Andres Iniesta’s send-off at the Camp Nou on the final day of the La Liga season is likely to see plenty of goals and a win for the Spanish champions
Last week’s stunning 5-4 defeat at Levante ended Barcelona’s hopes of becoming the first team to a complete a 38-match season in La Liga unbeaten.
With the prospect of that record gone, there really is precious little at stake in the final game of the season at the Camp Nou against Real Sociedad.
It will be an emotional occasion, though, with captain Andres Iniesta playing his final game for the Catalans before leaving this summer.
Real Sociedad have ended the season strongly with five wins in their last seven matches, and dabblebet price them at 9/1 (10.00) to win at the Camp Nou for the first time since 1991.

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde controversially rested Lionel Messi for last week’s game at Levante, although we should expect the Argentine forward to return to the starting eleven.
Centre-back Samuel Umtiti is a doubt, while Sergi Roberto is suspended.
For La Real, captain Xabi Prieto will also be playing his final game for the club after 18 years service and he is expected to start along with Iniesta, with both players likely to receive rousing receptions.
This fixture often produces plenty of goals and both sides will want to give their respective captains a good send-off.
Real Sociedad may not boast a strong record on the road, yet they have found the back of the net away to every team they have played in the top five this season.
La Real have also scored in five of their last six meetings with Barca in all competitions and backing them to do so once more on Sunday makes sense.
Tips and predictions
The Blaugrana’s last four home wins have all come without a clean sheet and a repeat looks like a shrewd option for the final clash of the season.
