Sociedad v Barcelona Predictions & Betting Odds – 15th September 2018

Catalans to extend winning streak

Barcelona

Sociedad v Barcelona Betting Preview – La Liga 15th September 3.15pm

It hasn’t been a season of early consistency for Sociedad so far as they have collected just the one win. This is their first home game of the new season and it’s a big one too as they play host to the reigning La Liga champions Barcelona. The Catalans have come out of the gates firing on all cylinders, having won all three of their games and the goals have been flying in. Read our predictions for the Sociedad v Barcelona fixture.

Sociedad v Barcelona Betting Tips

Real Sociedad start their home campaign of the La Liga season with this one. Games don’t come much tougher that this though as they welcome Barcelona. It’s hard to judge what Sociedad may come up with as they haven’t played at home yet. So that makes this a little bit tricky to size up. We can look at what they have produced on the road though and that is a W1 D1 L1 record. Defensively they haven’t been great, having shipped five goals in three games. It’s not reasonable to imagine that they will shut out Barcelona on the weekend.

However, we are going to push for them to get on the scoreboard and with that in mind for our Real Sociedad v Barcelona predictions, both teams to score is at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on September 12th, 2018 at 9:04 pm). On home soil in the league, last season Sociedad posted a W10 D3 L6 record but they lost three of their games on home soil against the top-four finishers (W1 against Atletico Madrid). It is a tough thing to try and stand up to Barcelona. At least Real Sociedad are on an eleven match scoring streak in the league at home.

Barcelona are just running nicely at the moment with three wins from three to open their title defence with. Just before the international break, they fired off eight goals past the newly promoted Huesca at the Nou Camp. It was a ruthless second half having been 3-2 up at the break. They’ve only been out on the road once where they got themselves a 1-0 win at Valladolid. Real Sociedad are likely going to be more defensively frail and a Barcelona -1.25 Asian Handicap is at 9/10 odds* (betting odds taken on September 12th, 2018 at 9:04 pm). Lionel Messi has four goals so far this season but all four of those have been at home. Ousmane Dembele has their only away goal this term.

Sociedad v Barcelona Head to Head

Barcelona took wins in both league meetings against Sociedad last season and they are on a five-match winning streak against them in all competitions and are unbeaten in six. Barcelona have won all but one of their previous home games against Sociedad in all competitions (D1). The Catalans have scored thirteen goals in their last four games against Real Sociedad.

Sociedad v Barcelona Predictions

It’s a big game for Socided who are opening their home account so there will be a great atmosphere. However, Barcelona are into their groove early in the season and we can see them getting the three points away from home. A Barcelona -1.25 Asian Handicap looks a pretty sharp option for our Sociedad v Barcelona predictions.
