This is action from the Spanish Super Cup on Wednesday night, and it’s a semi-final match.

That’s the format of the competition, with the La Liga winners and runners up joining the two Copa del Rey finalists in the mini-tournament.

Barcelona were runners up in the league last season and they will be facing Real Sociedad for a place in the final.

Real Sociedad Preview – Can the Cup finalists prevail?

The 2021 Copa del Rey final isn’t played until April this year. But Real Sociedad will face Athletic Bilbao in it.

There have been some recent struggles for form by Real Sociedad after such a strong start to the season.

They have taken just the one victory in their last twelve games across all competitions (D7 L4).

So they are certainly not running as hot as they were.

On the weekend they suffered a league defeat away at Sevilla and that leaves Sociedad with one clean sheet in their last eight fixtures in all competitions.

For this Super Cup semi-final, Real Sociedad are the 10/3 underdogs* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT, Tuesday 12th January).

That lack of winning form really is the stand out stat in all of this.

During that sequence, they met Barcelona in league action at the Nou Camp in mid-December and lost 2-1.

The head to head record that Sociedad has against Barcelona isn’t too inspiring, to be frank.

They have lost nine of their last ten fixtures played against the Catalans and are winless in eleven games against them.

So this does look to be a mighty task ahead of them on Wednesday night but we would expect some goals to fly around.

Over 2.5 goals is a 4/7 option for football betting on this game* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT, Tuesday 12th January).

Seven of the last nine meetings between the two clubs in all competitions have gone above that mark, so there has been a trend.

Real Sociedad have won the Spanish Super Cup once before, way back in 1982.


Barcelona Preview – Barca have the momentum going to win this

Barcelona have won their last three matches played so they appear to be building up a head of steam.

Those were all-league wins and they have tallied eight goals in their last three games.

So their goal-scoring average is up.

Barcelona have netted at least two goals in five of their last seven fixtures in all competitions now.

The Catalans are a quote of 7/10 odds-on in the match outright for this cup semi-final* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT, Tuesday 12th January).

We would also note Lionel Messi in a good goal scoring mood at the moment as well.

He has scored two goals in each of his last two games.

The Lionel Messi anytime goalscorer option is at 8/13* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT, Tuesday 12th January).

Home and away in all competitions, Barcelona are undefeated in their last eight fixtures, winning six of the games in that sequence.

Barcelona are the better of the two sides on paper at the moment when looking over the current form.

Plus there is their domineering head to head record over Real Sociedad to boot.

Because Real Sociedad have drawn a lot of their recent games and considering the 2-1 scoreline that Barca beat them by in December, we do expect another tight margin.

A Barcelona 1-goal winning margin for the Super Cup semi-final is at 11/4* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT, Tuesday 12th January).

The winner of the fixture will meet either Real Madrid or Athletic Bilbao in the Super Cup Final on January 17th in Seville.


Real Sociedad vs Barcelona Betting Advice

This game is being played on neutral territory in Cordoba so there’s no home advantage for Sociedad to lean on a bit.

They just have not been winning matches recently so we can’t get there to support an upset in the match outright.

Our tip football betting tip for the game is that Barcelona 1 goal winning margin option at 11/4* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT, Tuesday 12th January).


Key Facts – Real Sociedad vs Barcelona Betting Tip

  • Real Sociedad have lost five of their last six games against Barca
  • Real Sociedad are winless in their last eleven against Barcelona
  • Barcelona are undefeated in their last eight fixtures


Barcelona, inspired by Lionel Messi mostly, have been well among the goals recently and they have scored at least three goals in three of their last four fixtures.

So we see them coming up trumps at the end of the day. Because they aren’t terrific at the back, we would support a high scoring game.

Both teams to score warrants some consideration, therefore a Barcelona To Win & BTTS option at 2/1 appeals for extended value* (odds recorded 19:15 GMT, Tuesday 12th January).
