Suspension 

Barcelona forward Neymar Jr. is currently one booking away from susepnsion and will have to tread carefully in today's game against Real Sociedad at Anoeta (20:45 CET). If the Brazilian sees yellow this evening, as he did in the 2014-15 season, he will miss next weekend's El Clásico

Cards galore

Neymar will have to tread carefully, however, given that game in San sebastián will be refereed by Gil Manzano, who has brandished 44 cards in six games, a total of 41 yellow cards and three reds, an average of 7.33 cards per game, the second-highest total in LaLiga behind Mateu Lahoz.

Sports cars and challenges

The Brazilian is due to start at Anoeta, despite crashing his Ferrari on Sunday morning and Luis Enrique will be keen for his striker to keep a cool head in a fixture Los Azulgranas haven't won in six seasons
