The grandeur of Barcelona is set to take the pitch once again in the domestic championship, as they return after being crowned La Liga champions. The ‘Cules’ are geared up to clinch a win against Real Sociedad to turn the match into a real party at the Camp Nou. What a sight it will be to witness the celebrations unfold in the stadium!
The reigning champions will host Real Sociedad on matchday 35 at the Camp Nou. The Basque side is keen on spoiling the party for Barcelona by giving them a tough competition since they are still battling to qualify for next season’s Champions League. Imanol Alguacil’s side secured the fourth spot by accumulating 62 points, just two points ahead of Villarreal, who are five on the ladder.
Xavi Hernandez’s team will be missing three key players, with Ronald Araujo and Pedri having discomfort and won’t be on the pitch. On the other hand, Gavi is suspended for the game. However, the Catalan giants are not someone who gets distracted easily and will come out with all guns blazing to secure a win and start their title celebrations at home.
If we talk about the possible lineups for the clash, then Barcelona’s possible starting XI might include Ter Stegen in the goalkeeping position. Kounde, E Garcia, Christensen and Balde are expected to be in defence, whereas Kessie, Busquets and De Jong can hold the midfield. Also, Dembele, Lewandowski and Raphinha can take up the forward positions.
On the other hand, Real Sociedad’s possible starting XI may have Remiro in the goalkeeping position. Gorosabel, Zubeldia, Le Normand and Munoz may constitute their defence line-up. Kubo, Zubimendi, Merino and Oyarzabal can be in their midfield, whereas D Silva and Sorloth can lead the attack.
The match is surely set to be one of its kind, and the fans are eagerly waiting to witness the grand celebrations capturing the stadium.
