Osasuna put in a nice performance in their opening game of the season, they drew 1-1 against Malaga. Both teams played a boring first half with few shots on goal, as Nauzet Perez’s shot was the only one on target. Later, Malaga broke the deadlock in the 56th minute but were unable to protect their lead. Osasuna later equalised in the 85th minute to earn them a point, they now hope for a better performance at home this week.
Sociedad were whipped 3-0 at home by Real Madrid in the opening fixture, losing all 3 points. Bale broke Sociedad’s heart early in the game, he headed home in the 2nd minute to give Los Blancos the lead. Young prospect Asensio scored Madrid’s 2nd goal in the 40th minute, before Bale grabbed a brace in the stoppage time. Sociedad needs to bounce back from this defeat and get prepared for this weekend trip.
