The Basque team Real Sociedad continues to lead the Spanish league for a week longer. Thanks to Captain Mikel Oyarzabal. The international never misses from the penalty spot.
Real and Barcelona have missed their start somewhat in La Liga this season and so Sociedad and Villarreal were allowed to compete for the leading place in Spain tonight.
The top match ended 1-1 after 2 penalty goals. Moreno opened from the spot for Villarreal, then Oyarzabal equalized with an eleven meter.
The 23-year-old captain of Sociedad is a phenomenon. The top scorer in Spain – who recently also humiliated Germany with the national team – scored his 50th goal in the top division.
Oyarzabal never misses from the dot. 14 times he took one, 14 times he made one.
Sociedad leads the ranking with 24 points from 11 matches. Atletico follows on 1 point, but still has 2 matches too good.
Late raid for Januzaj
Adnan Januzaj came in tonight in the final quarter. The defenders of Villarreal kept a close eye on him so that he could not change the score. For Sociedad this ended a series of 6 victories in a row.
