RS Vs BAR Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: First semi-final sees waning Real Sociedad take on Barcelona
As sensational as their pulsating form was in the opening exchanges of La Liga, equally sordid has been their downtick in form. Long gone is the Real Sociedad side many were claiming had a chance of challenging for this edition’s title.
Leave alone talk of their title credentials, Real Sociedad have currently slumped out of the top 4 altogether. Defeated 3-2 by Sevilla the last time around, the side has just the one win in its last 12 matches, form worthy of the relegation zone.
Where they have shambolically collapsed, Barcelona has managed to up the ante with the club making massive strides after its recent 4-0 win.

Date And Time: 14th January, Thursday- 1:30am IST
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Arcangel
Top Goal Scorer

He did end up conceding thrice the last time around but had it not been for Alex Remiro, Real Sociedad would have long been shunned from their tie.
Although the likelihood of a cleansheet for either team is extremely bleak today, Barcelona do stand with a fair shout of pulling one off. The club has three cleansheets in its last five matches to see Charles Lenglet and Sergino Dest be inducted in our team.
Andoni Gorosabel is meanwhile our pick from the home side owing to his ability to recover the ball.
Both Pedro Gonzalez and Ousmane Dembele have been pivotal in Barcelona’s recovery. The two attacking young names are showing why the club has reposed faith in them with their ability to layup the ball serving the front line nicely.
Frenkie de Jong’s quick ball movement sees him wrap up the trio from the team while Porto’s ability to knock up scorching strikes sees him be our pick from the opposition.
The club’s leading scorer with the 7 goals and 4 assists, Mikel Oyarzabal hammers his place down in our side.
Barcelona will also see top scorer, Lionel Messi make a way into our unit along with Antoine Griezmann who scored twice at the weekend.
Captain And Vice-Captain
11 goals and 2 assists were enough to make the league’s top scorer, Messi our captain while Antoine is the vice-captain.
Remiro, Gorosabel, Charles, Dest, Jong, Dembele, Pedro, Portu, Antoine, Lionel, Mikel
