Will Alexis start tonight? - Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno
A chance to predict the score of tonight's La Liga clash between table toppers Barcelona, and ninth-placed Real Sociedad
Forget Barcelona's record-breaking start to the season, for all intents and purposes, La Liga starts tonight. Travelling to the Basque Country, where they will take on Philippe Montanier's Real Sociedad, Barcelona will be pushed to the limit as they look to kick-start the second-half of the La Liga season with a win. Even with an eleven point lead over Atletico Madrid, Barca cannot afford to lose their focus - even for a single game. Montanier's side boast the joint-best defensive home record in La Liga, and with stars such as Antoine Griezmann and Carlos Vela in attack, Sociedad will make Barcelona pay for even the slightest hint of complacency.
With that in mind, Tito Vilanova is expected to field a strong starting XI, even with a pivotal Copa del Rey clash with Malaga on the horizon. The question is: will it be enough to secure the three points? Predict the score of tonight's match by voting in our poll below, and commenting with your prediction in the comments section. Best of luck!
