Sociedad unable to capitalise on Atletico slip

con 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.
