Real Sociedad vs FC Barcelona : Preview, Players to Watch and Tactical Analysis

Barcelona FC will visit Real Sociedad this Saturday at 12:00 p.m. ET to play the La Liga Week 3 match at Anoeta.

While it seems like a very winnable game for Barcelona, the truth is that playing at Anoeta is never an easy task at all, and the Erreala are always a tough opponent when they're playing at home.

When you take into account there were International friendlies this week, that just makes a bit harder too.

Wondering what was the score last time they played at San Sebatián? 2-1 for Real, with Uruguayan forward Ifrán and Xabi Prieto scoring their goals after Thiago had put the Blaugrana ahead in the first half.

Barcelona did play a "B" side for that match because they were getting ready for the mid-week UCL match, but it's still quite impressive for Real to get that result, as it's one of the two times Barca lost in La Liga last season.  

However, in their first game at Camp Nou in December, Barcelona FC won 5-0 with goals by David Villa, Andrés Iniesta, two by Lionel Messi and a last-minute bonus by Bojan.

So what can you expect for this match?

This slideshow will break the game down so you don't have to.
