Real Sociedad




Here are the teams for both sides! Nearly time for kick off


A woman is singing a song while the players and some very plainly dressed men watch on. I don't really get it but I'm pretty sure she just said football and it's greeted by applause

A traditional basque song and then the honorary kick off

And the game is underway. Real sociedad are the home team and they get the game started (1)

Barcelona with the ball now though and they keep it as Paulinho is fouled (2)

Barcelona already getting forward. Paulinho playing quite wide at this stage. Not really sure how Barcelona are lining up yet but Suarez breaks through, nutmegging llorente and Rulli is out to claim (3)

Real sociedad follow that up with their own attack and when Barcelona counter Gomes goes down, giving them a second chance. Quite open so far (4)

Neither team with a chance better than suarez's earlier but action all over the pitch (8)

Rakitic plays the ball to Sergi Roberto whose cross is cleared for a throw in by llorente. Messi gets away from the defenders and sends a shot not far off target (9)

Barcelona on top now but they need two headed clearances from Piqué after good work from prieto and illarramendi (12)
