La Real miss out on top spot

Real Sociedad missed out on top spot of their Europa League group after a final day defeat at home to Zenit Saint Petersburg.

Eusebio Sacristan’s team lost both of their head-to-head clashes with the Russian club with Thursday’s 3-1 defeat at home ensuring they would have to make do with second spot.

Goals from Alexandr Erokhin, Branislav Ivanovic (with a remarkable overhead kick) and Leandro Paredes gave Roberto Mancini’s side victory while Willian Jose’s cancelling of the opening goal not enough for the hosts.

La Real won both of their matches against Rosenborg and Macedonian side Vardar to progress ahead of the final matchday.
