Barca lost to real Sociedad on all counts, and only a miracle could save three points in yesterday’s match.
The match against real Sociedad promised blue-pomegranate the easy walk. More than 9 years, the Catalans can’t get three points for the away team, because no one doubted that this time it will not be easy, but the fact that the owners will completely outplay a team Enrique, was not expecting anyone.
The advantage of Sociedad was visible to the naked eye, in the end, be reflected in statistical indicators by which to beat Barcelona is almost impossible.
The Basques beat the Catalans in all respects. First and foremost, it is worth mentioning the possession of the ball. The figure in which the Blaugrana are without exaggeration the best in the world, this time was not in their favor. Sociedad controlled the ball 52 percent of the playing time, thus becoming the first team this season that was able to beat Barcelona in this component.

The hosts not just possessed the ball and created chances, which ended in blows, at the same time demonstrating a very attentive game in defence. For the entire match, the Catalans struck 10 shots on goal, of which only two were on target – including the most effective shot of Lionel Messi. At the same time on account of Sociedad 17 hits and 6 accurate hits, considering Willian scored the ball. Peplum also twice hit the woodwork, first team, Enrique was saved from conceding a goal by the crossbar and the second rod.
Small statistics also tells about the advantage of the hosts – on their account 8 6 corner kicks against the opponent, 2 yellow cards against 4 and 23 throw in from the sideline against 14. Really fouled and Sociedad also more – having made 16 of misconduct against 11 in Barca.
Thus, the result of the match the Catalans for real Sociedad can be considered the salvation of the blue garnet, which probably got a point rather than lost two. If this be the referees of the match a bit more professional, the Catalans would have managed to avoid defeat. A curious episode occurred at the 76 minute of the match when the ball was in the gate of Barcelona, but the goal was disallowed for an imaginary offside.
