LaLiga Santander – Real Sociedad: Willian Jose hopes to maintain his impressive record against Barcelona
LaLiga Santander – Real Sociedad At least one goal in the past three seasons
Scoring against Barcelona has become a habit for Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose, who has sent the ball into the Blaugrana’s net in each of the past three LaLiga Santander seasons.
First with Las Palmas and then with La Real, he has netted four times against the Catalan side.
It started in the 2015/16 season, in the Canary Island side’s 2-1 loss against Barcelona.
The next season he moved to Anoeta, where he scored 14 goals, two of which were against the Blaugrana.
There was one in the league and another one in the Copa del Rey.
In 2017/18 he managed to beat Marc-Andre ter Stegen on home soil in his team’s 4-2 defeat, scoring one of his 20 goals in that campaign’s 40 games.
This year he missed the first game between the two teams due to injury, but should he score on Saturday then he would celebrate a goal against Barcelona for a fourth consecutive season.
The Brazilian is set to return to action at the Camp Nou, after having missed the previous game against Eibar due to suspension.
