A swede, a Norwegian and a dane walked into ...
It sounds like the start of a bad joke, but it was what happened at the Camp Nou on Saturday evening.
the Guests Real Sociedad had Norwegian Martin Ødegaard and Swedish Alexander Isaac, while Martin Braithwaite for the first time since his chokskifte from Leganés started for FC Barcelona.
It was also the first time in over 25 years, that a dane was part of the Barça starting lineup.
Vestjyden had in relation to last weekend's El Clásico sent Vidal off of the bench and was part of a fronttrio with Griezmann and Messi.
Braithwaite played in the left side, and that it was a good idea to give him a chance from the start, got coach Quique Setién seen after only ten minutes of play.
Messi played Braithwaite in depth, and after a single move fired he resolutely of with venstrebenet. Remiro had just moved his legs quickly enough and prevented an early Barcelona-keeping.
With its speed challenged Braithwaite Sociedad defence, and after a quarter of an hour he got a new opportunity.
Again it was Messi the depositor, but this time it was gunpowder in the cannon, and Remiro had no problems with the Danish landsholdsangribers completion.

FC Barcelona had a hard time to create the completely open possibilities, and Messi was missing for once, the sharpness, when after a half hour of play got the chance close to the goal.
Remiro was able to save and the ensuing corner kick headede Braithwaite of objectives.
