Real Madrid suffered a surprise defeat by Real Sociedad as the visitors earned
their first victory at the Bernabeu in La Liga for 15 years.
Jose fired Sociedad in front from the penalty spot in the third minute after
Mikel Merino was fouled by Real Madrid’s Casemiro. Things then got more
difficult for Real Madrid when Lucas Vazquez was sent off with half an hour
remaining. Sociedad made the extra man count when Ruben Pardo headed in a late
second. The defeat leaves Real Madrid one point and one place outside the
Champions League qualification spots in fifth, while Sociedad move up to 11th
after ending a four-match losing streak in the league.
