The Copa del Rey has advanced to the quarterfinal round, and on Wednesday night at the Camp Nou, two of the top Spanish teams this year—Barcelona and Real Sociedad—will square off for a spot in the final round.

With 38 points after 18 games, the visitors are currently in third place in the league, six points behind the league leaders and three points behind Real Madrid.

Real Sociedad enters this game with a perfect record, having won seven straight games while recording four straight shutouts in away games.

Real Sociedad will try to improve upon last season’s exit from this competition at this stage against eventual winners Real Betis.

Barcelona will also be entering this game with great momentum, having gone 11 games without a loss, including six straight victories.

They are currently in first place in La Liga, and after being eliminated from the Champions League, they will do anything to win the domestic championship.

Barcelona has historically been by far the more dominant team in this match, going undefeated in their last six meetings with their opponents, winning five and drawing one.

Barcelona was eliminated from this competition in the Round of 16 the previous year, and despite the incredible recent form of their opponents, Barcelona will be confident that they can continue their winning streak against Sociedad in this one.

KICKOFF TIME: Barcelona versus Real Sociedad match will go down today at 9PM Nigerian time.
