Philippe Coutinho scored the winner for Barcelona against Real Sociedad with a stunning long-range strike - and you can watch the brilliant goal above!

Former Liverpool forward Coutinho, scorer of a hat-trick a week ago, netted the only goal on a night which belonged to Andres Iniesta, who bowed out at Barca after 22 years at the club.

Barca took the lead 10 minutes into the second half with a fine strike from Coutinho. The Brazilian drove through the left channel, cut back on to his right foot, wrong-footing two defenders before curling the ball in off the far post.

It proved to be the only goal of the game as Barca sent Iniesta out on a high.

The Spain playmaker was substituted after 81 minutes and received a rapturous reception as he bade farewell to the stage he has graced for so long and so successfully.

He took his time to depart, embracing team-mates and soaking in the adoration. With tears in his eyes, the man who was given a contract for life just last October, concluded his illustrious spell as a Barca player.

The 34-year-old will leave the club this summer 22 years after joining their academy, having won 32 major honours including four Champions League titles and nine La Liga titles.
