Barcelona to Win

While things are currently in turmoil at Barcelona after Messi's departure, we still expect Blaugrana to come up with a win against Real Sociedad. The guests are a good team but they, like Barcelona, have a few injured players at the moment. Still, Barca beat Real Sociedad both times in the league last season, including a convincing 6-1 win in San Sebastian. We also like the odds on Barcelona to win, which are unusually, but also understandably high at the moment.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the previous five head-to-head duels between Barcelona and Real Sociedad have gone over 2.5 total goals, so we expect to see the same in this match as well. In addition to this, Barcelona averaged 3.24 goals per game last season, which was the highest in the league. Meanwhile, Real Sociedad averaged a solid 2.55 goals per game, so they should be able to combine for at least three goals in this game.

Antoine Griezmann to Score at Any Time

With Leo Messi out of the club, Antoine Griezmann will have to assume a much larger role in the team. In addition to this, Sergio Aguero will not be able to make his debut for Barcelona in this game, so Griezmann will be the biggest offensive threat for Barca against Real Sociedad. With that in mind, we expect to see the French international netting at least one goal in the match.

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad preview: How will Barca look without Messi?

Things seemed to have settled down at Camp Nou after Barcelona and Leo Messi were once again in love after last year's summer when their legend wanted to leave, but the team failed to win the title and they didn't do that well in the Champions League either. They did, however, win Copa del Rey. And then a week ago the football world suffered an earthquake when it was announced that Messi won't be staying at Barca due to the team's financial problems. Messi signed for PSG in the meantime, joining a few other, much less important players who have left the club. Meanwhile, Barcelona signed Eric Garcia, Depay, and Aguero for free and bought Emerson Royal from Betis.

After winning the belated Copa del Ray for 2019/2020 last year with a win over their local rivals Athletic Bilbao, the team from San Sebastian also had their best La Liga finish in many years since they ended the season in the fifth place. The team secured a spot in Europa League this season and they will hope to repeat the same success this year as well. The team largely remained the same with a few small-scale additions and departures.
