La Liga-leaders Real Sociedad is hosting Athletic Bilbao in the Basque derby. Sociedad is going in to the derby with a win over Celta Vigo, with youngster Alexander Isak scoring his second goal of the season. Athletic Bilbao meanwhile, managed to get a 1-1 draw against Espanyol. Sociedad, who surprisingly is top of table, are consider as favourites, but anything can happen on derby day.
Final whistle, 1–1
The Derby reaches its end. And what an ending. Remiro will be thinking about that equalizing freekick for a while. He should definitely have saved that, and now Sociedad drops two points. Disappointing for the hosts, who yet remain unbeaten at home, but lots of happy faces amongst the red and white part of the Basque Country.
Now Sociedad wants to find a winner. Is there enough time?
Absolute scenes in the away end as it’s 1–1. Munain equalizes with a freekick. And he can thank Remiro. The goalkeeper should have saved that.
Five minutes will be added.
Both teams are making substitutions. Lobete is replacing Isak while Garcia part ways for Numez.
85′ Red card!
Inigo Martinez is sent off after a second yellow. The hand of former Sociedad-defender hits Isak’s face and the referee don’t hesitate to show him the yellow card. 11 against 10 then.
Athletic Club tries to put some pressure on the hosts. They are keeping possession around Sociedad’s box. Not many clear chances though.
10 minutes to go. Will be interesting to see if the visitors can find an equalizer here..
Another booking for Sociedad as Merino fouls Garcia. Could have been a red to be fair. Merino didn’t even try to get the ball ball as he hit the legs of Garcia.
Great counter attack from Real Sociedad as Silva plays Isak out wide, but he loses space and alternatives. Great defensive work from the visitors.
