The results of the La Liga game against Real Sociedad were summarised by Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman (2-1).
“This is a very necessary success and we deserve it. The second half was tougher, and the enemy created more openings. We’ve been playing against a fantastic team that is in the first place. But the first half was good, and we were expected to score more,” Koeman told Marca.
“It was an open match, with Sociedad knowing how to play well. But Barcelona deservedly won. After the first goal, it was really necessary to get back into the game because we did not deserve to get behind. A lot of games are still ahead, things can happen and a lot depends on us.”
