Barcelona came from behind to knock out Real Sociedad from the La Liga top spot on Wednesday’s game.

Willian Jose tapped sociedad into the lead in the 27th minute Portu’s unselfish ball but Jordi Alba levelled with a fine right-footed strike.

The goal was initially ruled out for offside, but given after a video assistant referee review.

Antoine Griezmann hit the bar for Barca from a tight angle and missed a glorious chance when he tried to slide the ball into an empty net but deflected it to the keeper.

Real Sociedad – who had drawn their past six games – went close late on but Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s double save denied Jose and Alexander Isak.

Atletico Madrid, Real Sociedad and Real Madrid are all level on 26 points at the top of La Liga, with Barcelona now only six points behind, making climbed to fifth.
