Real Sociedad climb four points clear of the drop zone after they beat local rivals Eibar 2-1 in this Sunday’s mid-day game. The visitors struck first though, Rulli having to tip an effort from Keko for a corner, and Borja Bastón getting on the end of a Sergi Enrich cross to give his side the lead in only the fourth minute. Some five minutes later however Agirretxe made it all square after Pantic could only clear a Canales centre to him, and the on-form striker went close a couple of times after that. Both teams felt they should have had penalties for fouls on Agirretxe and Borja after the interval, and Riesgo had to keep out a couple of long shots from Canales. The game appeared to be heading for a draw though until the final minute, when Canales headed on a lofted pass from Ganero, and Bruma turned the ball across for Agirretxe to slide home the winner.
