  • Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho was accused of making a controversial gesture

Jordi Alba once again showed his potency in attack by scoring the victor against Real Sociedad as Barcelona closed in on the La Liga title.

Barca lead the standings on 77 points after 33 games, comfortably clear of nearest challengers Atletico Madrid who won 1-0 at Eibar earlier in the day.

The final say in the opening half went to the Spaniards, as Clement Lenglet leaped highest to head home Ousmane Dembele's delivery in time added on.

Barca were let off the hook 10 minutes to halftime when Willian Jose fired over the top off a rebound from Marc Andre Ter Stegen. However, Barcelona would hit back nearly immediately when Jordi Alba fired past Geronimo Rulli from just inside the box.

Diego Simeone's men - without suspended forwards Antoine Griezmann and Diego Costa - left it late but took the three points thanks to substitute Thomas Lemar's close-range finish in the 85th minute.

But not with these opponents, because they have physical qualities I have never seen something like that in the last 20 years. They surged into a 4-1 half time lead through two goals from Pedro, an own goal and a tenth Europa League goal from Giroud.

Celta Vigo eased any relegation fears with a 2-1 victory over Girona on Saturday afternoon.

Sociedad made an immediate change at the start of the second half, as Luca Sangalli replaced Igor Zubeldia, while Barca responded with their first change on 56 minutes, bringing on Busquets for a quiet Arthur Melo.

Bottom duo Rayo Vallecano and Huesca shared the points from a goalless draw which does little to aid either's hopes of survival.

Vallecano are five points adrift of 17th placed Levante, who play Espanyol on Sunday, while Huesca are a further two points back.
