Barcelona seal stunning comeback win at Sociedad

Barcelona seal stunning comeback win at Sociedad”

The Uruguayan was fed by Lionel Messi, whose darting run through the centre created space on the left-hand side, before the former Liverpool striker was fed possession just inside the area, opened up his body and deftly curled a simply sensational chip over the flat-footed custodian to claw Blaugrana level.

Barcelona's main opponents at the Spanish League title, Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Real Madrid wishthis curse continues to decrease the gap at the League table between them and Barcelona, as Barcelona leads the League with sixpoints clear before Sunday game. Real Madrid are 16 points off Deportivo La Coruna who occupy 18th.

"Our bad run here in the league is finally over", Suarez said.

Atletico Madrid rode their luck to win 1-0 away to Eibar thanks to a first half goal from Kevin Gameiro. "We are happy with the season we are having, after the hard start we had", said Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde.

Sociedad got off to an ideal start in the 11th when Xabi Prieto swung in a long cross from the left to Willian Jose, who headed the ball off the turf and over the reach of goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

However, Valverde's men got one back sharpish, Paulinho toeing home from close range to make it 2-1 at the break.

Rulli's long clearance was sacked back with a powerful shot by Thomas Vermaelen that found Suarez clean through on and ready to crash home Barca's third.

Messi took his league-leading tally to 17 goals.

The defeat for Sevilla extends Vincenzo Montella's losing start in La Liga, with the Italian guiding his new club to two straight league losses since replacing cancer-stricken Eduardo Berizzo, following last week's 5-3 home Seville derby loss to Betis.

"We are very disappointed".

Sevilla was left in sixth place after Villarreal moved ahead in the standings on Saturday.

A tight game of few chances was decided by Manu Garcia's 52nd minute volley, although Alaves did enough to deserve all three points.

Aspas, who is a Spain worldwide, denies racially abusing Lerma.

Espanyol played out a 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao in Sunday's other game, with Inaki Williams equalising for the Basques six minutes after Gerard Moreno's 29th-minute opener.
