After an initially tough start to life at the Camp Nou, Koeman has now guided the Blaugrana through a nine-game unbeaten run, seeing them rise to 3rd within the La Liga table.
Included therein sequence was a recent 3-2 convert Sunday’s opponents, Athletic Club, with a Messi double and a strike from youngster Pedri seeing off some stubborn resistance from the Basque club.
That said, Marcelino was undoubtedly pleased with his side’s efforts during that clash (his first game responsible of the club), a sense which can have only increased after sending Real Madrid packing within the Super Copa de Espana semifinal.
Athletic Club won this competition in 2015 for just the second time in their history and can be confident of their chances of adding a 3rd to their trophy cabinet, thus denying Barcelona a record 14th title. However, the Blaugrana do have history and big-game experience on their side, while Koeman is going to be wanting to open his managerial trophy account with a club he lifted 10 pieces of silverware with as a player.
Barcelona (vs Real Sociedad): Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Araujo, Lenglet, Alba; De Jong, Busquets; Dembele, Pedri, Braithwaite; Griezmann.
Athletic Club (vs Real Madrid): Simon; Capa, Nunez, Martinez, Balenziaga; De Marcos, Vencedor, Garcia, Munain; Garcia, Williams.
