Starting XI: Barca v Sociedad

Spanish La Liga 

Teams: FC Barcelona v Real Sociedad

Date: 14 April 2017

Venue: Camp Nou

FC Barcelona, who will be without Neymar, will be hoping for a return winning ways in La Liga whe they host Real Sociedad.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h45.

Luis Enrique's charges suffered a 2-0 defeat to Malaga last weekend, while they head into the encounter on the back of a 3-0 loss to Juventus in the UEFA Champions League during the week.

Neymar is suspended after being hit with a three-game for his actions following his sending off against Malaga, while Javier Mascherano misses out through injury.

Gerard Pique and Ivan Rakitic have returned to the squad, after missing last week's loss through suspension.

Real Sociedad, meanwhile, are fighting for a top six spot and come into the encounter on the back of a 3-1 win  over Sporting Gijon.

The visitors will be without Juanm, who is suspended, while Alvaro Odriozola also misses out.

When these two sides met earlier in the season, they played out a 1-1 draw at the Estadio Municipal de Anoeta.

Here's how they line up:

Barca: Ter Stegen; Roberto, Piqué, Umtiti, Alba; Busquets, Gomes, Rakitic; Messi, Suarez, Alcácer.

Sociedad: Rulli; Zaldua, Martinez, Raúl Navas, Yuri; Zurutuza, Illarramendi, Xabi Prieto; Oyarzabal, José, Vela
