Real Madrid go top of LaLiga with a victory over Real Sociedad

Real Madrid took control of the Spanish title race by beating Real Sociedad 2-1 away to move top of LaLiga above Barcelona after a second-half filled with controversy.

Sergio Ramos cooly scored a second half penalty by sending Alex Remiro the wrong way

Real Madrid Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, broke the deadlock in the 50th minute by converting a penalty. There had been contact between Vinicius and defender Diego Llorente but the decision to give Zinedine Zidane’s team the crucial opening penalty looked generous in Madrid’s favour.

Sociedad thought they had equalised with a strike from Adnan Januzaj from outside the box but the goal was ruled out after a VAR review showed Mikel Merino obstructing the view of keeper Thibaut Courtois without touching the ball.

Their sense of injustice deepened a minute later when Karim Benzema doubled Madrid’s lead in the 71st minute after controlling the ball with the top of his arm although Merino ensured an exciting finish by lashing in off the crossbar in the 83rd minute.
