However, with Zinedine Zidane‘s side only creating half chances in the first half, they have been unable to make a telling impact on the Sociedad goal.
Imanol Alguacil’s side have taken full advantage of Real Madrid’s lack of cutting edge in attack, with midfield star Portu heading them in front on 56 minutes.

Nacho Monreal’s deep cross was not cleared by the Real Madrid defence and Portu stole in at the back post to nod home.
Zidane has reacted swiftly to try and wrestle his side back into the tie with Rodrygo Goes and Hugo Duro coming off the bench.
