Real Madrid went to the top of La Liga thanks to a hard-fought victory at Real Sociedad. Sergio Ramos’ penalty after the lively Vinicius Jr was fouled gave the visitors the lead.
Karim Benzema doubled their advantage before Mikel Merino’s strike set up a tense finale. There was controversy when substitute Adnan Januzaj thought he had made it 1-1 with a strike from outside the area but it was ruled out for a Merino offside.
Merino did not get a touch but the officials deemed he was blocking goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois’ view, so interfering with play.
