Against Real Sociedad, Barcelona will rely on unproven players.
For the match against Real Sociedad, Pedri and Araujo are out due to injuries, and Gavi will be suspended after receiving 10 yellow cards throughout the LaLiga season.
Barcelona will be presenting their 2022–23 LaLiga championship to their thronging fans at home, and despite missing the three players, it is expected that they will be too strong for the visiting team.
In order to reach their goal of a record-breaking 97 points this year, the Blaugrana will be looking to players like Franck Kessie, Ansu Fati, and Marcos Alonso to fill the void left by the absent teammates. If they accomplish this feat, manager Xavi will become the Barcelona coach with the most points in a season.
