Sergio Busquets put Barcelona ahead at the Camp Nou just before half-time and Sociedad had Íñigo Martínez sent off for dissent soon after.

And the 10 men did not help themselves after the interval as the Catalans doubled their advantage in comedy fashion.

After collecting Cesc Fàbregas' fine through-ball, Alexis Sánchez hit the post when on-on-one with Zubikarai with the rebound falling to what seemed the relative safety of Gorka Elustondo.

Disaster and hilarity then ensued, though, when, under no pressure whatsoever, Elustondo panicked and blasted his attempted clearance at goalkeeper Zubikarai.

The helpless goalkeeper could do nothing as the ball finally ping-ponged into the net.
