Barcelona wants revenge
A very strange paradox happened to Barcelona last season in the Spanish football elite.
The disappointing 3rd place in the final standings and 5 points behind the champion are well documented.
But they are in incredible contrast to the real performance of the team.
Barcelona was the strongest team in La Liga according to xG data for all indicators.
In addition, they strengthened their lineup with Memphis Depay, Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia and Emerson.
And at the moment the Catalans have the best quality team in the Primera.

Real Sociedad is not to be underestimated
Real Sociedad, as I have mentioned more than once, is always at the foot of the top of La Liga.
Too strong for everyone else. And a little weaker than the Top 4 teams.
xG their data was better than that of Real Madrid. Although they finished 5th and 15 points away from 4th.
However, they also won the King's Cup. As everything is the result of the undoubted quality of the composition.
