Competition: La Liga Date: Sunday 27th November 2016 Venue: Anoeta Stadium Kick-Off: 19:45 GMT
Real Sociedad are not expected to make any changes to their line-up, with the Basque side looking to maintain their excellent run of form.
Barcelona could recall Gerard Pique after his return from injury and Luis Suarez will also return, having served a suspension.
Denis Suarez will continue to fill the void left by Andres Iniesta’s absence.
Real Sociedad are flying at the moment after winning their last four consecutive matches in La Liga, including defeating Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid. The European hopefuls have a strong record against Barcelona, which they’ll be hopeful of continuing.
Having not won at the Anoeta since the days of Frank Rijkaard, Barcelona have history to overcome if they are to continue pushing Real Madrid for the title. Having drawn with nine-man Malaga last time out, Los Cules will want a more positive performance.
On such a remarkable run of form, Sociedad will be on top of the world and Barcelona will have a lot to do. Whilst the hosts may be a bit short of securing a win, taking a point from the tie would still be a brilliant result.
