A 10-year old curse was finally been broken on Thursday, as Barcelona beat Real Sociedad 1-0 in the the Copa Del Rey quarter-final first leg.

Barcelona were handed a daunting draw for the quarter-finals as the Blaugrana were drawn against Real Sociedad, with the club’s recent record at the Anoeta Stadium being nothing short of abysmal.

With very few giving them much of a chance to win the first leg, Barcelona set about tackling the big challenge. Luis Enrique set his side up efficiently as Barcelona dominated possession, and deprived Real Sociedad of chances at their goal while creating very few themselves.

However, they needed just one goal from one decisive chance, and Neymar did just that as he won and scored a penalty to hand Barcelona a 1-0 win, establish an important one-goal lead, getting one step closer to defending their title and finally breaking the Anoeta curse.
