Barcelona extend lead to five

Barcelona moved one step closer to winning the La Liga title after beating Real Sociedad 2-0, thanks to a header from Neymar and a stunning overhead kick from Pedro in the second half.

Luis Enrique’s side could not offer the same barnstorming performance that saw them romp to victory over Bayern Munich on Wednesday, as David Moyes’ side produced another impressive defensive display against the Catalans, but their resistance wilted after the break.

All Barcelona must do now is win at Atletico Madrid next Sunday and overcome Deportivo La Coruna at the Camp Nou the following week and a 23rd title will be theirs.
