Real Sociedad held on to fourth spot, above Valencia on head-to-head goal difference, after coming back from a goal down to beat Sevilla 1-2. Rakitic scored at both ends in the first quarter of an hour, the Croatian midfielder poking a shot past Bravo in the tenth minute after Kondogbia laid a corner back to him, but then heading Illarramendi's wide free kick back in to his own net. Agirretxe got on the end of a Carlos Martínez cross to volley a shot past Beto some eight minutes later though, and the local keeper did well to save from Carlos Vela a few minutes after that. Unai Emery's side were looking for points themselves though to keep up their push for the European spots, and only some first class stops by Bravo prevented Rakitic, Negredo and Navas from equalising before the break. Medel thought himself hard done by to be pulled up for a non-existent offside when free on goal in the second half, an incident which cost Reyes a red card for protesting as he was warming up on the touchline. But in the end the Andalusians could have lost by a bigger scoreline, Beto having to keep out Vela and Griezmann near the end.
