La Liga result – Sociedad move fourth after Espanyol win

​Espanyol 1 – 2 Real  Sociedad

Asier Illarramendi scored a stunning winner as Real Sociedad moved above Atletico Madrid into fourth place in La Liga on Friday night with a 2-1 victory at Espanyol.
Carlos Vela opened the scoring for the visitors in the 26th minute, controlling a fine pass from David Zurutuza and neatly slotting a left-footed finish past Diego Lopez.

The lead was short-lived, with Hernan Perez cutting inside to evade defenders Yuri Berchiche and Inigo Martinez before coolly side-footing home.

But Illarramendi restored Sociedad’s advantage just after the hour mark with a brilliant solo goal.
The result lifted Sociedad into the top four at the expense of Atletico, who host Celta Vigo on Sunday evening.

While Espanyol stayed eighth.
