0-1. 02. Luiz Alberto. Glancing header after De Pedro corner from right.

Real Sociedad rise above Mallorca to eighteenth on goal average after the San Sebastian side defeated Tenerife 0-1. Luiz Alberto headed the only goal in the second minute from De Pedro's corner in the second minute, but only Tenerife keeper Sergio Aragoneses and the woodwork kept them from increasing their lead before half time, with Jankauskas heading against the bar and the keeper saving a string of shots from the Real forwards.

However the introduction of young midfielder Acorán at half time put the island team back in the game, and this time it was the visitors' keeper Alberto who saved the day stopping a penalty by Xisco after a Real Sociedad defender handled in the area. After the match Tenerife manager Pepe Mel criticised the young striker for taking the kick when Hugo Morales had been designated as the penalty taker. The result leaves Mel under pressure with his team now only two points above their opponents.
