Real Sociedad miss chance to go clear at top of La Liga

Real Sociedad passed up the chance to go clear at the top of La Liga after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Eibar on Sunday.

The result means that Imanol Alguacil's side have failed to capitalise on Atletico Madrid's derby defeat to Real Madrid a day earlier.

The home side took the lead in the 20th minute with a thumping strike from Ander Barrenetxea in off the crossbar, but Eibar equalised with a scrappy goal from striker Sergi Enrich in the 65th.

Sociedad thought they had snatched a winner when Igor Zubeldia bundled the ball into the net, but a VAR review ruled the effort out for offside, while Enrich missed a glorious chance to grab all three points for Eibar moments later.

Sociedad climbed back to the top of the table on 26 points after 13 games, level with second-placed Atletico Madrid who have two games in hand.
