The trainer of the FC Barcelona, Luis Enrique, left of start in the bench against the Real Socidad to Messi, Neymar, Rakitic, Hammered and Alves even knowing that the Real Madrid finish to lose against Valencia, and that it was unforgivable "to puncture" in Anoeta

The FC Barcelona of Luis Enrique Martínez did not know to take advantage of neither much less the defeat of the Real Madrid in Mestalla, and gave even more margin to the group "merengue" losing surprisingly in Anoeta against the Real Sociedad, in a party marked from the beginning by the absences -to decision of the own "Struggle"- and by a tempranero goal in own door of Jordi Alba when it tried to clear an aerial balloon inside the area of Claudio Bravo.

Luis Enrique, that gave holidays of Christmas to Neymar, Messi and Dani Alves until this past Friday, decided to not to use them from the start of the meeting against the Real Sociedad, in a so risky strategy that at the end cost him face. 

The Barça did not have hardly clear occasions in the first part with Luis Suárez, Munir and Pedro Rodríguez, and in the second part gave the feeling that Neymar went in too late, with a Messi that it neither had of the necessary freshness as to create clear opportunities of goal. 

An also surprising fact, in any case, went that Luis Enrique went back to leave in the bench by enésima time to Ivan Rakitic when the Croat, precisely, had arrived this summer to the team to relieve generacionalmente to Xavi Hernández. Martín Montoya, besides, went back to be headline by third consecutive time.
