Barcelona lost two of their last three matches in La Liga ahead of matchday No. 35. Will our score prediction pick the Blaugrana to get back to winning ways against Real Sociedad?

Real Sociedad will go to Barcelona following a 2-0 win over Las Palmas. The victory ended a three-match winless streak for La Royal.

Sociedad are battling for fifth place and trail fellow Basque club Athletic Club by seven points.

Barcelona took 12 points from the last six matches. They are six points ahead of Atletico Madrid in the race for third place.

The Blaugrana are guaranteed Champions League football However, they will want to finish in third place.

The reverse fixture saw Barcelona win 1-0 at Anoeta. The game looked destined for a nil-nil draw until Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo scored second-half stoppage time.

Sociedad won one of their last six matches versus Barcelona in all competitions. That win came last season in Barcelona, as Sociedad claimed a 2-1 victory.

Barcelona’s defence has not been solid of late. They conceded at least 2.0 goals in their last three league fixtures. All three games finished with over 3.5 goals.

Real Sociedad are not a high-scoring team. They scored just eight times in the last six fixtures. Still, La Royal picked up 11 points from those six matches.

Although Barca lost two of their last three matches, they still picked up 12 points from the last six games. Barcelona outscored those six opponents 13-9.

Robert Lewandowski leads the Blaugrana in goals with 17 in La Liga. No other Barcelona player has scored more than seven goals.

Although Lewandowski is the team’s only scorer in double-digits, Barca have scored 70 times, the third-most goals in La Liga.

Defensively, Sociedad are the third-best in the league, with just 35 goals allowed. Barcelona, on the other hand, have allowed 43 goals to opponents.

Mikel Oyarzabal leads the team in goals with nine. Winger Takefusa Kubo has chipped in with seven goals. Sociedad are not a high-scoring team and have only bagged a total of 48.

Frenkie de Jong will miss the match. Indeed, he is out for the rest of the campaign with an ankle injury.

Five players are set to miss out for Sociedad, including Kieran Tierney, Igor Zubeldia, Martín Zubimendi, Hamari Traore, and Carlos Fernández are all on the injury list.

Barcelona may have lost a week ago, but they will redeem themselves at home against Sociedad. Our score prediction is for Barcelona to win 2-1 at home and hold onto third place.
