The La Liga champions enjoyed a big win in the Champions League this week and we are backing them to record another victory on Saturday evening

Barcelona welcome Real Sociedad to Camp Nou on Saturday evening as Ernesto Valverde's men look to get back to winning ways in La Liga.

The Blaugrana drew 0-0 at bottom side Huesca last weekend, and while they remain nine points clear at the top of the table, another slip-up could give second place Atletico Madrid some hope. 

Latest odds

Real Sociedad recorded a famous win at the Bernabeu in January but since then, they have failed to win on the road. The Basques are offered at 12/1 (13.00) to claim their first away victory in six matches.

Barca, for their part, are priced at 2/9 (1.22) to win their thirteenth home game of the season with the draw at 5/1 (6.00).

Team news

Barcelona have no major injury concerns, but with three La Liga games in 10 days before the first leg of their Champions League semi-final, the coach may choose to rotate some players.

The visitors are likely to be without midfielders Asier Illarramendi and David Zurutuza, as well as winger Adnan Januzaj.

Preview

La Real head to Catalonia having suffered a serious drop in form, going from Champions League contenders to mid-table after a run of just one win in eight.

Traditionally the side from San Sebastian have caused Barca problems when they have hosted them in the Basque Country, yet they have failed to win at the Camp Nou for 28 years.

That winless run is set to continue this weekend against a Barcelona side capable of finding a way to claim three points even when they are not playing their best.

After a big European game in midweek and with a hectic schedule coming up, it might be a slightly low-key performance from the hosts.

Tips and predictions

Barcelona to win and under 3.5 goals is priced 7/5 (2.40) and has paid out in three of Barca's last four home league games. This selection has also landed in seven of the Catalans' 12 home wins and looks a strong option for Saturday's game. 

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
