The Argentinian was key again to earn the points against a very difficult opponent

Luis Enrique's team is nowdays insecure but agressive, with mistakes in defence but accurate in attack. Barcelona earned three very important points against Real Sociedad to keep their La Liga title dreams alive, but once again the team conceded two many chances and a couple of soft goals (3-2).

Five goals were scored in a crazy first half and if Real Sociedad didn't get more than two was because of Marc André Ter Stegen's good efforts.

Without Neymar, banned, Alcacer played in the left wing and with a good performance -his best as a Barcelona player- could start again next week at El Bernabéu.

Messi was again the leader, scored the first one when Barcelona were in a bad moment, scored the second a few minutes later and gave the third to Alcacer. Sergi Roberto was one of the team's best and showed he is in a very good moment.

Barcelona's second half was not good enough but al least no more goals were conceded. Rakitic and Suarez had clear chances to kill the match. Three points more, next step trying the impossible again against Juventus.
