  1. Goodnight

    Thanks for joining us today for a thoroughly entertaining game. It's rare Barcelona are lucky to pick up a point against a side not from Madrid. But that was the case today.

    Join us next weekend for El Clasico, which has the annoying kick-off time of 15:15 GMT.

  2. Post update

    Real Sociedad put in one of the performances of the season and dominated Barcelona here. They won on possession (52%-48%), shots (17-10), shots on target (6-2) and corners (8-6).

    But as good as they were, they could not find a second goal. Well not one the referee would allow anyway. 

    If Barca play like that next weekend, against Real Madrid's more clinical finishers, they will lose - and they will be nine points adrift.

  3. Post update

    For Barcelona, it is their eighth attempt without a win in away games with Real Sociedad. Unless they have another chance in the cup this season, that run will now stretch a decade. 

    They last won at Anoeta in May 2007.

    And crucially they are now six points behind Real Madrid going into next Saturday's meeting with their arch-rivals.

  4. Post update

    Real Sociedad, who miss the chance to go into the Champions League places, were so unlucky not to win today - Carlos Vela hit the woodwork twice and Juanmi had a goal wrongly ruled out for offside. It wasn't even close.

    Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba picks up a late yellow card. 

  7. Post update

    The Real Sociedad keeper is up and can play on. We're past the time added on now.


    Killing time now? Real Sociedad keeper Geronimo Rulli is down and wants treatment. He collided with one of his own players.

    We're in two minutes of stoppage time but there will be more.

  9. Post update

    Esteban Granero, who used to play for Real Madrid, is averaging a shot a minute since coming on, the latest effort flies over.


    Real Sociedad really are going for a winner here, but Esteban Granero's shot is straight at keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen. 

    La Real's David Zurutuza is now booked for taking out Lionel Messi. Not long left.

    Real Sociedad midfielder Esteban Granero's first touch of the ball since May results in a shot over the bar from 20 yards.


    Just before that change, Denis Suarez got booked for a foul on Carlos Vela, who has looked like a world beater today.


    Real Sociedad make their final change as Esteban Granero, once of QPR, comes on for his first appearance of the season. He replaces Mikel Oyarzabal in midfield.


    Carlos Vela hits the woodwork for the second time. Barcelona's defence stand off and let him shoot, his effort from the edge of the box clips the base of the post. Real Sociedad have been so good here, they really should be ahead.

    Luis Suarez blazes a shot over from inside the box. He's had a really poor game.

    Kyle:  The way Barcelona have defended this weekend is very worrying ahead of next weekend's clash with Real Madrid. 

    If they play like this next weekend, they will lose 5-0

  17. Post update

    Barcelona have one of their best chances of the game as Denis Suarez goes around the keeper but his effort is cleared off the line.

    And from the corner, Javier Mascherano heads wide.


    I'm upgrading that last entry. We've just seen a replay. Real Sociedad should be ahead. Carlos Vela's shot didn't cross the line, but Juanmi - who tapped home the rebound seconds after coming on - was miles onside when Vela hit his shot. 


    Real Sociedad are so close to going ahead again. Carlos Vela has a go from 20 yards and it hits the crossbar - it must go close to being over the line. The rebound is slammed home, but ruled out for offside. Vela's shot would have counted though.
