BAR vs RS match preview –
In the next match of La Liga, Barcelona will lock horns with Real Sociedad at the Anoeta Stadium on Saturday. This clash is one special one as this would be the first match to take place at the Anoeta Stadium after the renovations took place.
This would be a new beginning in the history of Real Sociedad, as the Basques will play their first fixture at the renewed Anoeta Stadium. The renovation mainly focused on removing the athletics track so that the stadium can turn into a modern marvel.
Meanwhile, Ernesto Valverde will take his side to the Basque Country in a quest to register their fourth straight win of this season. They have been in some fine form and with a win here they will look to excel themselves even more for the rest of the season.
On the other hand, Real Sociedad’s campaign so far has been a mixed one as they kicked off with a 2-1 win against Villa Real, then had a closely fought draw game against Leganes where the scores were settled with 2-2. Their previous fixture against Eibar was a disappointing one as they went down by 2-1 to mark their first loss of the season.
