LaLiga: Lewandowski score’s brace as Barcelona trash Real Sociedad 4-1



It is impossible to imagine a better way for Robert Lewandowski to mark his 34th birthday than by scoring the opening goal for Barcelona against Real Sociedad.

Barcelona defeated Real Sociedad, who played admirably for the majority of the game, 4-1 thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s first two goals for the team.

The youthful left back made a strong run, and the Polish striker capitalized by heading home Alejandro Balde’s low cross inside the opening minute to make the most of his birthday.

Just a few minutes later, however, Swedish striker Aleksandr Isak equalized the score with a dink over Marc-Andre Ter Stegen. At the end of an even half, the score was 1-1.

Barcelona performed admirably in the second period, seizing their opportunities and finishing with a spring in their step despite the disappointing final score.

In the 53rd minute, La Real had the ball in the net, but it was properly disallowed for offside.

They would go from thinking they were ahead to watching the game slip away in only 15 minutes.

In the 66th minute, Ousmane Dembele scored the second goal for the Blaugrana following a deft backheel by Ansu Fati.

Two minutes later, Lewandowski buried the second of his birthday brace with a superb pounce in the box.

At 3-1 in favor of the visitors, the Reale Arena game was done, but Barcelona still had something to say.

This time, Lewandowski took the role of the provider by backheeling the ball to Ansu Fati in the back, who calmly finished from close range.

The game in Donostia concluded 4-1, and the hosts were disappointed by the outcome since they believed it didn’t really reflect how evenly matched the teams were.
