Barcelona will entertain Real Sociedad at the Nou Camp this weekend as they try to secure another win in La Liga. The Catalan giants managed to earn a dominant 4-2 victory away at Espanyol recently which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this clash.
Xavi will strict with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and could name a strong first XI for this game. Ousmane Dembele will play from the start of this game while Gavi makes way for him and drops to the bench.
4-3-3 Barcelona Predicted Lineup To Face Real Sociedad
Marc-André ter Stegen will operate in between the sticks for Barca after conceding a couple of goals in his last league outing. Ronald Araujo will partner up with Andreas Christensen at the centre of Barcelona’s backline as they try to keep the Real Sociedad attackers quiet during the game.
Jules Kounde will get another chance to impress as the right-back while Alejandro Balde hopes to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Xavi will give both of them the license to get forward and join in on the attack at every chance they get.
Marcos Alonso will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets and Pedri will function as the holding midfielders as they try to engineer some clear-cut chances in the opponent’s half.
Franck Kessie and Sergi Roberto have to settle for a place on the bench as they wait for their chance to make an impact in the second half if Xavi decides to call upon their services.
Ousmane Dembele will get an opportunity to make a difference as the left winger while Raphinha looks to weave his magic from the right.
Robert Lewandowski will once again lead the charge for the Catalan giants on his own up top. The Polish striker will have to be a potent threat in the final third if Barca are to come out on top this weekend.
Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if Barcelona are in need of a goal by then.
