19:00, Aug 15 2021
FC Barcelona vs Real Sociedad predictions for this LaLiga clash on Sunday at Camp Nou. Barcelona, going through a tough period with the departure of Lionel Messi, opens the season against a very strong team in Real Sociedad. Will Barcelona be able to take the three points without their star player? Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

FC Barcelona

After 21 seasons, Barça finds themselves without Lionel Messi in their squad, something unthinkable for many people, but the Catalan team’s difficult economic situation has forced Lionel Messi and Barça to part ways.

We will see how things go for Barça without their star, as in the last few seasons, it has been clear just how significant a part the Argentinian played in their team, and that without him the team lack inspiration. Barça’s biggest hope is that Memphis Depay will lead the attack and that Antoine Griezmann will be back to his best.

Last season Barcelona was the fourth best-performing home team in LaLiga.

Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad begin this new season where, in addition to their place in LaLiga and the Copa Del Rey, they are part of the Europa League, thanks to an impressive last season.

We will see if Miker Merino, Mikel Oyarzabal, and Igor Zubeldia, who are among their best players, feature at all in this match, as they return after playing in the Olympic football final.

Real Sociedad suffered one of the biggest thrashings of last season in LaLiga, and it was against Barça, when playing at home, the result was 1-6.

Key Stats:

  • Five wins and one defeat for Barcelona in their pre-season
  • Barcelona have only conceded two goals in six matches in their pre-season
  • Four wins and two defeats for Real Sociedad in their pre-season
  • Real Sociedad have conceded at least one goal in all of their six matches of the pre-season

FC Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Predictions 

After Lionel Messi’s departure, Barça have lost almost all their attacking power. After all, he was able to secure victories when the rest of his team were well below-par. In addition, they are facing Real Sociedad, a quality team who play with a lot of intensity. We think that this game will be evenly-matched, with chances for both teams, but it may ultimately end in a draw.
