Real Sociedad are now level with fourth placed Atlético after a 1-0 victory over Celta in the last match of the weekend. With important cup ties either side of this fixture, Berizzo put out a much changed line up, but even so Rulli had to be at his best to keep out Sisto early on. Sergio Alvarez had to save from Carlos Vela after the restart though, and with twenty minutes to go Juanmi headed what was to prove the only goal from a Canales centre following a short corner. The Galicians came close to saving a point however when Guidetti’s back-heel from a Planas centre went just wide of the post.
