A good achievement…the importance of Barcelona’s victory over Sociedad

Perhaps Barcelona’s 2-0 victory over Real Sociedad at the Luis Companis Olympic Stadium was not ordinary for various reasons.

The first and most important reason is the Catalan club’s return to second place after its loss in the last round, following a 4-2 loss to Girona.

Coach Xavi Hernandez’s squad now has 76 points, a point ahead of Girona, with only 3 rounds remaining in La Liga.

Barcelona hopes to secure second place in order to be present in the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia next January, which will bring significant economic returns for the Catalan club.

The victory over Sociedad was historic for another reason, as it was the first time since the 2006-2007 season that Barcelona succeeded in coming out with a clean sheet against the Basque club, back and forth.

The first round match at Anoeta Stadium ended with Barcelona winning 1-0 thanks to a goal by defender Ronald Araujo.

For nearly twenty years, the Anoeta Stadium was stubborn against Barca, and Sociedad was good at scoring, whether at home or away, at least once, but Xavi and his team finally succeeded in ending this matter.
