Later in the evening Real Sociedad won 3-0 against Vardar to stay second behind Zenit. Juanmi had a strike disallowed for offside before he headed the opener from a Canales corner with half an hour on the clock. Willian José and Juanmi both missed chances later on in the first half, and with twenty minutes to go De la Bella volleyed in the second from Gorosabel’s centre. Bautista got the third a few minutes later from a quickly taken Canales free kick, and Janujaz could have added to the lead after that.
