Barcelona vs Real Sociedad results: Score 2-0

Barcelona successfully beat Real Sociedad with a score of 2-0 in the match 35 La Liga 2023/2024 which was held at the Estadio Olimpico Lluis Companys, Monday (13/5/2024).

Barcelona’s two winning goals in this match each came in the first half through Lamine Yamal’s action and Raphinha’s penalty execution at the end of the second half.

Thanks to this result, Barcelona has the right to return to second place in the standings with 76 points, shifting Girona. Meanwhile, Sociedad is in seventh place with 54 points.

Barcelona tried to immediately play aggressively from the start of the match. However, the hosts failed to convert a number of opportunities into goals.

Barca was only able to break the deadlock in the 40th minute through Yamal’s action. Starting from the build up of a sharp attack, Yamal was able to convert Ilkay Gundogan’s assist into a goal.

Entering the second half, Barca still dominated the game. However, they had difficulty dismantling the visitors’ tight defense. On the other hand, Sociedad threatened the hosts’ back line several times.

When the match entered injury time, the referee gave Barca a penalty after VAR assessed that there was a violation in the forbidden box. Raphinha also successfully completed this penalty for the hosts’ second goal.

Lamine Yamal deserves to be chosen as the best player in Barcelona’s 2-0 win over Real Sociedad.

Yamal played impressively in this match. This young man, who is only 16 years old, contributed to scoring the opening goal with a charming process, starting with a cool attack build up.

In this match, Yamal recorded three shots, four successful dribbles, four times sending the ball into the heart of the opponent’s defense, and touching the ball seven times in the Sociedad penalty box.

Yamal also recorded 11 wins in duels, and his explosive movements forced opponents to foul him five times.

This season, Girona’s revival was a big surprise in La Liga. Girona even led the standings for several weeks, being favored as a surprise in the championship competition.

So what’s interesting is that Barca themselves have become victims of Girona’s toughness. They have lost twice to Girona this season, home and away, both times with a score of 2-4.

At the beginning of May, Barca had just lost on a visit to Girona headquarters. The defeat saw them drop to third place, Girona rose to second place.

So this week, there has been another change in the standings. Girona dropped points after being held to a 2-2 draw by Alaves, so Barca has the opportunity to move up to second place.

Xavi’s squad maximized this opportunity in the match against Real Sociedad. Barca won 2-0, securing three points, and moved back up to second place.

Currently Barca has collected 76 points, Girona with 75 points. There are still three matches left, the competition between these two teams will be exciting!
