Real Sociedad has been La Liga history this season as it is currently at the top of the points table, albeit having played more games than some of their rivals. A good test for the Basque club will be the midweek game against Barcelona.
The Catalan giants have been inconsistent this season and well below their usual standards. However, in certain games, they have shown promising insights.

Real Sociedad boss Imanol Alguacil recognized Barcelona’s strength ahead of the game and looked into the possibility of stopping it if Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann are in shape. He said:
The French are now without a goal in three games. Against his previous team, he will be the key if Barcelona are to take all three points.

Much has been written about Lionel Messi’s form this season, although the Argentine has already contributed 9 goals and 2 assists.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner remains the most influential player on the Barcelona team when it comes to songs and will be the key to the Blaugrana’s fate against Real Sociedad.
Barcelona seem to be slowly improving as they are just five points behind the top four with their recent win against Levante.
Meanwhile, Real Sociedad have drawn their last six games in the league but have remained at the top of the table. After Atletico Madrid pumped their necks down with two games in hand, Alguacil is hoping his side can stop Messi and Griezmann on Wednesday.
