Real Sociedad boss Eusebio Sacristan has described the 4-2 victory over Deportivo as ‘very important’as his side made it three wins out of three.
The game started well for the visitors as a double from Juanmi gave them a 2-0 lead as early as the third and fourth minute.
Depor were stunned but they did well to react and claw their back into the game as Adrian Lopez struck just before the hour mark.
With the game sitting at 2-1 to the visitors at the break, Pepe Mel’s side came out fighting and got themselves back level through Florian Andone, who profited from some great Adrian work.
With the game heading for a draw, a mad final ten minutes ensued as Sociedad took full advantage of some poor defending to take the lead through second half substitute Diego Llorente.
And, they would grab one more before full time as Asier Illaramendi netted with four minutes left to play on the clock.
“It was a great victory, we had been very good from the beginning but Depor played well and made us suffer a lot. We reacted well and continued to play our way, and we got our prize at the end,” Sacristan told reporters.
Three wins out of three now for Sociedad sees them the only side to sit level with Barcelona at the top of the La Liga table, whilst Depor sit 14th and have failed to win so far this season.
