Real Sociedad vs Barcelona
7:45pm Sunday 14th January
Barcelona were 2-0 down against Real Sociedad before fighting back to claim the victory and break a long winless run at Anoeta.
Lionel Messi set a new goalscoring landmark as Barcelona came from two goals down to beat Real Sociedad 4-2 and break their Anoeta cruse.
A stunning late free-kick at the end of an otherwise quiet outing from the Argentina star made him the top league goalscorer for one club in any of Europe’s top five divisions, surpassing Gerd Muller with his 366th LaLiga goal.
The Catalan giants had returned winless from their last seven trips to Sociedad in the top flight and were primed for further disappointment after falling behind to Willian Jose’s 11th-minute header.
Juanmi doubled the hosts’ lead with a heavily deflected finish after a superb assist from Sergio Canales, but that only served to stir Barca into life and Paulinho reduced the deficit before half-time.
Within five minutes of the restart the scores were level as Luis Suarez finished brilliantly for his 12th league goal of the season.
Suarez then grabbed a second 19 minutes from time after goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli’s poor clearance proved costly for Eusebio Sacristan’s men, with Messi putting the icing on the cake.
The result restores Barca’s nine-point lead at the summit, elevating them 19 ahead of champions Real Madrid, breaking an 11-year spell without a league win at Anoeta in the process.
Barca – without the services of injured new signing Philippe Coutinho – started brightly and Suarez was denied by the onrushing Rulli at the end of a determined run into the Sociedad box, while the keeper also had to be alert to keep out Sergi Roberto soon after.
But the visitors found themselves behind as Willian Jose headed Xabi Prieto’s searching cross into the ground and over Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
