MADRID. — Barcelona rode their luck to come from behind and win 2-1 at Real Sociedad on Saturday, continuing to banish their awful record in San Sebastian and maintaining their perfect start to the Spanish La Liga season.
The champions fell behind following a thumping shot from Aritz Elustondo in the 12th minute from a set piece.
They also survived a mini onslaught from the home side in the second half before Luis Suarez levelled in the 63rd with a scrappy goal and Ousmane Dembele gave them a barely deserved lead three minutes later.
The fightback follows Barca’s 4-2 win at Real Sociedad in January. They recorded a second straight victory at Anoeta after an 11-year barren spell without a league win there.
