Real Sociedad misses the podium after draw against Valencia in La Liga

Real Sociedad missed the mark. In the superb atmosphere of the Anoeta stadium in San Sebastian, the Basques conceded a draw against Valencia during a very rhythmic match (1-1). The locals started the game on foot by opening the scoring in the first minutes.

Illaramendi took advantage of a slip from Correia in his camp to cross hard. Guillamon, trying to ward off the danger, tackled and pushed the ball into his own net, confirming the Basques’ good start to the game (10th). But a few minutes later, Elustondo was expelled for a sole on the ankle of a very restless Lino (17th).

It is also this same Lino who allowed Valencia to equalize (25th). Alone at the entrance to the surface, the winger adjusted a shot that lodged in the opposite side netting. Reduced to ten, the players of Real Sociedad pushed to equalize (27th, 35th, 43rd) and even touched the bar by Sorloth (48th).

But struggling physically, they left the ball to the Valencians (80% possession in the second half) who found no solution against the united defense of Sociedad, carried by an excellent Le Normand.

No winner therefore, and the two teams do not advance in the standings. Real Sociedad remains 6th and misses the opportunity to overtake Atlético de Madrid for a place on the podium. Valencia remains bogged down in a mediocre 11th place.
