Barcelona will host Real Sociedad in one of the most-anticipated Copa del Rey quarter-final contest of the midweek. The Wednesday night fixture will be extremely difficult to call despite the game taking place at Camp Nou. The La Liga table toppers will undoubtedly be labelled as the favourites, however, Sociedad will be no pushover. The visitors’ position on the table and their current form clearly indicates how difficult a contest awaits the Catalan giants on Wednesday.

Both teams reached this stage of the competition with contrasting set of victories in the last round. Real Sociedad had to grind out a 1-0 victory over Mallorca, while Barcelona comfortably got past Ceuta 5-0. However, Xavi will be well aware of the difficult task at hand this time around. Sociedad are currently placed third in the La Liga table with 38 points from 18 games. They won their last five matches in the league and are in terrific run of form.

On the other hand, Barcelona are continuing to establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with. The Catalan giants are sitting at the top of the standings with 44 points from 17 games. They are three points ahead of second-placed Real Madrid in the table. Barcelona have won four of their last five league matches and are entering this contest filled with confidence.
