La Real climb four with Alaves win

Real Sociedad climbed four places to 12th with a 2-1 victory at home to Alaves on Sunday, to ease any remote relegation fears.

Eusebio Sacristan’s side struck after only six minutes when Hector Moreno struck after Sergio Canales’s corner was not cleared by the visitors.

Five minutes later and Asier Illarramendi doubled La Real’s advantage, after Jon Bautista’s initial effort was only parried by Alaves goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco.

Alfonso Pedraza halved the deficit when he pulled one back for the visitors before the break following Martin Aguirregabiria’s cross, but no second half equaliser could be found.
