Genuine Sociedad versus Barcelona, La Liga: Final Score 2-2, Barça drop two points in a wild game at Anoeta

Sociedad versus Barcelona

Barcelona may need to go to El Clásico next Wednesday in the runner up in La Liga because of a 2-2 draw with Real Sociedad at Anoeta on Saturday, gave Real Madrid beat Valencia this end of the week. Barça made a terrible beginning, recuperated, led the pack, missed a few opportunities of a lifetime and in the end surrendered the equalizer in a profoundly engaging game.


Sociedad consistently assaults and presses and score early paying little heed to who they face, and that is actually what occurred here as the host group suffocated Barça in the initial 10 minutes until they got an opportunity to score. They got it when Sergio Busquets was discovered pulling Diego Llorente in the case, and Mikel Oyarzabal scored from the punishment spot to give La Real the lead.

It took some time for Barça to recoup from the early rush despite everything they enabled a few once in a lifetime opportunities to Sociedad, however gradually the guests started to develop into the game by engrossing weight and hitting the adversary on the counter, and seven minutes before halftime they got a major equalizer on account of a wonderful objective by Antoine Griezmann against his previous club.

At halftime Barça still expected to play better, however, it felt like they'd endured the hardship and were prepared to assault more in the last time frame.


Barça made the ideal beginning to the subsequent half: only four minutes in, Busquets played a splendid go to discover Lionel Messi in solitude before objective, however, the skipper chose to give Luis Suárez a simple tap-in and the Blaugrana led the pack.

Directly in the wake of scoring Barça had two enormous opportunities to build the lead: first, it was Griezmann who wound up before objective yet had his shot spared by Remiro, at that point, Gerard Piqué won a header from a corner however had a specific objective tidied up the line.

The third objective didn't come to basically slaughter the game, and Barça paid for it: Ter Stegen committed an uncommon error attempting to stop a cross into the crate, and Alexander Isak scored the equalizer.

The last minutes were commanded by Sociedad who had two or three great possibilities yet couldn't score, and Barça had a gigantic punishment yell denied in the latest possible time. The last whistle in the long run came, and this feels more like a misfortune than a positive outcome at Anoeta.
