Barca given the swerve with both teams fancied to score

Crisis club Barcelona begin life without Lionel Messi in this Sunday’s La Liga opener at home to Real Sociedad and despite fair prices available, we’re happy to pass up on Ronald Koeman’s charges for the action at Camp Nou.

It speaks volumes that despite not losing to Sociedad here in 27 encounters and winning ten of the last 11
meetings between the teams including a barnstorming 1-6 success at Anoeta in March, Barca are priced up at a tempting 8/11 for this Matchday 1 contest.

But the bookmakers are clearly uncertain around the short term impact that Lionel Messi’s departure from the Catalan giants will have, alongside several other personnel changes and the club’s well publicised ongoing financial troubles.

And with so much up in the air, we think this is a game to sit back and enjoy for the likely entertainment as opposed to banking on a home win. In addition to Barca’s listed issues, Real Sociedad are a decent outfit and posted a fifth place finish last term alongside their delayed 2019/20 Copa Del Rey triumph.

Los Txuri-Urdin are always a great watch and managed to score in all but one of their final 11 La Liga fixtures last season. With both teams scoring in six of the last seven meetings and Barca conceding in seven of their last nine league outings in 2020/21, both teams to score is the clear pick for Sunday’s clash at Camp Nou and the visitors could steal a rare point at this venue via a 2-2 score-line.
