Starting XI: Sociedad v Barca

Spanish LaLiga

Teams: Real Sociedad v FC Barcelona

Date: 15 September 2018

Venue: Estadio Municipal de Anoeta

LaLiga champions FC Barcelona will put their perfect start on the line when they travel to Estadio Municipal de Anoeta to face Real Sociedad.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 16h15.

The Catalan giants recorded their biggest win of the season last weekend with a 8-2 thumping of newly-promoted Huesca at the Camp Nou.

The win saw them maintain top spot in the Spanish top flight for another week, although only on goal difference.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde will have a full squad of players to choose as only Sergi Samper and Denis Suarez remain out injured.

Sociedad, meanwhile, have endured a tough start to the season with one win in their opening three matches.

The hosts come into the clash on the back of a 2-1 loss to Eibar last weekend, their first defeat of the season.

The Catalan giants claimed the double of Sociedad last season, registering a 4-2 win in Anoeta and a 1-0 win in the reverse fixture.
