Xavi’s Barcelona squad is eager to celebrate their La Liga title victory with their home fans as they prepare to take on Imanol Alguacil’s Real Sociedad.
Barcelona clinched the league title in their previous game, defeating rivals Espanyol on their own turf. Now, they are hoping to revel in their triumph alongside their supporters in today’s match against La Real. Barcelona has enjoyed a dominant record against Real Sociedad, having not lost to them in their last 13 meetings in La Liga. Their superiority is even more evident in their home encounters, as they have emerged victorious in their last 24 games against the Basque side. Xavi aims to end the season on a high note, following their first league title triumph since the departure of Messi.
Real Sociedad enters this match following a 2-2 draw against Girona in their previous league fixture. Alguacil’s team currently occupies the fourth position in the league standings with 62 points from 34 games, holding a slender two-point lead over Villarreal in fifth place. They arrive with confidence, as they remain undefeated in their last five league matches, winning three of them. Real Sociedad’s objective is to secure their place in the top four and thereby secure a spot in the Champions League for the upcoming season.
