Barcelona extended their win streak in La Liga with a 2-1 victory over Real Sociedad on Wednesday. The home side was coming off a 1-0 win against UD Levante ahead of Wednesday’s game against Sociedad, and Jordi Alba and Frenkie de Jong offered the heroics in front of purpose to keep Barca’s new found winning ways rolling on.

It’s now a two game win streak for Barcelona who did well to get off on the right foot to start the match. The team were connecting better than they have been for large stretches this season, looking less slim with American Sergino Dest getting involved in attacks up the right flank. However for all their early dominance, it was Real Sociedad who would open the scoring. Barcelona had plentu of early looks on goal but it was Real Sociedad who broke through on their first shot.

A failed clearance off a corner would be retained by Robin Le Normand and a link up between him and Portu caused some confusion for Barca’s back line as Willian Jose was there for the tap in on the opening goal.

The lead would be short lived as Barcelona remained dangerous in attack, finding the equalizer simply 4 minutes later. Antoine Griezmann would settle a ball and his pass would deflect to a waiting Alba with area in the field to make things level, burying the ball in the upper proper nook.

Barcelona‘s quick passing and involved play from inverted outside backs would ensure Actual Sociedad were occupied with sustaining their lead, defending towards Barcelonas stress, rather than creating, and the go ahead goal would happen for Barca just ahead of halftime in the 43rd minute.
