La Liga's sixth and seventh placed sides Real Sociedad and Betis cancelled each other out in a thrilling 3-3 draw on Sunday evening. The two teams showed though why they are riding high this season, with the lead changing hands twice before the game ended all square. The locals had the better chances early on, Adrián having to tip over a shot from Carlos Vela, Griezmann having a strike ruled out for a more than dubious offside, and Agirretxe heading against the post. However Molina opened the scoring for the visitors against the run of play after Joel Campbell put him through, and four minutes after the restart Pabón made it two after running on to Beñat's long pass to score from a wide angle. Within twelve minutes though Real scored three times to turn the scoreline around, Carlos Vela drilling home the first after Agirretxe headed across a high ball. Iñigo Martínez levelled the scores five minutes later, steering a header past Adrián from Vela's cross, and Xabi Prieto got the third from the penalty spot after Angel blocked the ball with his upper arm inside the area. Just four minutes after that though Pabón ran on to Rubén Castro's return pass to turn a shot past Bravo, and although Agirretxe, Griezmann, De la Bella and Vela all went close later on, Adrián and his defence held fast for a well-earned point.
