Sport : Barcelona 1 - 0 Real Sociedad Spanish

Fast Video Barcelona 1 - 0 Real

Barcelona finish with victory but it’s not about the result tonight. It is about one man and one man alone. Infinit Iniesta. Andres Iniesta makes final Barcelona appearance as the prolific Midfielder has spent 16 years at the club, winning 22 trophies.
Iniesta ends Barcelona career with win over Real Sociedad, Andres Iniesta capped his stellar career at Barcelona with victory over Real Sociedad in his final game.
The Spain midfielder, 34, is leaving the La Liga champions at the end of the season after winning 19 major titles in 16 years with the senior side.
Fans formed a mosaic with the message ‘Forever Iniesta’ prior to the game. Iniesta was typically assured in possession but the tired hosts needed a stunning strike by Philippe Coutinho to end their season with a win.
The former Liverpool midfielder cut in from the left and curled a powerful effort in off the far post on 57 minutes. Iniesta, who captained the side, was replaced in the 82nd minute, embracing all of his team-mates and acknowledging the Nou Camp crowd with tears in his eyes.
It wasn’t a high scoring affair and Barcelona didn’t have it all their own way but the hosts get all three points in the final game of the LaLiga season. Coutinho’s wonderful strike secured a 1-0 win against a Real Sociedad side that performed admirably but all the focus, as it should be, has been on Andres Iniesta.
Iniesta’s illustrious Barcelona career comes to a close after years of success with the Catalan club and the national side. A new venture awaits for the veteran midfielder and Ernesto Valverde has a stern task on his hands in the months ahead to try to find a replacement for the legendary number eight.
It’s not been a season to remember for Real Sociedad, who finish in mid-table, but they performed well tonight and gave Barcelona a decent run for their money. They’ve also waved goodbye to a club legend, as Xabi Prieto made his final appearance for the Basque side.
