The curse of Anoeta struck Barcelona again as they made it nine years without beating Real Sociedad in San Sebastian. Of greater concern will be the way they delievered their worst performance of the season so far just a week before the Clasico.
Gerard Pique said on the final whistle: ‘We just weren’t there in the first half. We will not win the league like this. They bettered us in the way they played and in their attitude.’
Despite the dismal display Luis Enrique’s team escaped with a draw but it should have been worse when second half substitute Juanmi had a winner wrongly ruled out for offside. Leo Messi had earlier cancelled out Willian Jose’s opener to earn the 1-1 draw.
