Barcelona coach Koeman wary of Real Sociedad in Supercopa semi

Ronald Koeman

A knock suffered in the game against Granada proved slightly more serious than first expected, and so Ronald Koeman has been forced into an unwanted change, as Martin Braithwaite starts in his place.

Should injury rule Messi out of Wednesday's game against Real Sociedad, Koeman will be forced to select either Martin Braithwaite or Portuguese player Trincao to replace the Barça captain. "It doesn't just depend on how a team is playing when they come into the semi-finals", he said during the press conference.

"The four teams participating have the mentality of doing their best to win a title".

Real Madrid won 4-2 on penalties to take the Super Cup in Jeddah.


The two sides played each other in La Liga a month ago, with Real Madrid the 3-1 winners against a rival that played for over 75 minutes with a player less after Raul Garcia was sent off for two wild challenges.

"Real [Sociedad] had a great start to LaLiga Santander".

The Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Spanish Super Cup match will be played at the Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero. Here are the details of when and where to watch Barcelona vs Real Sociedad live football match online in India. If you don't have cable, you can catch the match via fuboTV, which has a free seven-day trial or Sling.
