Real Sociedad beat Las Palmas 1-0 in Spanish league

IANS  |  Las Palmas (Spain) 

A first-half goal by Oyarzabal lifted Real Sociedad to a 1-0 victory over Las Palmas in a Spanish-league match here.

The visiting team's win was much easier than the low score would suggest, as Real Sociedad had numerous opportunities to score and was very aggressive on the field, while Las Palmas showed almost no initiative at all on Saturday, reports

Las Palmas is now on track for relegation.

The only to show initiative was Argentine Leandro Chichizola, who managed to block every shot from the opposing team, except for Oyarzabal's left-footed shot from the center of the box in the 21st minute, after receiving a pass from Asier Illarramendi.

Willian Jose, Adnan Januzaj, Sergio Canales, Oyarzabal and even defenders and had opportunities to score, but Chichizola managed to block every shot except one, avoiding what could have been a harsh beating.

Las Palmas players slightly improved their game in the second half, although they did not manage to stop the Real Sociedad, which kept finding many clear - and wasted - opportunities.

With more than 30 minutes left in regulation, Las Palmas forward replaced Matias Aguirregaray and found two near opportunities to score with headers that flew over the goal post.
