Real Sociedad v Barcelona Prediction & Betting Tips – 14th January 201811th January 2018 / lee
Real Sociedad v Barcelona La Liga, 14th January 7.45pm
Real Sociedad are hovering around mid-table in La Liga and they have really been struggling to find any kind of winning momentum this season. But they did recently land a big home success over Sevilla on home soil and have a good unbeaten stretch of home form going against Barcelona in the league. Will they be able to prevent Barcelona from winning their fifth straight game in the Spanish top flight though? Barcelona are 2/5 to get the win, with the draw at 15/4 and Real Sociedad at 6/1* (Betting Odds taken January 8th, 2018 at 11.11pm)
Real Sociedad v Barcelona Betting Tips
Going into a game against Barcelona you will have been hoping to carry better form than just one win in your last seven. That is where Real Sociedad are at right now them with a W1 D3 L3 record played in their last seven top-flight games. That win did come at home though just before the winter break as they took down Sevilla in what was a surprise win for them. They have won three times at home this season and they have scored exactly three goals in each of those wins strangely. But they have also failed to score in three of their last four games and lost out at Leganes last weekend as La Liga resumed. They have rattled off plenty of goals this season on home soil as they average over two goals per game and 78% of their home fixtures have gone over 2.5 while almost 70% have gone over 3.5 goals. So those are good options in the William Hill over/under 2.5 goals market to consider.
You wouldn’t expect them to be keeping a clean sheet in this one but both teams to score at William Hill may actually churn up good value at 1/2* (Betting Odds taken January 9th, 2018 at 5.25 pm). In their last four home games against the Catalans, Real Sociedad are W2 D1 L1 against Barcelona so it’s not actually that bad of a record. All four of those games were under 2.5 goals incidentally. Last season overall they met four times and Barcelona won three of those, drawing the other, scoring ten goals across those four matches against Sociedad. Real Sociedad are actually W5 D2 L0 in their last seven home games in La Liga against Barcelona which is a fantastic record. But you would have to be a little worried about La Real’s lack of form at the moment and the fact that Barcelona are going pretty well right now. Barcelona will be defending their unbeaten form for the season in the Spanish top flight as they make the trip to the Anoeta.
Barcelona are holding a W7 D2 record from their nine away games this season and they have won six of their seven victories with a clean sheet as well. Barcelona to win to nil at William Hill is a price of 9/5* (Betting Odds taken January 9th, 2018 at 5.25 pm). Each of the away wins that Barcelona have recorded this season have all seen them score at least two goals in. Their tally of goals away from the Nou Camp this season is 19 in nine games (2.1 per game on average) and they have conceded just the three as well having earned a clean sheet in 67% of those away games. It’s been powerful stuff from them and they are now ten points better off than they were at this stage last season. They are basically cruising to the title and with the arrival of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool and the return of Ousmane Dembele from injury, they are only getting stronger. Barcelona have scored in 100% of their away matches this season.
Who will win – Real Sociedad v Barcelona Predictions
You would just have to roll on with Barcelona having things their way as they usually do even though they had had their struggles at Sociedad. They have been comfortable this season and just got back into winning ways immediately after the break last weekend. Away win and it’s worth backing them to get it done to nil as well.
