucial 2-1 midweek win over Inter Milan on Carles Perez and Ansu Fati goals. That allowed Dortmund to slide into the second Group F spot and dislodged Inter from the competition altogether. Barca now awaits its Round of 16 opponent in Monday’s draw, followed by a huge Wednesday match over its implacable rivals.

Real Sociedad (last five La Liga matches: WDLWD) drew with Valladolid on Sunday to drop two points in what has been a tight race but is becoming a three-way race between Barca, Real Madrid, and Sevilla. Real Sociedad could get back into the title race with a huge statement win at home on Saturday, while a loss creates a definite divide between Champions League and Europa League places.

Upcoming fixtures

Barcelona, Wednesday, Dec. 18 vs. Real Madrid (La Liga); Saturday, Dec. 21 vs. Alaves (La Liga)

Real Sociedad, Thursday, Dec. 19 at Becerril (Copa del Rey); Sunday, Dec. 22 at Osasuna (La Liga)
