Barcelona moved two points clear at the top of La Liga Saturday after riding their luck to come from behind and win 2-1 at Real Sociedad while Real Madrid could only draw 1-1 in a highly entertaining game at Athletic Bilbao.The fightback follows Barca's 4-2 win at Anoeta last January and makes them the only team to still have a perfect record in Spain's top flight, where they lead the standings with 12 points, two clear of Real.Iker Muniain gave Athletic a deserved lead in the 32nd minute in Bilbao by bundling the ball home after Real failed to get back in time to defend a counter attack.Real were twice denied by Athletic's impressive 21-year-old goalkeeper Unai Simon in the first half but finally beat the youngster when Isco nodded home a cross from Gareth Bale in the 63rd minute as Real improved after bringing on midfield anchor Casemiro at the start of the second half.
