Barcelona, with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar in tow, will be looking to get back to winning ways when they face off against Real Sociedad on Apr. 9 at 2.30 p.m. EST. Will they move closer to winning La Liga? Click to find out!
They are beatable! After their humbling 2-1 home defeat against Real Madrid in El Clasico last time out, Barcelona resume their La Liga campaign against Real Sociedad at their Anoeta Stadium on Apr. 9. Will Lionel Messi, 28, and co get their show back on the road with a win? Click down for the live stream to find out!
Lionel struggled in El Clasico, with Cristiano Ronaldo winning the day right at the end, much to the dismay of the Barça home fans. But this is an opportunity for them to put things right and get back to doing what they do best — winning matches.
In the Champions League, Barcelona didn’t have things all their own way against their championship rivals Atletico Madrid — edging a close game 2-1, but they didn’t get the convincing lead they had hoped to take to Madrid for the second leg. Real Sociedad will be well aware this might be the best time to play the Catalans.
What makes this game even more interesting is Barcelona hasn’t tasted much success at Sociedad’s fortress home. In fact, the last time Barcelona won there was 2007, and they’ve lost the last four. Will lighting strike for a fifth time?
Last time these two Spanish met Barcelona romped to a 4-0 win over Real Sociedad on Nov. 28, 2015. Brazilian superstar Neymar scored twice, with Luis Suarez and Lionel also getting in on the act. There’s just no stopping these guys when they’re on song.
On paper this should be a Barcelona win. But soccer doesn’t workout that way, and given Sociedad’s recent history against Barça it might just be that both teams will have to settle for a tie.
