Sergino Dest played his best game for Barcelona after he netted twice in the rout of hosts Real Sociedad in their league game at the weekend. The USA international right-back is in his debut season at Spanish team Barcelona and he was responsible for two goals in the 6-1 away win over the Basque club on Sunday night. The USA player had not scored for Barcelona until the Real Sociedad game at the San Sebastian in Anoeta. He was at his rampaging best on the right side of the Barcelona attack as the Real Sociedad defenders had no answers tohim. The USA player added a second and a third goal for the visitors after the opening goal of the match from Frenchman Antoine Griezmann on 37 minutes. USA international Dest scored his first and Barcelona’s second two minutes before the break. Dest completed his brace for the third Barcelona goal on 53 minutes before star player Lionel Messi scored the first of his own brace three minutes later to edge the Catalans 4-0 ahead.
Frenchman Ousmane Dembele scored the fifth Barcelona goal on 71 minutes before Real Sociedad substitute Ander Barrenetxea scored a consolation goal for his team on 77 minutes. Messi completed the scoring just before the final whistle as Barcelona proved once again that they are the form team in the Spanish La Liga. They have now won 12 and drawn just one of their last 13 league games to move within four points of league leaders Atletico Madrid in the race for the league title. Barcelona have now scored ten goals in the last two games. Barcelona have just ten matches to make up that point deficit at the expense of Atletico Madrid.
