Real Madrid have reached at the top of of La Liga points table after beating Real Sociedad 2-1 on Sunday. The win took Zinedine Zidane team to leapfrog Barcelona in the Spanish table.

Madrid captain Sergio Ramos broke the deadlock in the 50th minute by converting a penalty after Vinicius Jr. went to ground in the area following contact from Sociedad’s Diego Llorente.

Sociedad thought they had levelled with a strike from Adnan Januzaj from outside the box but the goal was ruled out after a VAR review showed Mikel Merino obstructing the view of Madrid keeper Thibaut Courtois without touching the ball.

Their sense of injustice deepened a minute later when Karim Benzema doubled Madrid’s lead in the 71st minute after controlling the ball with the top of his arm, although Merino ensured an exciting finish by lashing in off the crossbar in the 83rd minute.

However, Zidane’s side clung on for the win to move level with Barca on 65 points after 30 games – and Los Blancos climb above the Catalans, who were held 0-0 at Sevilla on Friday, due to a superior head-to-head record.
