Barcelona vs Real Sociedad: Yamal and Raphinha Goals Propel Barca to Second in La Liga

Barcelona secured a crucial 2-0 victory over Real Sociedad, with goals from Lamine Yamal and a late Raphinha penalty lifting them into second place in La Liga.

Yamal opened the scoring just before halftime, coolly slotting home after a well-timed pass from Ilkay Gundogan. Despite Sociedad’s keeper Alex Remiro making several saves, Barcelona remained dominant.

Raphinha, a constant threat throughout the match, was denied by Remiro before converting a late penalty awarded for a handball. With regular penalty taker Robert Lewandowski substituted, Raphinha stepped up and sealed the win from 12 yards out.

The victory sees Barcelona move one point ahead of Girona with three games remaining, positioning them well for a strong finish in the league. Meanwhile, Sociedad remains in seventh place.

Yamal’s standout performance earned him the title of Player of the Match, showcasing his talent and potential at just 17 years old. As Barcelona looks ahead, performances like these highlight the promising future ahead for the young star.
