Real Sociedad Scores Brutal Own Goal vs. Barcelona (Video)
Barcelona probably didn’t need any help during the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final match-up against Real Sociedad, but they received some anyway. And the Sociedad players probably couldn’t have made it any more embarrassing if they had tried, as midfielder Gorka Elustondo blasted a clearing attempt off the face of his own keeper, Enaut Zubikarai, and into the net for the atrocious own goal.
Check it out:
To make maters worse (if that’s even possible), Sociedad was only losing by a score of 1-0 at the time. Had they escaped Camp Nou with that scoreline, it would have given them a good shot at pulling off the upset when they return home for the second leg against Barcelona next week.
But they didn’t. And now they trail 2-0 in aggregate, and all we’ll ever really remember about their long Copa del Rey run is this embarrassing own goal that all but did them in.
