Twitter erupts as Real Madrid fall behind in La Liga title race after 0-0 Sociedad draw

Real Madrid were unable to beat Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday, January 29, as the La Liga fixture ended goalless.

The first half of the game was action-packed and exciting, with both teams creating chances and demonstrating their skills on the pitch. Despite the lack of goals in the first half, the game was highly entertaining and kept the fans on the edge of their seats.

Real Madrid finished the first half with a slight advantage, having dominated the play for most part. However, Real Sociedad also had their moments and came close to scoring on a couple of occasions. Alexander Sorloth missed a great opportunity to score when he failed to convert Aihen Munoz's cross, and Asier Illarramendi had a powerful shot that just missed Thibaut Courtois' post.

As the first half came to a close, the action shifted to the other end of the pitch and Madrid had a few chances to score. Vinícius Junior was at the center of the action and had a great opportunity to score, but his shot went just wide of the goal. He also had another chance just before the half-time whistle, but his shot was straight at Sociedad goalkeeper Alex Remiro.

Karim Benzema, as usual, impressed with his footwork and had the crowd in awe with his ability to keep the ball despite close attention from the defense. Vinícius was not as clinical in front of goal, but he and Rodrygo remained a constant threat to the Sociedad defense.

The excitement continued in the second half, but the goals were rather hard to come by in this clash between the second and third-placed teams.

Real Madrid kept relying heavily on Vinícius to score goals. Unfortunately, he squandered his big chances. In one instance, he was presented with a difficult angle, and his effort was saved by Remiro, who made a low dive to prevent the goal.

In another one-on-one chance, the Brazilian tried to lift the ball over the goalkeeper, but Remiro was quick to anticipate the chip and push it away.

It kept looking like Los Blancos were on the verge of scoring, but Real Sociedad kept up an impressive defense and were able to end the match 0-0. Here is how Twitter reacted to the exciting draw:

@ESPNFC Vinicius Jr’s purple patch is over I’m afraid and he’s a one season wonder. I would rather have Rodrygo
Ancelotti has discussed rodrygo’s best positions all week just to play him his worst position 😭
At this point I want all our opponents to score against us within 20-30mins just so we’re motivated to score, this Real Madrid team is so weird
PSG down, Real Madrid down…investors are also down. The job is hard🤣😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Vinicius could have had three goals today with Benzema adding three assists. Vinicius end product is shambolic while Ceballos, Rodrygo and Camavinga dropped bangers today. Real Madrid can’t lose like this man!
@MadridXtra How is it possible vinicius is a prime ronaldinho everywhere on the field, and then he gets in the box and forgets how to play the sport
A very good Real Madrid performance ends 0-0. Five points behind Barcelona in the table now. Those missed chances by Vinicius could haunt the team late in the season.
A shame that in set-up like this, Vinicius Tobias didn’t get a run in.The RB has been the main culprit of not advancing properly into the scoring areas at consistent level — just not Nacho’s game and he cannot be blamed. Selection problem.
That Rodrygo x Vinicius linkup man
Hopefully Vinicius never gets injured because if Rodrygo takes that LW spot he’s going to be way more efficient
Camavinga's passing down the flank to Vinicius has been excellent
Vinicius has been our best player in the first half . Just can't finish his chances
Benzema is done physically, can't blame him tho
Vinicius can’t miss chances like that. And Benzema maybe shouldn’t give up chances like that.
Benzema doesn't get assists anymore I knew it wouldn't end up in a goal.
@_AsiwajuLerry Osimhen is going to Madrid...that's Benzema replacement.
@WolfRMFC We’re playing great, beautiful link up play between vini, rodrygo and Benzema 🔥
Victor Osimhen will easily replace Karim Benzema at Real Madrid.He's the best striker in the world right now, Erling Haaland doesn't even come close.
Real Madrid CAN press well & have it work out – they need right players for that.You now have Valverde, Camavinga, Vinícius, Benzema, Rodrygo, Camavinga, Rüdiger & Militão on the pitch — this is result you get.Forcing La Real in dangerous turn-overs time & time again.
When you watching Victor Osimhen you would think Benzema is a Journalist
This is the first time that Barcelona have a five point lead over Real Madrid since 2019.
There was a time when Real Madrid booed players who cost you games almost every week and who need to miss 50 big chances to score a goal. Today, they get applauded. The standards are at an all time low, almost feels like we've become Man United, applauding and clapping for flops.

Real Madrid intentionally dropping point to give Barcelona fans false hope is what I really love to see
The phenomenon of Real Madrid winning games only when they play Z tier football needs to be scientifically studied.

Real Madrid fail to catch up to Barcelona in La Liga title race

Real Madrid were facing significant pressure following Barcelona's victory over Girona on Saturday. The result has placed Carlo Ancelotti's team six points behind their arch-rivals in the La Liga standings.

Given the current situation, Los Blancos had no choice but to secure a win against Real Sociedad. However, they failed to secure the necessary three points that would have put them nearer to the Blaugrana in the league table.

The gap now sits at five points, which will be a cause for concern for the Madridistas. They now have 42 points from 18 games, while Barca have 47 points in their kitty.
