Barça added its second win in a row in an even match against Real Sociedad in which each one was better in one part. The Catalans, however, were more successful and the goals from Alba and De Jong, next to a Ter Stegen’s prodigious stop shortly after the end, they were given three key points against the leader in his climb to the top of the table.
Barcelona appeared with a defense of circumstances (Mingueza-Araujo as a central pair) but La Real missed its two great figures, Oyarzábal and David Silva, too much, and the shock was clearly of the blaugranas in the first part.
A shot from Messi, another to the post from Griezmann and a good stop from Remiro to Alba (finally offside) presaged that the local goal was not going to arrive, but in a corner kick, a bad mark from the culé defense prompted Portu to pick up the ball and He gave Willian José to score.
However, Koeman’s team did not accuse the blow, and the reward for his insistence and good play also came in a corner, in which Alba took advantage of the indecision in the clearance of the realistic rear to hook a great shot with his right leg.
Barça did not stop attacking after the draw and again Alba was the protagonist of the second goal, which was on the brink of rest. A large center from the left lo De Jong finished at the back of the net. The play was invalidated by offside, but the VAR gave the so much by good.
The panorama changed after the break, Barça lost control of the game and the passing of the minutes made Real Sociedad grow. However, the clearest occasion was a gagged Antoine Griezmann who missed a shot without a goalkeeper in the small area incomprehensibly.
The arrivals of the Real were every time clearer and the result began to endanger for the culés. First, it was Pedri who avoided the point-blank shot of the newly incorporated Isak, then it was Araujo who managed to stop Monreal from finishing. But the culé hero of the night was Ter Stegen, once again.
After a rejection of his save, Isak picked up the ball a few meters from the goal, but the German goal became gigantic and managed stop with an almost miraculous leg the goal of the Swedish forward of the Real.
The San Sebastian team did not give up, who locked Barcelona in his area at many times in the final stretch, but the Catalans defended themselves in order to secure three important points to continue their comeback in the League.
