Barcelona slip up ahead of El Clasico with draw against Real Sociedad

Luis Suarez of FC Barcelona duels for the ball with Mikel Oyarzabal of Real Sociedad during the Liga match between Real Sociedad and FC Barcelona at Estadio Anoeta.

Barcelona suffered a potentially costly slip-up ahead of Wednesday’s Clasico as they were held to a 2-2 draw at Real Sociedad.

Luis Suarez scored one goal and made another as Ernesto Valverde’s men, who had won their previous six games in all competitions, came from behind to lead at Anoeta.

However, Alexander Isak’s 62nd-minute strike earned fourth-placed Sociedad a deserved share of the spoils, meaning Real Madrid now have the chance to move two points clear at the top of LaLiga with victory at Valencia on Sunday.

Barca could have few complaints about their failure to win, having been outplayed for large parts of an entertaining contest, and the champions will know they must deliver an improved display against Madrid in their next match.
