Real Madrid and Real Sociedad neutralize each other to the delight of Barça


Last meeting of the day counting for the 19th day of La Liga with an enticing poster between Real Madrid and Real Sociedad at the Santiago-Bernabéu, the lair of the Casa Blanca. Respectively 2nd and 3rd in the Spanish championship, the two teams had to achieve a result so as not to let FC Barcelona slip away, winner of Girona (1-0) this Saturday, alone in the lead. At the start of the game, Carlo Ancelotti’s players held the ball and managed to settle in the opposing camp despite the good high pressing of the Basques.

After a quarter of an hour, the meeting began to get carried away on a strike from Vinicius which passed close to the post of Alejandro Remiro (14th). A few minutes later, following a missed raise from Toni Kroos, Asier Illarramendi struck hard from inside the Real Madrid box but his shot went past the cages of a beaten Thibaut Courtois (17th). The Real Sociedad goalkeeper then made several saves against Federico Valverde (32nd), Karim Benzema (35th) to keep his goal clean. Just before the break, Daniel Ceballos tried his hand after a scramble, without success (45th), then Vinicius tried a shot from afar well stopped by the Basque goalkeeper.

FC Barcelona rubs its hands

The people of Madrid, superior to their opponents, lacked accuracy in the last gesture against a solid and well-grouped Basque team despite a Vinicius of the big nights. Returning from the locker room, the Brazilian appeared once again in front of Alejandro Remiro but his shot was repelled by the Real Sociedad goalkeeper (49th). On the hour mark, Takefusa Kubo sent a fine low shot towards the opposite side netting but Thibaut Courtois quickly folded to catch the shot from the Japanese international (61st).

While the goalkeepers proved intractable tonight, whether it was Thibaut Courtois against Robert Navarro (70th) or Alejandro Remiro against Vinicius (71st), the 22 players were heading for a goalless draw. In the standings, this result does not suit either team. The two formations keep the same places but especially lose ground on the leader of La Liga, FC Barcelona. Real are 5 points behind their rival now. In the middle of the week, Carlo Ancelotti’s players will face Valencia for a late match on the 17th day of the Spanish championship.
