Luis Suarez Scores Twice as Barcelona Come Back to Beat Real Sociedad

Luis Suarez Scores Twice as Barcelona Come Back to Beat Real Sociedad

"I have the feeling that we are a very hard team to beat", Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said after Sunday's 4-2 come-from-behind win at Real Sociedad's Anoeta Stadium, where Barcelona hadn't won since 2007.

Football fans on Twitter just couldn't get enough of the finish, with Suarez firmly banishing the claims that he was past his best. In La Liga, Ernesto Valverde's men are on the summit of the table, 11 points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid heading into the weekend's round of fixtures.

Real Sociedad: Geronimo Rulli 6, Alvaro Odriozola 6, Diego Llorente 6, Rodriguez Raul Navas 6, Kevin Rodrigues 6, Xabi Prieto 7, Asier Illarramendi 6, David Zurutuza 7, Sergio Canales 8, Willian Jose 7, Juanmi 7.

Philippe Coutinho completed his 160-million-euro ($192 million) move from Liverpool on Monday in the third richest transfer in history, although a thigh injury will prevent the Brazilian from making his debut on Sunday.

Valencia also won as they took advantage of a terrible goalkeeping error as Deportivo la Coruna keeper Ruben allowed a Goncalo Guedes shot to sneak under his body. "There [in Madrid], they cover it up more".

Barcelona staged a miraculous comeback to beat Real Sociedad 4-2 after being 2-0 down and unsurprisingly Lionel Messi capped it all off with a moment of magic late on.

Luckily the bad run here in LaLiga is over. Lionel Messi and Co. were unstoppable in the second half, ripping the home defense apart with some world-class play.

Suarez has now scored 13 goals in all competitions this season, including 12 in La Liga play.

The coming weeks will determine whether Atletico and Valencia can mount the needed pressure on Barcelona to prevent them from winning the league ahead of schedule as the second round of the league emergencies. We've always managed to get the three points there, but it's a hard place.

But, La Real have only won one of their last seven La Liga games (D3 L3), failing to score in three of their last four, and this could just be the year when the Anoeta curse ends.

While he's yet to hit the back of the net, Dembele has created a few goals, while playing a starring role for Barcelona during their Copa del Rey game versus Celta Vigo.
