Despite his father being a Real Madrid legend, Cristiano Ronaldo's son chose to celebrate wearing a Barcelona jersey.
Barcelona started the game brightly and were looking for the first goal of the game but it was the away side that shocked them with the opening goal. Alexander Sorloth produces a great pass that finds Mikel Merino inside the penalty area, who takes advantage of the situation to rifle a low shot into the back of the net.
The league winners went into the halftime break with a one-goal deficit and were beating themselves for not taking their chances.
The home side came into the second half and still struggled to get past Real Sociedad defence. As the second half went on, the away side doubled their lead when a great pass found Alexander Sorloth in acres of space after a fine counterattack. He brings the ball under control before firing it past the helpless keeper from close range.
