Thanks to a goal from its center forward Carlos Fernandez (32nd), and well helped by the red card collected by Selim Amallah (45th) for strong protests following an initial yellow, Real Sociedad signed an important victory at Mestalla, on the Valencia field (0-1). This success allows Imanol Alguacil’s men to return to the top 5.
Their schedule will gradually get tougher in the coming days, with, from Saturday, the reception of Athletic Bilbao, fourth in Liga but only two points behind the Basques after this Wednesday’s draw against Getafe (2-2). Subsequently, Real Sociedad will travel to Salzburg for the second day of the Champions League (October 3), then to Madrid for the 8th day of the Championship, against Atlético (October 8).
Hanging on the Cádiz pitch (0-0), Rayo Vallecano is 6th in Liga.
