BARCELONA:  Raphinha and Lamine Yamal struck to earn Barcelona a 2-0 victory against Real Sociedad on Monday, taking their side second slot, a point above Catalan rivals Girona.

Defeat is a major setback to La Real’s ambitions of playing Europa League football in upcoming season, leaving them 7th behind Real Betis, who claimed victory on Sunday.

Last season’s champions team Barcelona are playing for nothing but pride in the last weeks of a disappointing drive, and finishing above high-flying minnows Girona is imperative to attain even a modicum of that.

Real Madrid sealed their title victory at a canter after Barcelona were beaten 4-2 by Girona little over just a week ago.

Barca’s Yamal opened the scoring following 40 minutes and Raphinha added a late penalty to seal the victory. Barca coach Xavi said that the La Real are a great team and it is very significant win for them, they had a good game in general.
