21:00 Real Sociedad – FC Barcelona

  • The hosts are still in the bottom half of the standings in La Liga (16th position / 3-6-7 17-22), with only two points advantage in front of the teams in the relegation zone.

  • In the matter of fact, Real Sociedad won only once in the last five rounds in this league (1-3-1 5-6), as this victory came against a mediocre team like Elche CF (Real Sociedad – Elche CF 3-0 on 28.11.2014).

  • Additional problem for the home team can be found in the fact, that four important players will miss the upcoming match against FC Barcelona – Joseba Zaldua (defender), Gorka Elustondo (midfielder), David Zurutuza (midfielder / 2 goals) and Carlos Vela (striker / 6 goals), who is actually the top scorer of this team.

  • FC Barcelona, on the other hand, has good chance to return atop of the standings after the surprising defeat of Real Madrid C.F. in Valencia today (Valencia CF – Real Madrid C.F. 2-1 on 04.01.2015) and I doubt, that the Catalans will miss this chance.

  • Luis Enrigue has no new problems with injured or suspended players ahead of this clash, as only Dani Alves (defender) and Thomas Vermaelen (defender) will miss the trip to San Sebastian for the away team.

  • In the matter of fact, the Catalans are without a single victory in the last five visits at “Anoeta” (0-2-3 7-11), but I think, that this time FC Barcelona won’t make mistake.
