Barca suffer first loss of La Liga season

An injury-time strike from substitute Imanol Agirretxe condemned 10-man Barcelona to a 3-2 defeat at Real Sociedad on Saturday, their first of a record-breaking La Liga season.

Lionel Messi scored in a 10th consecutive game for a landmark second time, putting Barca ahead after six minutes with Pedro Rodriguez doubling the lead.

But Chory Castro pulled a goal back before the break and then got his second after 63 minutes.  With Gerard Pique off the field after receiving a red card, Agirretxe got the winner in the 91st minute.

“I have to congratulate Real Sociedad and I have no complaints about my players. We hit the post twice in the first half and had two other chances. It becomes more complicated for us and they made it 2-1,” said Barca coach Tito Vilanova. Valencia host Real Madrid later on Sunday.
