Real Madrid has defeated Real Sociedad in a La Liga match played at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday. Madrid won the match by a close margin of 4-3. This was the 11th victory for Madrid in the ongoing La Liga. Madrid is currently at no. 3 in the points table with 36 points in 18 matches.
Real Madrid was off to a brilliant start in the match and took the lead in the second minute with the goal of Karim Benzema. Sami Khedira set up the goal with a great pass to Benzema just outside the penalty area. Benzema turned and smashed the ball into the left hand corner of the net.
But, Madrid didn’t manage to maintain the lead for a long time. The scores were equalized just after a few minutes. Sociedad earned a penalty in the ninth minute and Xabi Prieto made full use of that opportunity. He sent the ball into the right hand corner of the net and brought his team back into the match. The goal keeper of Madrid, Iker Casillas, was completely deceived by that shot. He dived in the wrong direction.
Real Madrid got ahead again in the 35th minute with the goal of Sami Khedira. Who capitalized on the pass of Ricardo Carvalho and played a brilliant back heeled shot to send the ball into the net. But, again, Madrid lost the advantage soon. Prieto found the net for the second time in the match in the 40th minute and the scores got equalized.
The Real Madrid team started the second half very aggressively. Cristiano Ronaldo scored a couple of goals just in the space of two minutes and put the Sociedad team under a lot of pressure. However, Prieto completed his hat trick in the 76th minute and made the match quite interesting, but, eventually, he wasn’t able to prevent the defeat of his team. In the remaining time, the Madrid players played quite sensibly and didn’t give any chance to their opponent.
