Real Sociedad gets back on track, while Getafe and Betis tie again

1-0 for the ‘txuri-urdin’ team over Mallorca and 1-1 between the azulones and verdiblancos


Real Sociedad won this Saturday 1-0 against RCD Mallorca, with a goal from Brais Méndez, and thus resumed its triumphant path in LaLiga EA Sports, whose matchday 10 also saw an entertaining 1-1 between Getafe CF and Real Betis, meaning a new tie for both in the championship.

At the Reale Arena in San Sebastián, the locals showed better aim than their rival, although they did not open the scoring until well into the second half. In an already common action by Take Kubo in the attacking phase, the skilled Japanese striker approached the area from the right and looked up.

From the spot, Kubo crossed with his left foot to the penalty spot, so that his teammate Méndez jumped and headed the goal powerfully. The Mallorca goalkeeper could do little in the face of that point-blank shot that, in the end, provided San Sebastian’s victory. Mikel Oyarzabal scored almost immediately to make it 2-0, but did not get on the scoreboard due to offside.

In the final stretch, the Balearic team almost equalized with a header from Vedat Muriqi as a result of a commotion in the small area and which crashed into the crossbar. This defeat left Mallorca with eight points, very close to relegation; For its part, the ‘txuri-urdin’ team achieved its fifth victory of the league season and reached 18 points in the noble zone.

On the other hand, at the Getafe Coliseum, the blue team signed a fun equalizer against a Betis team that took the lead after 57 seconds. As soon as he served from the center, Marc Roca triangulated an offensive on the left wing and made a one-two with Borja Iglesias that put him in front of the local goalkeeper; Roca, with nerve, sent his shot into the back of the net.

However, José Bordalás’s men responded in the 17th minute. After a set piece, Diego Rico crossed from the left into the heart of the area, where Borja Mayoral rose higher than the central defender who was covering him and headed the score 1-1, which no longer moved despite the efforts that one and another team starred in the second half of the clash.

Fifth draw for Getafe and also for Beticos in the 10 league games already played. This result placed the Seville team with 14 points, just behind the European positions, and placed those from the south of the Community of Madrid with 11 points in the middle of the table.
