Real Sociedad Scores Brutal Own Goal vs. Barcelona (Video)

Real Sociedad own goal vs Barcelona

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.
