A surprise happened at Anoeta Stadium on the evening of February 22 when top team Barca suffered a heavy defeat against Sociedad.

Alex Song scored an own goal in a corner kick, but then Messi scored the equalizer.

Losing the match while great rival Real won, Barca lost the top spot in the table with three points less than Real.

Messi was disappointed after Barca’s loss.

Barca players did not hide their disappointment after the referee blew the whistle to end the match.

Coach Martino was also disqualified during halftime when he argued with the referees.

The Argentine strategist’s force rotation policy ultimately harmed Barca.

During the 90 minutes of play, despite being the team that held the ball better with 65% of the time, Barca mainly dribbled the ball in the midfield area but could not go deeper into the home team’s penalty area.

Arranging Song and Busquets as a central midfield pair does not bring positive signals.

In the first half, the ball mainly rolled in the midfield area when both sides did not increase the tempo.

Song scored an own goal, helping Sociedad open the score.

While the attackers have not found a way to break through the home team’s defense line, Barca’s defense has made mistakes.

Barca’s defense made many mistakes in this match.

In a situation where it seemed like Barca was trying to find a way to join the game, the Catalan giant suddenly had an equalizer.

After the break, the pace of the match was pushed higher.

A few minutes later, it was French striker Griezmann who made a smart pass, completely eliminating Barca’s defense, following Zurutuza’s momentum and he quickly touched the ball to score the goal to set the score 3-1.
