Luis Enrique's team got victory number 47 of the season on Saturday — they've played in 55 matches in all competitions. It ties the record of 47 victories achieved in 2011/12 season. That year they played 64 games, so this record is likely to be broken, and soon.

Saturday's win over the Basque side was also their 32nd with a clean sheet, thus, equalling the Club record of 32 shutouts, also reached in the 2011/12 season.

In the last seven games Barça have outscored their opponents 25–0. Perhaps most impressively, these numbers have been achieved in the months of April and May in high-pressure matches towards the end of the year with titles in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League at stake.

The shutout streak is even better than what they did to open the season, when they outscored opponents 18–0 in the first seven games.

Against Real Sociedad, Claudio Bravo had another clean sheet, the seventh consecutive game in which the Chilean goalkeeper and Ter Stegen went all 90 minutes without conceding.

Neymar opened the scoring on a header — his 50th goal in official games with FC Barcelona.

Pedro scored the second goal of the game with a spectacular bicycle kick in the area. He played eight minutes and had nine touches, scoring on his only shot on goal.

Gerard Piqué had a game-high 66 completed passes, including 18 to Dani Alves and 16 to Marc Bartra.
