The Blaugrana are coming off a convincing 4-1 triumph over Sevilla. Lionel Messi emerged from his open-play slump with two goals to lead the charge. It was exactly the type of performance Barca needed after a brief drop in overall form.
Things haven’t been going as well for Sociedad. They haven’t scored a single goal over their past three matches, losing two and drawing one by a combined score of 6-0. The Erreala will need a drastic increase in their level of play in the second leg. via Bleacher Report
