Barca fully focused on Sociedad before Clasico – Valverde

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said his side will not take their eye off the ball in Saturday’s La Liga trip to Real Sociedad, despite the looming Clasico clash with great rivals Real Madrid next Wednesday.

The Catalans, who sit top of the league on goal difference ahead of Madrid, have a poor record on their visits to the fourth-placed Basque outfit, something which Valverde believes will help his players focus on the task at hand.Valverde said he was confident the Clasico would take place and that what will happen on the pitch will be “strictly sport related”, but added that the side are currently focused on Saturday’s match against Real Sociedad.

The Clasico was originally scheduled for October 26 but was postponed to December 18 for security reasons following massive protests in Catalonia over the jailing of nine Catalan separatist leaders.
