It's make or break for Barcelona after setbacks in Liga & CL

It's make or break for Barcelona after setbacks in Liga & CL

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique insists his side will keep fighting as they look to bounce back from a dispiriting week. The Argentina worldwide is expected to miss Saturday's match against Real Sociedad but could be back in contention for Wednesday's return leg against the Italian champions - with Barcelona trailing 3-0 on aggregate. Madrid has a three-point lead and a game in hand. Real Sociedad will be looking to get a result to continue their pursuit of a European ticket for next season.

Barcelona versus Real Sociedad kicks off at 20:45 CET on Saturday and will be shown live in the United Kingdom on Sky Sports 3 from 19:30 GMT.

After the highs on the back of the huge PSG home win, Barcelona is now in the middle of a rough patch.

Luis Enrique has had an incredibly successful managerial stint at Barcelona. "Maybe the best is yet to come", the former Barcelona midfielder added. Don't be surprised to see Luis Enrique rotate and rest some players in today's squad.

Neymar is suspended after being hit with a three-match ban for his red card and subsequent protests in Malaga last weekend. He said: "We want to have a chance of winning the league, and that begins with a win against Real Sociedad". A very much needed win after a stretch of 4 matches with just one draw. Athletic Bilbao did the job alreaady last night, beating Las Palmas 5-1 at home, to put some extra pressure on Sociedad.

Martinez, Agirretxe and Juanmi are ruled out of the trip to Barcelona. Ahead of the match on Saturday, here's the all-important team news for Barcelona.

Spanish football expert Tim Clement provides his latest LaLiga predictions, backing Barcelona to bounce back from their mauling at Juventus.

Barcelona has only kept 1 clean sheet in their last 7 matches.

Enrique, however, expects Sociedad to prove tough opponents.

However, history is very much on Los Azulgranas' side at the Camp Nou tonight.

Oyarzabal, who turns 20 on Friday, scored the only goal when La Real beat Barca at Anoeta in April 2016 but the Basques haven't won at Camp Nou in their last 20 visits.

It is said the Camp Nou legend, whose planned departure at the end of the season has already been confirmed, took a "hard tone" and was critical of his players over their attitude in the game.
