Alejandro Balde: Turned off
It suffered to Take Kubo in the first part, but lució firmer in the complement neutralising to the Japanese and to Brais Méndez. Nevertheless, it contributed very little in attack, since, unlike other parties, did not have so much gone and turn.
Had the only clear of the Barça in the first part in a big recovery in front of Mikel Merino. The '6' had everything to finish to door, but wanted to look for to Lewandowski and the played dispelled . In the complement was much more retarded, doing of '5' in front of the improvised centre of the field culé.

After this disappeared and Lamine ingresó in his place in the 78'.
The Pole lució quite turn# off in the 57 minutes that was in action, isolated by a Real Sociedad that controlled without problems the centre of the field from the start. Xavi put to Ferran in his place to try take advantage of the mobility of the of Foiós.
Ferran Torres: Missing
It generated an action of danger in the first played in which it participated, trying associate with Gündogan for desordenar the bottom 'txuri urdin'. However, it participated very little in attack since and could not be the revulsivo that Xavi needed, slipping in a pair of clear opportunities to finish to door.
