Aubameyang wins a small Barça, the wall Ter Stegen and Isak not successful… Find the Tops and Flops of the Barcelona victory against La Real Sociedad (0-1).
Aubameyang offers victory to Barca
The Gabonese striker, who regained his starting position after starting on the bench against Cadiz, scored the one and only goal of the match. After a good action from the Catalans, the ball returned to the area and Aubameyang headed a good delivery from Torres (10th). The Barcelona striker scored his 8th goal in Barça colors in 10 games played and allowed his club to recover second place in La Liga.
Ter Stegen saves Barca
If the Blaugranas have managed to win on the lawn of Real Sociedad, it is largely thanks to their goalkeeper. The Germany international pulled off a number of important saves to help Barcelona come out on top. When Barça suffered in the second half, he pulled off a magnificent stoppage against Sorloth (58th). Then on a vicious cross from Januzaj, the Catalan goalkeeper released a superb headline to keep his goal untouched (68th). A solid match that allows Barcelona to win in pain.
Isak misses the mark
The Swede didn’t have a great game against Barcelona. Aligned at the forefront of the attack alongside Sorloth, the Real Sociedad striker struggled to stand out and be found by his partners. He misses a huge chance at the end of the first period to allow Real Sociedad to equalise. On a counter that he himself started, Isak is perfectly offset in the area by Sorloth and finds himself alone against Ter Stegen. But the Swedish international crosses his shot too much and misses the equalizer (43rd). Behind, his team will not return to the game.
Eric Garcia struggles when he enters
Entering the game in place of Araujo out on injury (54th), Erik Garcia was in great difficulty. Overall very average this season, the Spaniard lets Sorloth go behind his back who finds himself alone against Ter Stegen who pulls out a parade (58th) to save Barça. He was often taken by opposing attackers and could have conceded a penalty by surrounding a Basque striker in the box in stoppage time. A delicate match for the former Manchester City player.
