FC Barcelona got three gold points against a Real Sociedad that was close to taking them away. Those led by Xavi started the game strongly, but from the second half they lowered the intensity and the victory almost escaped them
The FC Barcelona faced the meeting in front of the Real Sociedad like a 'final' of face to ensure his place in the next edition of the Champions League. The Barcelona group arrived to the party with two defeats in crucial parties to his 'back' and the need imperiosa to give him 'gone back' to the bad series lived in the last dates. Of this way, Xavi left clear his intensiones from the previous of the party, when it put the best that had to disposal for enfretentar to the donostiarras.
The players blaugranas understood, in principle, the importance of the crash and the important that was to achieve the three points in front of a direct rival in his aspirations to classify to the League of Champions. In spite of that went out 'cold' to the field of game and suffered during some minutes the pressure of the Real, the culés attained to surpass the 'ventarrón' and little by little were approaching to the area of Álex Remiro. Of this way arrived the first goal to the minute 11, after a good played of Gavi that 'struggled' by the balloon until doing it his and enabled to Ferran, that put the ball in the head of an Aubameyang that 'grieve' had to jump.
After the goal, the Catalans followed insisting, with a Dembélé that is every time better and that it was a constant threat by the right band of Anoeta. The Real, however, did not see affected by the so much of the gabonés and followed grasping to the 'plan' of Bailiff, that trusted his two 'towers' in the forward to hurt him to a Barça that in defence is very 'blandito'. Even so, the Barcelona could increase his advantage taking advantage of the spaces that left the donostiarras in the retaguardia, but neither 'Auba', neither Ferran, neither Of Jong were 'fine' in the definition.
A second part of 'terror'
The directed by Xavi Hernández went to the changing rooms with a 'fright' in the breast, after a 'hand manually' between Isak and Ter Stegen that the Swedish did not know to take advantage of. Nevertheless, the ones of San Sebastián followed the 'siege' in the second half in front of a FC Barcelona that was 'difuminando' with the happen of the minutes and that saw several times like the advantage in the marker could them escape of the 'hands'. Besides, the injuries of Araújo and Dani Alves forced to move the defence, that already had a Hammered quite 'mermado' physically, spending two changes that could be used of another form.
And like this it followed the meeting, with some players of the Real Sociedad that did not abandon the last 30 metres of the field and a Barça 'shut' in his area and without showing reaction. Another '1 vs 1', this time with Sorloth in attack, could have put tables in the marker of not being by a Ter Stegen 'milagroso'. The blaugranas 'grasped' to the goal of Aubameyang, and of this way went out life of the Reale Sand. The party left the feeling that if the forwards donostiarras had been a bit more atinados, the result would have been distinct. However, it is necessary to know suffer to win, and go that the Barça suffered.
