Firmly determined to reclaim the second spot in the LaLiga standings, Barcelona will host top-six hopefuls Real Sociedad at their temporary home, Estadi de Montjuic, on Monday evening.

Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Betting Tips: BTTS

Following last week's detrimental 2-4 loss in the Catalan derby against Girona in a direct clash for the second spot, despite being in the lead twice, Barcelona now have anotrher chance to reclaim the driver's seat in the race for the runner-up finish, but they'll need to pick up a vital three points against a tricky Sociedad side.

Seeing their Catalan counterparts squander two huge points in Friday's LaLiga action, conceding a last-gasp equalizer in a 2-2 draw against Deportivo Alaves, Xavi's squad will be eager to mount a swift response to reclaim the second sot, which not only secures them a place in the Spanish Super Cup next season but also boosts their coffers.

The recent form of Barcelona, though, hasn't been reason for rejoicing, as they've found themselves on the losing side in three of their last four matches across all tournaments, but the return to their temporary home, Estadi de Montjuic, should bolster optimism for a successfull outcome, as they remain undefeated in six straight matches there, claiming five wins in that stretch.

Facing a European-seeking side might not be cause for major concern, as the Blaugrana boast their stelar head-to-head record against Real Sociedad, defeating them in 15 out of their last 18 clashes in all competitions, but the latest visit to Catalan soil sees the Basque club sprinting away as 2-1 victors.

The chosen ones of Imanol Alguacil have warmed up nicely ahead of their trip to Barcelona, as they cruised to a routine 2-0 victory over the out-of-form Las Palmas last time out, thus ending a dry spell of three winless matches and maintaining a slim two-point cushion over seventh-placed Real Betis, who are breathing down their necks.

Looking to keep the Andalusian Green and Whites at bay on the table and buoyed by their recent away displays, where they've gone unbeaten in three consecutive visits, Txuri-Urdin will aim to cause trouble for Barcelona, who have shown unprecedented leakiness at the back lately, conceding a staggering 13 goals in their last four competitive fixtures.

While not counted among the highest scorers in the Spanish top division, the Basque club can certainly illuminate the scoreboard against the Blaugrana, who have shipped at least two goals in three straight LaLiga fixtures. Overall, we expect an engaging encounter in Catalonia where both sides should easily hit the back of the net, with Barca also claiming three crucial points.

Barcelona team news

While duo Alex Balde and Gavi have long since put an end to the current season due to severe ligament injuries, they have recently been joined by Frenkie de Jong who sprained his ankle in El Classico on April 21.

After coming off the bench for the final 20+ minutes of the heavy 2-4 defeat to Catalan rivals Girona, Pedri and Raphinha should regain their places in the starting XI in place of Fermin Lopez and Sergi Roberto.

Real Sociedad team news

Having missed the last two LaLiga matches against Real Madrid and Las Palmas with a slight calf injury, right-back Hamari Traore is expected to return to action but will have to undergo further tests before the clash with Barcelona.

Unlike his counterpart Xavi, Sociedad boss Imanol Alguacil faces a far more extensive list of absentees, which also includes key midfielder Martin Zubimendi after he missed his side's 2-0 win over the Canarian outfit last week with a muscle issue.
