Leo Messi & Luis Suarez combine for a truly outrageous goal vs Real Sociedad

Barcelona have the weirdest curse when it comes to playing Real Sociedad on their home turf.

The Blaugrana have not won at the Anoeta since 2007, when Samuel Eto'o and Andres Iniesta scored the goals for the Catalonian giants.

Ever since, they have remained winless in La Liga, although they did win there in the Copa Del Rey last season, courtesy of a goal from Neymar in a 1-0 victory.

On Sunday evening, it appeared as if the curse was as rampant as ever as La Real went into a 2-0 first-half lead.

Willian Jose and Juanmi scored two very well-worked goals, however, Ernesto Valverde's side fought back, with Paulinho scoring shortly before the break, taking his season tally to eight for the season in the league - four more than Cristiano Ronaldo.

And, around five minutes into the second period, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez combined for a truly stunning equaliser.

Messi picked up the ball and drove at the Sociedad defence, before shifting the ball out to Suarez and the Uruguayan produced the most outrageous of finishes.

This was reminiscent of the old Suarez we saw at Liverpool in that amazing 2013/14 season.


Yeah, that is pretty special.

Football fans on Twitter just couldn't get enough of the finish, with Suarez firmly banishing the claims that he was past his best.


With Suarez back to somewhere near his best, Messi doing his usual thing, Ousmane Dembele back fit and Philippe Coutinho signed from Liverpool, Barca look in a very good place right now.

At this moment in time, you'd have to say they're the favourites to lift the Champions League.
