Real Sociedad’s Carlos Vela scored the first La Liga goal of the season with a neat chip over the Getafe ‘keeper.

Real Sociedad, Athletic Bilbao and Valencia began their La Liga campaigns with wins on Saturday.

Jagoba Arrasate’s Real Sociedad ran out comfortable winners over Getafe, as Carlos Vela scored the first La Liga goal of the season just before half-time and Seferovic scored a goal on debut after 70 minutes of play.

Athletic Bilbao ran out 2-1 winners over Real Valladolid, with Markel Susaeta breaking the deadlock on 28 minutes before Patrick Ebert levelled for the home side. Iker Muniain scored the winner for Bilbao in the 50th minute.

Ricardo Costa’s 64th minute tap-in gave Valencia a win over Malaga. The Portuguese pounced on an error by Malaga keeper Willy Caballero to hand his team the win in a tightly contested match where neither team took much initiative.
