Barcelona 2-1 Real Sociedad
Jordi Alba once again showed his potency in attack by scoring the winner against Real Sociedad as Barcelona closed in on the La Liga title.
The Spanish full-back found the net with a brilliant low strike only two minutes after Juanmi had equalized for the visitors.
Clement Lenglet, another Barcelona defender, gave Barca a first-half lead with his header from a corner.
Sociedad’s Gero Rulli made an excellent one-handed save to deny Luis Suarez.
Victory meant Barcelona re-established their nine-point lead which was temporarily reduced when second-placed Atletico Madrid defeated Eibar 1-0 earlier on Saturday.
Coach Ernesto Valverde’s team now only need six points from their remaining five games to retain the La Liga crown.
