The first of the new Friday night games ended in a 0-0 draw between Real Sociedad and Osasuna, a result which favoured the visitors more than the home team. The game got off to a lively start, with Armenteros testing Bravo right from the kick-off, and Griezmann responding with a shot just wide. After that though it turned in to the usual brusque Basque derby with the defences not giving anything away, although a tough referee stopped things getting out of hand with six yellow cards in the first half. Both keepers had little to do, Andrés making one key save from a Carlos Vela header early on and Bravo keeping an eye on a looping back header from his own defender which bounced off his own crossbar. Ifrán was the liveliest of the forwards after the break, although he was unable to hit the target on a couple of occasions, and Bravo had to make a couple of late saves from Lamah and Arribas. A fair result though, and the Osasuna fans celebrated at the end as if they had won the league!
