Player ratings: Pique on form as Barcelona held at Real Sociedad

The defender impressed at the back ahead of Wednesday's Clasico

The player ratings from Barcelona's 2-2 draw away at Real Sociedad on Saturday: 

Ter Stegen (5) 

Real Sociedad didn't have an excessive amount of shots on goal but the German looked uncomfortable. For the second goal, he palmed the ball straight to Isak. 

Sergi Roberto (5) 

The home side targeted his wing which prevented him contributing further forward. Lacked support at times. 

Pique (8)

A very strong performance and could have scored, too. Had a header cleared off the line and wasn't awarded a penalty when pulled down in the box in stoppage time. Good in defence, too. 

Lenglet (6) 

Did what he had to and kept his focus for the whole game. 

Alba (5) 

Making his first appearance following an injury, he did OK but played within himself. The good news is he came through the game and that will benefit him going into the Clasico. 

Busquets (4) 

Wanted to press high but could find his space and left a lot for La Real behind him. Gave the penalty away, too, although he did help set up the second goal. 

Rakitic (4) 

The promising performances since he returned to the team were not on show here. Couldn't keep up with La Real's rhythm and left Monreal for the second goal. 

De Jong (6) 

The best of the midfield three, trying to create and move the team up the pitch. Strong physically but lacked partners to build play. 

Messi (6) 

Appeared sporadically but whenever he did you got the sense of danger. Set up the second goal for Suarez. 

Suarez (7) 

Worked hard and was intense, while also being involved in the key moments. Set up the first goal and scored the second. 

Griezmann (6) 

Had the tough task of defending with Alba as well as being expected to attack. Scored the first goal with a great finish against his former side. 

Substitutes 

Aleña (5), Semedo (5), Vidal (5)
