Preview: Barcelona vs Real Sociedad

Barcelona will play Real Sociedad today, May 13, 2024, at Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys in a La Liga match.


With only one trophy to their name this season, Catalans have nothing to be proud of. Barça lost to Girona in the derby in the previous round by a score of 2:4, and this team is also a direct rival. With one game remaining, the team has a chance to close the gap to two points and reclaim second place.

Next season, Xavi will attempt to make amends, since it was evidently unstable and lacking in character this past one. This was the kind of season where Barcelona struggled to maintain composure under pressure. Maintaining second place will be beneficial for the club’s reputation.

Real Sociedad

This season, Real Sociedad participated in the Champions League, winning their group before falling to PSG in the round of 32. The team’s attempt to finish in the top four of La Liga was unsuccessful; they are currently sixth in the standings, with a 13-point deficit to the first quartet. You also need to defend your spot because Betis is only two points behind you.
Real Sociedad ended a run of three straight games without a win when they defeated Las Palmas 2 to 0 on their field in the last round. Maintaining a spot in the Europa League zone is now the primary objective through the end of the season.
