SOCIEDAD GRIND OUT A DRAW
Despite the best attempts of Carlos Vela, Real Sociedad could only draw against Osasuna. Both teams stretched their unbeaten run in the domestic campaign to 6 matches, although both teams will be unhappy that they could not win the match.
Real Sociedad would have been happier after two given that they could take at least one point away from the match, as it was Osasuna who completely dominated the match from start to finish. Carlos Vela only had a few chances to touch the ball, let alone score, as it was largely a game of tight defences and tactics.
Andres Fernandes was crucial for the Osasuna team, as he made a number of crucial saves to deny Carlos Vela and other Real Sociedad players during the match. Diego Ifran looked to have scored the first goal that would have opened the match after just 3 min, but Andres Fernandes produced a fantastic save from the volley to keep the game level.
Carlos Vela once again proved that he is one of the best strikers within the Real Sociedad squad by going extremely close to opening the scoring. He struck the post with great effort.
Osasuna came into the match on a fine run of form that has seen the club rise to fifth position in the La Liga, which also meant that the best football betting online odds of winning was just under evens!
Real Sociedad are struggling down in the bottom of the table. This one point might have looked like two points dropped at home, but in fairness, Real Sociedad would be more than happy to have secured at least one point, which takes them away from the relegation zone.
