Barcelona v Real Sociedad: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

Barcelona can move back up to second in La Liga if they claim all three points when European hopefuls Real Sociedad visit the Estadi Olímpic Lluis Companys on Monday.

Barca's season has threatened to peter out over recent weeks following three defeats across their last four games, including last weekend's 4-2 reverse at Girona.

That result saw Xavi's side fall below their Catalan rivals in the standings, but they can reclaim second place with a victory over a Sociedad team that still has plenty to play for.

Imanol Alguacil's visitors appear likely to be involved in European competition again next season, but whether that is in the Europa League or Europa Conference League remains up for debate.

Barcelona v Real Sociedad stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

Barcelona have only lost one of their last 19 meetings with Real Sociedad, but the sole defeat during that run was a 2-1 reverse in last season's corresponding fixture.

The Blaugrana have lost three of their last four matches in all competitions, but prior to that they had been on a 13-game unbeaten run.

Sociedad have the fourth-best away record in La Liga this season - behind only Barca, Real Madrid and Girona - while they have only lost two of their last 13 road fixtures in the division.

November's reverse meeting between these two sides at the Anoeta ended in a 1-0 win for Barcelona, with Ronald Araujo scoring the winner deep into second-half stoppage time.
