Barcelona's Anoeta hoodoo continued on Sunday as a 1-1 LaLiga stalemate with Real Sociedad saw their nine-year winless run in San Sebastián continue.
Last success at Real Sociedad came in 2007
The Spanish champions went into the league match-up with Eusebio Sacristán's men having last tasted victory away to 'La Real' back in May 2007.
Indeed, Los Azulgranas had lost their past four top-flight visits to the stadium, an unwanted streak that began with a 3-2 reverse in January 2013.
On this occasion, Barça avoided defeat - but needed a Leo Messi equaliser to salvage a draw as they ended week 13 six points behind leaders Real Madrid.
No wins in eight at Anoeta
Since claiming a 2-0 win under Frank Rijkaard, the Catalans have now failed to beat Real Sociedad in eight meetings in all competitions in the Basque Country.
That negative sequence - which has featured seven LaLiga clashes and one in the Copa del Rey - has witnessed three draws and five losses.
