Barcelona continue to dominate La Liga, winning 4-0 at home against Real Sociedad with another fantastic performance. The whole team was dominating, and the 'MSN' trio all got in the scoreboard to give the Blaugranes one more victory, extending the unbeaten streak to 10 matches. The team still looks unstoppable, if you're wondering.

FIRST HALF

Barça had a difficult start to the match due to Sociedad's very high and intense pressing. The visitors were solid and recovered quite a few balls close to the box, but the Blaugranes were always quick to erase any remote chance of a shot. As the minutes went on, the Catalans started gaining territory, and Lionel Messi got more involved. The Argentinian played a nice little ball to Dani Alves, who crossed it to Neymar that buried home the opening goal.

With a cushion in the score, the hosts were much more comfortable and didn't get the same pressure from La Real. Barça continued to dominate possession and pick the right moment to attack. Not a lot of chances were created, but the efficiency was there. A sensational long pass from Iniesta found Alves again, and the Brazilian again delivered a great cross, this time to Luis Suárez, who scored a magical goal with an unbelievable volley.

Two-nothing, and a very good and satisfying half.

SECOND HALF

The game got easier very early in the second period, thanks to a lackluster defensive start by Sociedad, who went forward and left gaps behind. Iniesta saw one and found Mathieu with a through ball, and the French left-back assisted Neymar for the third. Game over.

But there was still time for Leo to score. Beautiful one-two between Suárez and Neymar, who served Messi to give all MSN members a goal. Great win again.
