    And we'll leave that there.

    Join me again later for Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid. Kick-off is at 19:45 BST.


    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    Barcelona scrape through. They maintain their 100% start to the season with a tight win.

    Real Sociedad will rue the missed chances before Barca's two goals in three minutes.

  3. Post update

    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    The ball loops into Marc-Andre ter Stegen's hands. That would be that.

  4. Post update

    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    Arturo Vidal is furious. He would have had a sitter to finish the game off had Luis Suarez squared the ball but the striker was greedy and went himself. Suarez's shot was blocked.

    Real Sociedad come forward for one final attack...

  5. Post update

    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    Barca have halted Real Sociedad's momentum. They're keeping the ball and maintaining their shape.


    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    Gerard Pique smashes the ball up the field.

    Three minutes are added on.

  7. Post update

    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    Jordi Alba takes a seat in the penalty area to try and give his side a breather.

    We're into the final minute of normal time.

  8. Post update

    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    The noise levels lift even further at this new Real Sociedad stadium. I'd almost go as far to say Barcelona are hanging on.

  9. CLOSE!

    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    The home fans have found their voice again. They're roaring Real Sociedad on...

    Almost! Great chance. Mikel Merino chips a lovely ball in to forward Juanmi who tries to float a header over the oncoming Ter Stegen.

    He gets it over the 'keeper but the ball floats inches wide.

  10. CLOSE!

    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    This isn't done yet! Marc-Andre ter Stegen makes another big save but the offside flag was up away.

    Six minutes left.


    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    We're into the final 10. One thing is for certain is there has been no opportunity for Ernesto Valverde to rest some of his stars with the Champions League in mind.

    Barcelona play PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday.

    Asier Illarramendi and Ruben Pardo are substituted for Real. Luca Sangalli and former Newcastle midfielder Mikel Merino come on.

  12. Post update

    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    See ya.

    Sensational turn from Philippe Coutinho to win a free-kick. Barcelona have been far, far better since he came on a half-time.

    Lionel Messi fires over from range shortly after. That could have wrapped it up.


    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    Barcelona now make a change. Arturo Vidal is on for goalscorer Ousmane Dembele.

    A midfielder for a striker. Barca shutting up shop?


    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    Jon Bautista comes on for David Zurutuza for the hosts. 15 minutes left.

  15. Post update

    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    It's all Barca now. Real Sociedad can't deal with any high balls. Theo Hernandez tries to volley a clearance away but ends up setting Luis Suarez up for an overhead kick after getting it all wrong.

    Suarez's effort is decent but goes narrowly wide.

    Asier Illarramendi meanwhile is getting very close to a second yellow.

  16. Post update

    Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    How big a miss were those three Real Sociedad chances just before Barcelona's first goal? You've got to be backing Barca from here. Real should have killed it off.

    Sociedad 'keeper Geronimo Rulli will not be happy with his efforts from both goals either.

  17. GOAL - Real Sociedad 1-2 Barcelona

    Ousmane Dembele

    Two goals in three minutes. Barca have turned it around! It's another corner which is poorly defended by the hosts. The loose ball drops to French forward Ousmane Dembele and he converts with the help of a deflection.


    Real Sociedad 1-1 Barcelona

    Almost most typical Philippe Coutinho goal. He curls one from the edge of the box but it is brilliantly saved by Gerónimo Rulli.


  19. GOAL - Real Sociedad 1-1 Barcelona

    Luis Suarez

    But if you don't take your chances...

    Real Sociedad should be out of sight but Luis Suarez gets the champions back level. It's scrappy, not classic Barca at all. Gerard Pique heads down a corner and the Uruguayan scrambles the ball in.

  20. Post update

    Real Sociedad 1-0 Barcelona

    It's all happening. A second fine save from Ter Stegen in a couple of minutes.
