How Barcelona could line up against Real Sociedad

Sports Mole looks at how Barcelona could line up in Saturday's La Liga clash with Real Sociedad.

Barcelona will be looking to make it five straight La Liga victories when they take on Real Sociedad this weekend.

Since losing 3-1 at Levante towards the start of November, Ernesto Valverde's side have won their last four league matches, including a 5-2 success at home to Mallorca last time out.

As it stands, the Spanish champions are top of La Liga with 34 points, level with second-placed Real Madrid, who are in action away to Valencia on Sunday night.

Barca were also triumphant in the Champions League during the week as they rounded off their group-stage campaign with an impressive 2-1 win away to Inter Milan.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the visitors could line up on Saturday afternoon.


Out: Nelson Semedo (calf), Ousmane Dembele (hamstring)
Doubtful: Jordi Alba (muscle), Arthur (adductor)

Barca remain without the services of Ousmane Dembele due to a hamstring problem, while first-choice right-back Nelson Semedo is still on the treatment table with a calf issue.

Jordi Alba has made significant progress in his recovery from a muscular problem, although it remains to be seen whether the Spain international is included in the squad this weekend.

Arthur is also struggling with an adductor issue, but a number of players will be fresh for Barca having been left out of the clash with Inter during the week.

Only four players - Clement Lenglet, Junior Firpo, Ivan Rakitic and Antoine Griezmann - are expected to keep their spot in the XI, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets, Gerard Pique, Frenkie de Jong and Sergi Roberto due to return.

Rakitic's spot in the middle of the park is perhaps the one under the biggest threat, with Arturo Vidal and Carles Alena both pushing to be involved should Arthur not overcome his issue in time.
