Seville beat Real Sociedad with a thumping 2-1 victory on Sunday at the Reale Arena. Real arrived with the intention of increasing their league score following a disappointing 2-2 draw with Valencia in their previous game. Seville were hoping to increase their winning streak after back-to-back victories against Celta Vigo and Atletico Madrid. As the table looks today, Real and Seville currently occupy 5th and 4th spots in the league, with 47 points and 64 points respectively after 33 matches.
Real started strongly in the first half, with an early goal from Carlos Fernandez in the 5th minute. However, the good fortune didn't last for long. An equalizer from Fernando at the 22 minute mark brought Seville level. However they weren't finished yet and Youssef En-Nesyri made it 2-1 at the 24 minute mark, finishing the first half 1-2. Both teams unable to deliver anything further, the score remained at 2-1 at full time.
