Real Sociedad beat reigning champions Barcelona 1-0 at the Anoeta stadium in what was undoubtedly the upset of the week.
There were however, a few bright points as far as Barca were concerned. Turkish international Arda Turan started and his passing was as impressive as ever in fact he had a 96 percent accuracy – the highest on the team.

Turan is now officially the most accurate passer on the Barcelona team with a 92 percent accuracy.
The bearded winger has adapted to Barca’s passing style remarkably fast but it did not count for much as his side were unable to prevent losing for the second week running.
Despite the defeat Barca are still three points ahead of second placed Atletico Madrid who beat Espanyol 3-1 today.
