The Barcelona vs Real Sociedad match will be played on Thursday, January 26, at the Camp Nou stadium, Barcelona. This is the Copa del Rey quarter-final second leg. In the 1st match played in San Sebastian Barcelona celebrated a 1-0 victory.


  • Barcelona is currently in a series of 4 victories in all competitions. During that period, the reigning Spanish champions scored 13 and conceded only 1 goal.
  • Messi-Suarez-Neymar trio scored 3 goals each in the last 4 games.
  • Real Sociedad won only 2 out of their last 5 matches in all competitions. Before this difficult period they won 7 out of 10 matches in all competitions.


In their previous 10 meetings, Barcelona recorded 5 victories, Real Sociedad recorded 3 victories, while 2 matches ended as a draw. Since 2000, they played only 3 matches in Copa del Rey and Barcelona won 2, while one match ended as a draw.


After a deep crisis, it seems that Barcelona found their rhythm again. Messi, Suarez and Neymar finally showed their magic in the last couple of weeks and reminded everyone watching of the prolific season they had last year. After a victory in San Sebastian, Luis Enrique might rest his most important players and focus on Primera Division.

While Barcelona is on a rise, Real Sociedad is declining. They are still 5th in Primera Division, but a 4-0 hammering by the hands of Sevilla 2 weeks ago showed they don't have the strength or quality to fight for the very top of the table. Barcelona defeated them in the first leg and Sociedad's chances to qualify for the next round are really slim. Like Barcelona, they will probably give the chance to some players who didn't have much playing time this season.

Barcelona is a huge favorite in this match. They found their rhythm and they will try to extend their winning series.

On the other hand, Real Sociedad is not in a particularly good form currently and they are focused on Primera Division.
