Real Sociedad defeat Barcelona 1-0
January 5 , 2015
An early own goal helped Real Sociedad score a 1-0 La Liga victory over Barcelona, media reports say.
With Real Madrid losing 2-1 at Valencia, Barcelona had a chance to reach the top of the league, but some great defending by Real Sociedad in the second half frustrated their chances.
Barcelona started with stars Lionel Messi and Neymar on the bench. Sociedad got the start they wanted after an own goal in the second minute from Jordi Alba.
