Sociedad derby ends with spoils shared in Primera Iberdrola

Copyright: Gerard Franco

Eibar and Real Sociedad concluded their derby match with a draw. With Eibar sitting in ninth place and their rivals in seventh, both teams fought hard to upset each other.

Kgatlana opened up the scoring with a goal for Eibar in the 32nd minute, giving them the lead into half-time. Noelia intervened twice to prevent goals from Garcia and Eizagirre in the first half.

Arola shot struck a beautiful shot from long-range which was successfully saved by Sociedad in the second half. They restarted looking comfortable and hungry.

However, it would prove to be Sociedad who struck next. They tied the game thanks to Palacios, who found the back of the net with her equalise. But a penalty in favour of Eibar added some spice to match and gave Llompat the chance to take the lead again.

She slotted away the spot-kick and pushed her side ahead once more.

With four minutes added, it looked as though Eibar would come away with the points. Until a stoppage time strike from Franssi pulled the score level once more and split the spoils.

Sociedad still lead their rivals by six points and sit one behind Real Madrid in the Primera Iberdrola table.

Next up for Eibar, they will take on Granadillo Tenerife whilst Real Sociedad prepare to lock horns with Real Betis on Wednesday, 27 January.
