- The little striker wriggled far from 3 adversaries on the midway line and was then in the correct place to cut home after Sociedad had made a wreck of managing Markel Susaeta’s conservative cross.
- It would be Real Sociedad who might guarantee derby gloating rights, however, as they exploited two defeding missteps in the 2nd half to seal the win.
Huge win for Real Sociedad!!!

- Sangalli made it 2-1 in the 47th moment with a clinical get done with following great work by Igor Zubeldia, who captured a free go before charging forward and crossing for his partner.
- At that point, with 16 minutes to go, Sociedad were granted a 2nd penalty when Jon Bautista got to Alvarez Yeray’s under-cooked back go in front of Unai Simon before being sent flying by the Athletic goalkeeper.
Mikel Oyarzabal – I’m a huge fan of this player. His second penalty puts Real Sociedad 3-1 up against Basque rivals Athletic at San Mames.
