After Sociedad took the lead from the penalty spot, Barcelona bounced back through Antoine Griezmann and Luis Suarez but an error from goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen allowed Alexander Isak to concede.
This has always been an interesting clash, with La Real standing in fourth place after impressing in all seasons, on the Champions League Barcelona is still a stronger favourite for the win but the draw with Sociedad impact the la Liga table
Early warning signs came in Barcelona on Saturday, when Isied boldly stepped forward Isak cut across his defense and set up Mikel Oyarzabal, who chose to cross when he should probably shoot better.
However, it will not be long before La Real has the goal to dominate early.
Eagle eye referee Antonio Rojas discovered Sergio Busquets’ pull on Diego Llorente’s shirt and, after a short pause to confirm from VAR, pointed to the spot.
With three fronts of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Antoine Griezmann, Barcelona was never eliminated from the game.
In the blink of an eye, Suarez won the ball in the middle of the field and slid Griezmann over the goal to allow the Frenchman to deftly pass the ball over the rising Alex Remiro and into the far corner.
It was difficult for Sociedad but Barcelona was in no mood to feel sorry for his opponent and less than four minutes after the second half, Suarez was faced with the misery of the home team.
Messi rushes past Busquet’s exact score on top and squares the ball for his Uruguayan teammate to score the easiest.
But it’s no wonder these Sociedad players have elevated the club to fourth place in La Liga this season and they believe they can match any team in the tournament.
Annoyed by the constant noise of the home fans, Sociedad set up an equalizer and was rewarded shortly after the time was over when an unusual error by Ter Stegen allowed Isak to touch the ball into an empty net.
There was some controversy in the closing stages when Pique went down inside the box and he was fouled by Llorente when he tried to go home to the winner.
After consulting with VAR, his appeals were dispelled and the visitors had to settle just one point from an enchanting game.
