Real Madrid suffered its seventh loss this season, its sixth outside its bases, and its third in its last three matches, when it fell to its host, Real Sociedad IV, with two clean goals, on Tuesday, in the thirty-third round of the Spanish Football League.
Real Madrid’s balance froze at 68 points in second place and threatened to drop to third place if its neighbor Atletico Madrid defeated its guest Cadiz on Wednesday, while Real Sociedad strengthened its chances of winning the last, fourth card that qualifies for the Champions League next season, after strengthening its position in fourth place. With 61 points, eight points temporarily ahead of his fifth chasing Villarreal, who will be a guest at Valencia on Wednesday as well.
And it seemed well that Real Madrid was affected by the absence of its Croatian stars Luka Modric and the Austrian David Alaba due to injury, the Brazilian Vinicius Junior and the French Eduardo Camavinga due to the injury and its top scorer and French captain Karim Benzema after the Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti preferred to rest him.
Real Sociedad succeeded in opening the scoring through former Real Madrid international Japanese midfielder Takefusa Kubo, who took advantage of a wrong ball from Militao to Courtois, and followed it into the empty goal (47).
Real Madrid’s ordeals increased by expelling his defender, Dani Carvajal, by meeting him with a second yellow card (61).
Barinichea added the second goal when he received a ball inside the area from Silva, so he prepared it for himself and slid it to the right of Courtois (85).
