Real Sociedad will face high-flying Barcelona in front of home fans at the Reale Stadium on Sunday. Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi has enjoyed scoring a lot of goals against Real Sociedad in his distinguished LaLiga career thus far. The Argentinian star has scored 13 goals from 19 appearances against the club. All eyes will be on Lionel Messi who was absent from Barcelona's mid-week UEFA Champions League encounter against Inter Milan. In his absence, it was La Masia product - Ansumane Fati - who starred with a winning goal in the second half. The question remains - will Ansumane Fati be given another chance in the starting line-up on Sunday or will Ernesto Valverde keep the youngster on the bench against Real Sociedad?
Real Sociedad predicted line-up:
Alex Remiro, Joseba Zaldua, Diego Llorente, Andoni Gorosabel, Nacho Monreal, Portu, Martin Odegaard, Ander Guevara, Mikel Merino, Mikel Oyarzabal, Willian Jose.
