|Goal by Gareth Bale for Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad|
Real Sociedad lost 0 - 3 to Real Madrid. Comfortable game for the visitors who started with Kovecic & Asensio, leaving on the bench Isco & James. Real Madrid was superior throughout & the goals fell in the following order:
- Gareth Bale 2nd min, 0 - 1
- Marcos Asensio 40th min, 0 - 2
- Gareth Bale 90th min, 0 - 3
Good start & win for Real Madrid.
Atletico de Madrid hosted promoted Deportivo Alaves & the final result 1 - 1 drew. A rocky & at the same time solid Alaves defence, lead by their goalkeeper Pacheco, kept out all of the Atletico multiple attempts at goal right up till the last moment when Gameiro transformed a penalty. However, big surprise, just when At Madrid thought they had the match, Manu Garcia equalized for Alaves in the 94th min.
Sanctioned Antonie Griezmann was missed by At. Madrid which needed that "extra something" tonight which the Frenchman has to break through well positioned defensive set ups.
