GIF: Real Sociedad player figures out how to stop Lionel Messi

If at first you don’t succeed… drag your opponent to the ground.

BARCELONA HAVE ONE foot in the Copa Del Rey final after a 2-0 first leg win over Real Sociedad last night.

As well as a comedy own goal from Sociedad goalkeeper Eñaut Zubikarai, the game also produced a moment of madness when Jon Gaztañaga resorted to ‘rugby tackling’ Lionel Messi after he had skipped past two players.

You won’t be shocked to learn he picked up a yellow card for his troubles.
