And finally, Barcelona's pathetic run at Anoeta continues. They haven't won at the stadium since 2007 and it wasn't to end tonight as Sociedad ensured. The Catalan side have now failed to win in seven games against Sociedad at Anoeta, losing 5 and drawing 2. Will they be able to break this poor record any time soon? Your guess is as good as mine.
Barcelona are struggling, the league is slipping from their hands. Luis Enrique needs to do something and do it fast or Real Madrid could soon be out of sight. They already have a 7-point cushion, which can grow further in the El Clasico next Saturday.
The offside decision will be the biggest talking point of the game. Junami was a good 2-yards onside when the assistant flagged him off. Even when, it looked like Vela's initial effort could have crossed the line in itself.
Real Sociedad must feel hard done. They were the better team and deserved to win but that is football. They failed to bury their chances and it cost them two points at the end. Vela and Prieto were specially impressive and were denied by the posts on many occasions and on one by the referee.
Barcelona were pathetic on the night and should be happy with the point. But their league form must be worrying for Luis Enrique and Real Madrid must be licking their lips watching this, waiting to destroy the Blaugrana at Santiago Bernabeu next Saturday.
