Bebe scored a spectacular half-volley as Eibar beat 10-man local rivals Real Sociedad 2-0 in LaLiga.
Rob will be here soon. In the meantime: here’s Sid’s season preview
80 min Sergio Ramos is given good reason to go down when Oyarzabal, lining up a left-footed shot, gets a slight touch on the ball with his standing foot and thus belabours first fresh air and then Ramos’s leg.
This is a lovely finish from the highly promising Marco Asensio. Varane drills a 50-yard pass from right to left to put Asensio behind a dithering defence. His first touch is immaculate, controlling it into the space in front, and with his second he dinks it teasingly over Rulli and into the net. That was beautiful.
48 min Kovacic breaks into the area on the left, draws Rulli from his line and plays it across the box, but Martinez slides to put it behind for a corner.
10 min As play goes on, there is extended applause for Dalian Atkinson, who played here with John Aldridge and Kevin Richardson in that excellent early 1990s side.
On 10 November 2014, Real Sociedad announced David Moyes as the chosen manager, to replace Jagoba Arrasate, who was sacked following a series of bad results, both home and abroad. Moyes also became the fourth British manager in the club's history. Moyes was sacked 9 November 2015 after falling to 16th in La Liga, later that day he was replaced by Eusebio Sacristán.
12 min This game has the slight feel of a pre-season friendly, with lots of slow, uninterrupted passing moves from both sides.
The former Arsenal forward pounced from close range just after the hour mark to seal back-to-back victories at the Anoeta for the first time since February, following last week's 4-1 success over Las Palmas -- in which Vela also scored.
66 min A real substitution: Lucas Vazquez replaces the impressive youngster Asensio.
Real have scored over 100 league goals in seven of those eight seasons, which shows you just how hard it is to win this thing of theirs. The champions Barcelona got off to a slow start yesterday, edging past Real Betis 6-2. Real, who start with a tricky trip to Real Sociedad, will be keen to match their result, if not necessarily the six goals. Their season hasn’t even started, and already they can’t afford to drop points.
It was much ado about little. Ramos and Marcelo shoved the teenager Oyarzabal for no particular reason, which set Yuri off, and after that there was a bit of pushing and shoving from both sides. File under ‘modern football.
86 min Sociedad want a penalty after a tangle of legs between William Jose and Casemiro, who falls on the ball with his hand. The referee gives a foul to Madrid.
46 min Peep peep! Sociedad begin another 45 minutes of futility.
1 min Peep peep! Real Madrid kick off from left to right. For those reading on the internet, they are in black Sociedad are in blue and white stripes.
72 min Another Sociedad substitution, with Xabi Prieto replacing Juanmi. Madrid also make a change; Kroos off, Isco on.
A wonder strike from 60 yards by Nicola Sansone steered Villarreal to a 2-1 win over 10-man Real Sociedad at El Madrigal.
22 min Real Madrid are cruising through the game, and their biggest threat is probably complacency. It shouldn’t be this easy in an elite league. It’s like watching the Premier League in the late 2000s.
54 min Morata is booked for diving. It looked a penalty at first, although replays suggest the referee might have got it right.
73 min There was an off-the-ball incident a couple of minutes ago in which Yuri seemed to headbutt Morata, who went down in the contemporary style. On reflection it wasn’t a headbutt, more a coming together of heads. File under ‘modern football.
Hello. Not for the first time, Real Madrid are in the strange position of being the best team in Europe and the second-best in Spain. They won the Champions League last season for the second time in three years, but they have won only one La Liga in the eight years since Pep Guardiola took over at Barcelona and changed the world, and Spanish football.
Real Sociedad has also several sports sections: women's football, track and field, field hockey and basque pelota.
Gareth Bale finishes what he started, bursting beyond a static defence to go round Rulli and score with the last kick of the game.
The Spanish Centro de Investigaciones Sociologicas (Centre of Sociological Investigations) found out that of 2,473 adults interviewed in 49 provinces, 1.3% of the Spanish population have more feelings for Real Sociedad than any other club, and 1.5% have more feelings for La Real than any other club apart from their favourite.

27 min Sociedad have no choice but to play like the away team, counter-attacking whenever they can. It’s a very one-sided game, although Rulli has only had that one save to make.
Madrid are in total control thanks to a good goal from Gareth Bale and a fine one from Asensio. There aren’t many galacticos in the line-up but they are playing beautifully. See you in 10 minutes.
Pass-completion stats make me want to do what MTV made Beck want to do.
67 min “That Sociedad keeper is on loan from Man City,” writes Dan ucas. “Something something pass completion stats.”

15 min Ramos miscontrols a pass on the halfway line, allowing Oyarzabal to break clear of the defence. Casilla comes a long way out of his area to clear the danger.
There will be someone there whose job it is to count and sanctions will apply to the stand and the corners opposite the master camera – the televisual U, it’s called. The bit that can be seen. As for the bit that can’t be seen, well, that bit can’t be seen.
