Barcelona won their first La Liga match of the season 4-1 over Real Sociedad on Sunday.
The first half was wild. Barça demonstrated their superiority in the final period and won on the road, thanks to Ansu Fati's cameo.
In first half, Xavi Hernández sent Barça out in a 3-2-4-1 shape to suffocate Sociedad and attack.
Both teams had nonstop, up-and-down action with numerous counterattacks and significant chances.
Halftime brought a goal for each team and the promise of more excitement in the third.
The second half slowed down as Sociedad's pushing faded and Barça took better care of the ball and prevented counterattacks.
Barça slowly found more space with their passing and movement. Ansu Fati assisted the second goal with a backheel pass.
Ansu collected a pass from Pedri and placed it perfectly into the path of Lewandowski, who scored his second goal of the evening.
Xavi switched to a 4-3-3 in the final 15 minutes to make his team more organized at the back.
The Catalans kept pushing, aiming for the game-clinching fourth goal, which came when Lewandowski's pass was diverted to Ansu Fati.
The first half was as challenging, but squad depth, Xavi's courage, and outstanding game management made the difference in the second.
