Barcelona v Real Sociedad Preview, Primera La Liga, Tuesday 24th September 2013

Barcelona moved to the top of the Primera La Liga on sunday night after recording a convincing 4-0 win away against Rayo Vallecano with Lionel Messi taking an unusual back seat after fellow striker Pedro smashed in a hat-trick in that game and that result will now have everyone involved at the club extremely confident of being able to retain their La Liga Title this season.

Real Sociedad fought out a 0-0 draw at home against Malaga in their weekend fixture, that draw became their 3rd in five games played and showed that it is going to take a special team to beat them in their league matches this season and despite being huge under-dogs to win this game on tuesday night, they certainly have the fight and determination within their squad to make Barcelona work extremely hard to keep their 100% record in tact.

Barcelona v Real Sociedad Team News

Barcelona Team News:

Xabi Alonso has now returned back to training having fully recovered from a recent injury, but might only make the subs bench for this game as he still lacks match fitness. Jordi Alba, Ibrahim Afellay, Carlos Puyol and Joan Cuenca are unavailble for coach Gerardo Martino for this one as each player continues to recover from respective injuries.

Real Sociedad Team News:

Gorka Elustondo, Diego Ifran and Esteban Granero are unavaible for the visitors as they remain out injured. Expect coach Jagoba Arrasate to lineup with a 4-2-3-1 formation with Carlos Vela leading the attack up front.

Barcelona v Real Sociedad Match Betting Odds Market.

Barcelona are the clear odds on favourites to win this game at a current best price of just 1/7 with Betfred (£10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers) available, which is too short to be classed as any kind of value here.

The Draw has not been a regular outcome when these two sides have met in the past, but Real Sociedad are proving a tough nut to crack this season and would be extremely happy to return home with a point from this game and at a current best price of 15/2 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers) I can see some shrewd punters getting on this as a cover bet.

Real Sociedad have been one of only a few sides to beat Barcelona in the last couple of years and they will obviously fancy their chances of repeating last season’s 3-2 victory against them at the Estadio Municipal de Anoeta, but their current odds of 20/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) suggest they have little to no chance of achieving this on tuesday night.

Barcelona v Real Sociedad Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Barcelona are scoring goals like it’s going out of fashion at the moment and with Pedro stepping up to mark and scoring a hat-trick at the weekend, they have two in-form strikers that are capable of ripping defences to pieces and it’s difficult to see Real Sociedad keeping them out for too long in this one.

Obviously no value to be had taking a home win here on the coupon and as such we are forced to look elsewhere for some value. The goal stats suggest at least a few goals to be scored, which makes perfect sense considering the amount of goals Barcelona have scored in recent matches, so betting markets like Anytime Goal Scorer, Total Goals and Over 3 Goals could be the answer here in what looks likely to be another victory for the defending league champions.
