RS vs BAR Dream11 Prediction: The Spanish Super Cup kicks off on Wednesday night as Real Sociedad face off against Barcelona in the first semi-final at the Nuevo Arcangel. Injuries and fixture congestion has blighted La Real’s season after such an imposing and impressive fast start to the campaign. They come up against a Barca side on the back of their best performance of the season to make it three wins from three in 2021. An unconvincing win against Huesca and two wins relying on Messi magic aren’t the beginnings of a new dawn but Champions League qualification becomes a lot more realistic this season. A title challenge and Champions League win seems very unlikely so Ronald Koeman’s only realistic hopes for silverware come in this and the Copa Del Rey. Let’s take a look at RS vs BAR Dream11 Team prediction now.

Real Sociedad Team News
Real Sociedad have capitulated spectacularly following a strong start to the season when they had been going toe to toe with Atletico Madrid to be perched on the summit of La Liga. However, that is all in the past now, with La Real managing to win just one of their last 12 games in all competitions, with several of the winless results coming in the league, where they most recently lost to Sevilla.
Injury update, unavailability
David Silva and Aritz Elustondo are major doubts for this one through injuries. Willian Jose is expected to be fit and available after suffering a knock.

Remiro; Gorosabel, Le Normand, Zubeldia, Monreal; Illarramendi, Merino, Guevara; Porto, Jose, Oyarzabal

Barcelona, on the other hand, are the form team in Spain at the moment, having not been beaten in any of their last eight games.

Their most recent result was a thumping 4-0 win over Granada, which was arguably their best performance of the current season.
