BARCELONA: Barcelona reclaimed second place in LaLiga with a 2-0 home win over Real Sociedad on Monday courtesy of a Lamine Yamal first-half strike and a late Raphinha penalty.

Xavi Hernandez’s side leapfrogged Girona to move on to 76 points, one clear of their Catalan rivals who dropped points in Friday’s 2-2 draw at Alaves.

Real Madrid have already secured the league title, sitting on 90 points with three games left.

Yamal put Barcelona ahead in the 40th minute when he coolly slotted home from Ilkay Gundogan’s pass after a quick breakaway for his fifth LaLiga goal this season.

Raphinha’s penalty in stoppage time sealed victory for the hosts after a VAR review for handball, leaving the Basque side in seventh place with 54 points, one behind Real Betis in the last Europa League spot.
