FT: Real Sociedad 1-3 Real Madrid
...
90+4' Ramos charges through the middle, before playing it wide to Bale on the left, who reponds with a low cross back to Ramos, but since it's on his left foot, the defender doesn't get any purchase on his shot.
...
90+3 Nacho comes on to replace Theo, who is still clutching his shoulder.
...
90+1' GREAT DEFENDING BY VARANE! Juanmi appeared to have beaten him to be through on goal, but Varane's recovery pace brings him back and he intercepts the ball.
...
90' 5 minutes of injury time.
...
90' SHOT! Vela takes a shot from the edge of the box with his right foot, and it is quite clear that his stronger foot is the left.
...
89' It appears Theo has dislocated his shoulder, but he's back on his feet, if a bit gingerly.
...
88' Worrying scenes for Real Madrid as Carvajal and Theo are both down with injuries, while Kevin is also down after a sliding clash with the Madrid right back.

...
85' Dani Ceballos comes on to replace Marco Asensio for Real Madrid
...
84' Great defending from Carvajal as he makes a crucial interception to prevent Zurutuza from getting a shot off on goal.
...
82' GOOOOO.... NO! Asensio has the ball in the net with a clever finish from a narrow angle, but the ref disallows the goal for offside. Looked rather questionable, that as Bale was offside but did not make a move to the ball as Casemiro played it through.
...
81' SHOT! Great play from Sociedad down the left, as Zurutuza sends Vela clear; and the Mexican responds with a clever clipped cross to the near post, where Willian Jose shoots right at Navas.
...
80' Dani Carvajal seems to have come off worse in that headed challenge with Agirettxe and is back up after a bout of treatment.
...

...
77' Adnan Januzaj comes off to be replaced by Imanol Agirretxe
...
76' Isco sends Asensio clear down the left wing, and he plays and early low cross that looks destined to find Bale at the far post, but Llorente slides in to intercept the ball.
...
75' Borja Mayoral comes off to be replaced by Lucas Vazquez
...
74' SHOT! Isco ignores Bale in acres of space down the right, before taking an optimistic pop from range. One feels for the Welshman...
...
72' Casemiro is down and receiving treatment after being clattered into from behind.
...
71' SHOT! Kevin Rodrigues again! Ramos heads a corner out for Madrid and the fullback hammers a thunderbolt from distance with his right foot, but Navas watches it fly wide of his goal.
...
69' Xabi Prieto goes off to be replaced by Juanmi. Sacristan going all out in attack now!
...
68' Casemiro goes down in the box while challenging for a header from a corner, but the ref barely pays attention as the Brazilian went down a bit easily.
...
6 - Gareth Bale is now the highest scoring visiting player at the Anoeta in the history of La Liga.
...
66' Oh no! Asensio with a brilliant pass to Theo sends him away on the counter-attack through the middle, with only two defenders to worry about, but he slips at a crucial moment while collecting the ball.
...
63' Ramos and Carlos Vela are both down injured, with Willian Jose going into the book for his foul on Ramos, while Casemiro goes into the book for his foul on Vela. Seconds between both the fouls.
...
61' HE LOVES THE ANOETA DOESN'T HE?!! Gareth Bale at his best - A long ball from Isco sends Bale clear and he comfortably outpaces Kevin to the ball before chipping the ball over the advancing Rulli to score a superb, priceless goal for his career.

Real Sociedad 1-3 Real Madrid
...
61' GOOOAL GARETH BALE!!!
...
59' Asensio does well to hold off Vela and make his way to the byline, but Vela eventually nicks the ball of Asensio, before Odriozola sprints off on the counter attack. Isco fouls the Sociedad player, but escapes a booking.
...
57' Carlos Vela comes on to replace Sergio Canales
...
56' OUCH! The battle between Theo and Odriozola gets a wee bit bloody as the Sociedad fullback is shoved into the advertising boards on behind the goal after going shoulder-to-shoulder with Theo.
...
54' Madrid earn a corner of their own, but it is easily cleared. The visitors recycle the ball and find Asensio on the left, who takes an early shot on goal to try and catch out Rulli, but the Sociedad keeper is alert.
...
53' SHOT! A bouncing ball falls to Deigo Llorente on the edge of the box from a corner and he shows good technique to get a volley off, but Navas saves.
...
52' SIDE NETTING! Asensio sends Mayoral clear down the left side of the box and he hammers a shot at Rulli, which the keeper spills, but Mayoral slams the rebound into the side netting from a narrow angle.
...
50' Januzaj causes chaos by getting past Carvajal and forces a corner, with Sociedad getting a header on goal from the set-piece, but Navas collects the effort which is right at him.
...
49'' Sociedad appeal for a penalty as Prieto goes down in the box rather easily under pressure from Theo while challenging for a cross. The ref waves play on with both players getting into an argument before Ramos plays good cop by separating the two.

I live in a world where Sergio Ramos is the voice of reason. Joy.
...
48' Willian appears to have been sent clear on goal from Zurutuza's through ball, but Varane makes up the yards and shoulders the striker off the ball.
...
47' An early attack from Madrid, as Isco toe-pokes a pass forward to Asensio down the left wing, but his low cross while off-balance is comfortably collected by Rulli.
...
46' PEEEEP! Real Madrid get us underway in the second half, kicking off from right to left
...
The teams have exited the tunnel and have made their way back onto the pitch. No changes from either side at half time, with the second half coming up in a few moments.
...
Well, I did say his time had come...

Take a bow, Borja Mayoral, who has shown an excellent nose for goal, if not the most promising of movement. His first goal for the club ensured that Real Madrid have now scored in 73 consecutive games in all competitions, equalling the record set by Pele's Santos from 1961 to 1963.

The second was a wee bit fortunate, but Mayoral can take pride from forcing an own goal. Has Zinedine Zidane found his temporary solution to Karim Benzema's injury?
...
HT: Real Sociedad 1-2 Real Madrid
...
45+3' Bale sends Mayoral clear with a clever through ball, but the ref pulls play back for offside, with the Anoeta cheering ironically.
...
45+1' Adnan Januzaj goes into the book after taking issue with the ref for not blowing for a foul.
...
45' 3 minutes of injury time.
...
44' SAVE! Modric cuts inside from the left channel and curls one with his instep to the far post, but Rulli is equal to the challenge and makes the save. Madrid recycle the ball, with Asensio trying another of his curlers from the right wing, but his effort flies well wide.
...
43' SHOT! Asensio works a couple of yards of space on the left channel, before letting fly with his wand of a left foot, but his effort is decidedly less magical than his usual fare, trickling well wide.
...
42' Isco is tugged back as Real Madrid set off on the counter and Illaramendi goes into the book for his cynical foul.
...
73 - Real Madrid have scored in each of their last 73 games (all comps), equalling Pele's Santos' record between 1961 and 1963. Historic.
...
39' GREAT DEFENDING FROM BALE! Illaramendi floats a ball into the box, and looks to have caused a fair amount of chaos, but Bale bails out his teammates with a great block.
