A not so feared location

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 798

At the start of the decade, Anoeta had become a very hostile environment for Barcelona. However, Barca seem to have turned their fortunes around away to Real Sociedad in the last few years.

Not long ago, Barcelona's visits to Real Sociedad always spelt a draw or a defeat.

In every match there since the start of the decade, they always slipped up.

Between 2011 and 2016, Barcelona lost 5 and drew 3 in their 8 visits to San Sebastián in the league and cup. But the tables have now turned.

After going more than 5 years without winning in Anoeta, Leo Messi's Barcelona seem to have turned their fortunes around.

Ernesto Valverde's men will go out looking for their 4th win in a row at a stadium that until not long ago they couldn't win in.

Barca have won 3 games in a row there. Their run started in January 2017 with a 1-0 win in the Copa del Rey. Neymar got the goal that day.

After that, they won 2 more games, both in the league. In 2017-18, Barca got the 3 points with an impressive 4-2 win after going down 2-0.

One year later, Valverde's side won 2-1, again coming from behind. Some good signs for Barcelona as they try to achieve their number one target: staying top of the league before the 'Clásico'.
