Spanish LaLiga Report: Real Sociedad v FC Barcelona 15 September 2018

Barcelona scored two goals in three second-half minutes to come from behind and beat Real Sociedad to maintain their 100% start to the La Liga season.

But Luis Suarez scrambled the ball home in the 63rd minute before Ousmane Dembele converted at another corner.

Real are second in the La Liga standings with 10 points after four games.

However, Barca were level after 63 minutes as Luis Suarez smashed home from close range after the hosts failed to deal with a corner.

According to BBC, Barca goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen made two fine saves, denying Real Madrid loanee Theo Hernandez and Juanmi while Mikel Oyarzabal blazed over at the end of a quick counter-attack.

Barely a minute after Ter Stegen had blocked a gaping chance for Juanmi, Uruguayan striker Suarez took advantage of some confusion in the area following a free kick and smashed home from close range to the disbelief of the home supporters.

Barcelona were poor in the first half and also capitalised on goalkeeping errors for both goals with Geronimo Rulli missing punches at both set pieces.

"I think these are the type of games which make a difference over a season", he said. We turned around a game we were losing here last year, too, when it had been eight or nine years since a [league] win [at Anoeta]. "It's a huge win for our confidence".

Iker Muniain gave Athletic a deserved lead in the 32nd minute by bundling the ball home after Real failed to get back in time to defend a counter-attack.

The home side had a slew of chances during an entertaining, end-to-end first half, while Real were twice denied by Athletic's impressive 21-year-old goalkeeper Unai Simon.

"This is a very hard ground to come to, for the team they have and for how they play".

Ernesto Valverde opted for a change at the start of the second half as Nelson Semedo made way for Philippe Coutinho as the visitros went in search of an equaliser.
