The Great Barca Can Be Defeated

Posted: Jan. 31st, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

After the Barcelona side went up in the 25th minute of the match it looked like it was going to be a landslide. The ending was anything but a landslide; it turned out to be an upset. Real Sociedad came back to stun the 10-man side after Gerard Pique earned himself a red Card. The final result was 3-2.

Real Sociedad hit back from two goals down to beat 10-man Barcelona 3-2 and end their unbeaten La Liga record in stunning fashion at the Anoeta.

All looked to be going to plan for Tito Vilanova's visitors when Lionel Messi and Pedro Rodriguez put them two goals up within 25 minutes.

But Gonzalo Castro's brilliant strike gave Sociedad hope before half-time and then, after Barca had lost centre-back Gerard Pique to a red card, Castro's curling effort was deflected into his own net by Barca substitute Javier Mascherano.
