On March 1, Barcelona played a match against its most principled opponent – Real Madrid. Madrid won with a score of 2-0, interrupting a series of Catalan 4 consecutive victories in the championship. On the road, the Blaugrana really often stumbles in the current Spanish championship (5 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses). For comparison, on their home field Messi and Co look much better: 12 Victories, 1 draw and no defeats. Goals scored – 44, and missed – 12. On average, the team scored at least 3 goals per tour at Camp Nou.
After losing to Real, Barsa fell to 2nd place in the table. There are still 55 points in the asset. The gap from the 1st place is 1 point in total. As you understand, this season’s fight for the championship promises to be very intense.
However, on the whole, the results of Blaugrana in recent games are still good. Barcelona won four of the previous five games in La Liga, beating Levante (2-1), Betis (3-2), Getafe (2-1) and defeating Eibar (5-0).
The Catalans are the most productive club. In 26 games they scored 62 goals. On average, in one game with their participation (home and away) they score at least 3.5 goals. 18 fights ended through over2.5.
Also under the leadership of Quique Seiten, the Catalans achieved a draw in an away match with Napoli (1-1), significantly increasing their chances of reaching the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
Louis Suarez, Ousman Dembele and Serhi Roberto remain injured at Barcelona.
Real Sociedad is approaching this match with a six-match winning streak and as a finalist at the Copa del Rey. This week the Basque team beat Mirandez (1-0) in the semi-finals for the second time, reaching the final. In the championship Real Sociedad won three fights for the specified period.
Real Sosiedad played his last 3 games in Primera on their field. The team took full advantage of it, scoring 9 points. It turned out to be enough to join the fight for a place in the Champions League. We would like to remind you that today the Basques are in the 6th place. The Whites and Blues defeated Valencia (3-0), Athletic (2-1) and Valladolid (1-0). This allowed the Algvasil team to get back into the fight for the Champions League.
They have 43 points on the score. They have another match in reserve. If they manage to win it, the team will be in the TOP 4.
If Imanol Alguacil’s team show good results at home, they often stumble away. That’s how they perform on the road in the Primera: 5 Victories, 2 draws and 5 losses. The difference between scored and missed goals is 16-19. 2 away matches for the team ended in defeats (to Leganes and Betis). We should add that the Basques managed to have only 2 dry matches.
The next match is in question for David Zurutusa and Diego Llorente. Asier Illarramendi will not play for sure.
