Can Barcelona Bounce Back to Winning Ways Against Real Sociedad?

The Blaugrana will be looking to get back to winning ways and avoid being marooned in bad form at a pivotal period of the season.
With seven matches remaining for Barcelona, consistency will be crucial to ensure that they can remain in the top four and qualify for next season’s Champions League.
