Sociedad retake top spot despite Eibar draw

Ander Barrenetxea

Real Sociedad moved back to the top of La Liga on Sunday despite only managing a 1-1 home draw with Eibar in San Sebastian.

The Basque club are level with Atletico Madrid on 26 points after the capital club fell to a 2-0 defeat to local rivals Real Madrid on Saturday evening.

Ander Barrenetxea gave the hosts the lead with a thumping strike in the 20th minute, but Sergi Enrich turned home with 25 minutes remaining to send his team seventh on 15 points.

Igor Zubeldia’s 80th-minute tap-in was ruled out by VAR for an extremely tight offside.
