Suarez Pique Messi Barcelona
Barcelona are in terrific form at the momentReuters

The unstoppable Barcelona train will look to continue on its merry way when Real Sociedad pay a visit to the Camp Nou in the La Liga on Saturday.

Barcelona were irresistible in the El Clasico last Saturday, and then followed that up with another ridiculous attacking show against Roma in the Champions League.

With Luis Suarez and Neymar in terrific form and Lionel Messi returning from injury in style, Barcelona look scary-good, and Real Sociedad will be dreading another thrashing, even if Luis Enrique remains cautious.

"Real Sociedad have quality players and if you're not in good form they can give you problems with the ball," Enrique said.

Sociedad have a new manager in former Barcelona man Eusebio, who replaced David Moyes, and Enrique knows, while that is an advantage, in the end all that will matter is how well the teams perform in those 90 minutes.

"With Eusebio, you can see they have a plan to carry out, and they are clear about creating pressure and about which players have to do it and how," Enrique said about Barca's Saturday opponents.

"He may know our style to perfection, but another thing is to put it together on the field with the players and to do it effectively.

"I also came to Camp Nou when I was with Celta -- I knew the style perfectly and I lost."

The way the MSN trio are playing, even if Real Sociedad managed to find a couple of goals, you know Barcelona will score three or more. So, the key for any team playing Barca at the moment is to try and find some way of stopping Messi, Suarez and Neymar.

"Whenever we face anyone it is with the intention of winning," Eusebio, whose side are 14th in the table with 12 points, was quoted as saying by ESPN. "We face a great rival, but the enthusiasm and courage should be there.

"Barcelona are experiencing a time of harmony in which everything flows, but we also want to reach a state of high spirits. Barca dominate, are intense and can control all aspects of the game. There are many difficulties, but we have quality."

Barcelona have a four-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid at the moment, and that lead will go to seven for at least a few hours with a win over Sociedad.

"We hope to keep this run going as long as possible," Enrique added. "We have the chance to add three key points to stay leaders and stay strong at home."
