Real Sociedad will be out for revenge in San Sebastian as they seek to trip up Barca in the title race after being dumped out of the Copa del Rey by the Catalans. La Real managed to draw the 2nd cup leg and will hope to replicate that strong performance.
Manager Arrasate will be without Imanol Agirretxe for the clash, however Estaban Granero and Dani Estrada have been training this week and might make the matchday squad.
Barca swatted aside Rayo Vallecano and also beat Manchester City with ease in the Champions League, but need to keep up with the Madrid clubs in La Liga. Real Madrid are expected to beat Elche and Barca will have to take 3 points of the Basque outfit to regain 1st place on goal difference.
Fullback Jordi Alba is injured with a thigh strain, so Adriano will play. Manager Martino said: ”We have to remain calm and continue along the same path because there is no time to relax as we must now start thinking about our next game in La Liga, we have clear objectives in each tournament. We can play better or we can play worse than [on Tuesday] but in no way are we going to relax.”
Possible starting lineups
Real Sociedad: Bravo; Zaldua, Ansotegi, I. Martinez, Angel; Canales, Bergara, Pardo; Griezmann, Seferovic, Vela
Barcelona: Valdes; Alves, Pique, Mascherano, Alba; Xavi, Busquets, Iniesta; Pedro, Sanchez, Messi
