Tip Barcelona - Real Sociedad
A nine-point lead for Barcelona with just six games to go means retaining their title is looked extremely likely. That would be the fourth title in five years and they look to get another three points at home to Real Sociedad. Barcelona had a comfortable 3-0 home win over Manchester United in midweek and that extended their unbeaten home run to 16 matches. They have kept clean sheets in each of their last three home games and eight out of their last nine home games have been won in La Liga.
Real Sociedad are 10th but only five points behind the Europa League places. They are struggling for form though with just one win in their last eight La Liga matches. Away form is a big worry for them with their last win being that shock victory at Real Madrid six days into the new year. Since then Sociedad have drawn five and lost two with only six goals scored. Not since 1995 have they avoided defeat at Barcelona with 22 defeats in a row. Go for Barcelona to win and be ahead at both half and full time.
