Barcelona will be aiming to extend their perfect start to this La Liga season when they make the trip to the Estadio Municipal de Anoeta to take on Real Sociedad. Real Sociedad threw away a one-goal lead following Willian Jose’s early goal to succumb to a 2-1 away loss at Eibar. On the other hand, Barcelona picked up a ridiculous 8-2 home win against Huesca thanks to a brace from both Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, three goals from Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic and Jordi Alba, and an own-goal from Jorge Pulido.

Betting Tips for the game
Real Sociedad were unbeaten in two La Liga fixtures prior to their 2-1 defeat on the road at Eibar two weeks ago. Theoretically, Sociedad should feel confident ahead of this game as this will be their first La Liga home fixture of the new season. Their home form in La Liga towards the end of the previous season has seen them win four games in a row.
Meanwhile, Barcelona are currently on a five-game winning run across all competitions. They have won each of their opening three league fixtures, including an excellent 8-2 home triumph against Huesca a fortnight ago. Away from home, the Blaugrana have suffered just three defeats in their last 15 games across all competitions.
Barcelona have won each of their last five meetings with Real Sociedad across all competitions and should be able to extend this run. Our betting tips and predictions fancies Barcelona to win at odds 1.40.
