Jodi Alba secured a winner for Barcelona against Real Sociedad

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.
