VAR chalked off great goal involving Messi, Fati and Alba

Barcelona beat Real Sociedad 1-0, but it could have been two had the VAR not taken away a goal in the 96th minute. It was offside by centimetres. Leo Messi started the move, Ansu Fati was also involved and Jordi Alba finished it.

The last play of the match between Barcelona and Real Sociedad was a spectacular goal involving Leo Messi, Ansu Fati, Jordi Alba and the VAR. The VAR had the biggest impact though as it disallowed the goal which had been fantastic. 

It started with Setien's men penned back in their own area to stop Real Sociedad equalising. Leo Messi won the ball with his head in defence and started the counter. 

The Argentine passed the ball to himself and fed Ansu Fati. Fati went into the box, cut past another defender who came to help out and so he passed to Jordi Alba who fired home. 

A great goal which killed off the match which had been far from easy for the Catalan. However, the VAR buzzed in and disallowed the goal because Fati was offside from Messi's pass. 

Therefore, the referee, Martinez Munuera, disallowed the goal. He then blew for full time shortly afterwards and Barca went away 1-0 winners courtesy of Messi's penalty.
