Current Form
The White and Blues were held to a 2-2 draw by Rayo Vallecano way on 29 October and they are undefeated in their last two matches in the Spanish elite league.
Sociedad are also enjoying a 15-match unbeaten run at home in the competition having registered 10 wins and five draws at the Estadi Mallorca Son Moix.
Meanwhile, Barcelona suffered a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid at home on 28 October as their 10-match unbeaten run in La Liga came to an end.
However, Barca are unbeaten in their last five away matches in the competition having recorded two wins and three draws as the visitors.
Team News
Sociedad stars André Silva, Martín Merquelanz, Odriozola and Kieran Tierney will be missing due to their respective injuries, but the club has no suspension concerns.  
Barcelona, on the other hand, also do not have suspension worries, but Sergi Roberto is currently the only Barca player who is out injured.
"We dominated 60 minutes, but this is football," Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez said after his side's clash with Madrid.
"We need five or six chances to score and they, with two or three, score two goals. It’s the difference. 
“We lacked effectiveness. What we proposed went well, we were calm, patient… Maybe I’m exaggerating, but the feeling I have from the bench is that we deserved to win."
Sociedad emerged as 2-1 winners over Barcelona in their last meeting in La Liga with the match taking place at the Spotify Camp Nou on 20 May 2023.
Therefore, the White and Blues ended their 13-match winless run in the league against Barca who had recorded two draws and 11 wins.
