Former Arsenal forward Aubameyang was on target as Barcelona returned to winning ways. The striker scored with a close-range header after a cross by ex-Manchester City player Ferran Torres. Marc-Andre ter Stegen saved well from Alexander Sorloth while Alexander Isak fired another chance wide to help his side grab all three points.
Aubameyang’s Goal Help Barca Return to Winning Ways
Shortly before Aubameyang’s goal, Ousmane Dembele’s shot came back off the post. It is a Relive from Barcelona because they have lost two games at home and the results questioned their abilities, so the win returned them to their impressive form.
Barca was made to work hard for the points with Sorloth missing a further two chances as Real Sociedad piled on the pressure after half-time. The game was briefly stopped early in the second half after an object was thrown onto the pitch.
32-year-old Aubameyang who joined Barca on a free transfer in February after not playing for Arsenal following a disciplinary breach in December has been in top form for the club since his arrival. Only Memphis Depay has scored more goals in La Liga for Barca this season than him.
Barcelona’s win lifts them into the second spot on 63 points – 15 behind runaway leaders Real Madrid. Real Sociedad remains sixth in the table – six points off a Champions League spot with five games left. Real Madrid needs four points from their last five games to secure a 35th La Liga title.
