La Liga: Real Sociedad edge past Cadiz to extend their lead at top

La Liga result: La Liga leaders Real Sociedad extended their lead at the top of the table after they edged out Cadiz 1-0 away on Sunday to earn a sixth consecutive league win.

Real Sociedad took lead through Sweden forward Alexander Isak who jumped high enough at the far post to head in a cross from Adnan Januzaj in the second half.

The Basques had goals by Isak and Mikel Merino ruled out for offside either side of halftime before Isak struck, while Merino also had a shot cleared off the line by Cadiz defender Fali.
