La Liga Roundup: Barcelona come back from behind to stun Real Sociedad

Barcelona‘s 2-1 victory at the Nou Camp against Real Sociedad ensured the visitors vacate the top spot in La Liga.

The victory also means Barcelona move up to fifth, while Atletico Madrid are now the league leaders on goal difference with Real Sociedad in second place.

Willian Jose handed the visitors the perfect start, converting Portu’s pass in the 27th minute, but Barcelona hit back through Jordi Alba who pulled the hosts level with an excellent curled strike four minutes later.

Frenkie de Jong then put Barca ahead just before the break from Alba’s deflected cross. The goal was initially ruled as an offside, but a VAR review concluded it was a goal.

Antoine Griezmann hit the crossbar as Barca tried to make the game safe from a tight angle and he spurned an excellent opportunity, deflecting the ball to the goalkeeper with the goal at his mercy.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen was also in inspired form, making a double save to deny Jose and Alexander Isak as Real Sociedad pushed for a late equaliser.

Watch the highlights of the match below

Atletico Madrid, Real Sociedad, and Real Madrid are all level on 26 points at the top of La Liga, with Barcelona, who jumped from eighth to fifth, now only six points further back.
