Real Madrid continued their confident march towards the La Liga throne with a slender 1-0 triumph over Real Sociedad. Despite Carlo Ancelotti opting to rest key players in preparation for the upcoming UEFA Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich, Los Blancos’ secondary squad showcased their mettle on the field.

Real Sociedad dominated possession throughout the encounter but struggled to convert it into clear-cut opportunities. However, in a rare moment of vulnerability from Sociedad’s defense, Arda Guler seized the chance, calmly slotting home Dani Carvajal’s precision cross in the first half.

Sociedad thought they had found parity shortly after when Take Kubo found the net, only for the goal to be disallowed due to a foul committed by Ander Barrenetxea on Aurelien Tchouameni.

The second half witnessed few real threats to Real Madrid’s goal, as they maintained their defensive resilience. With their commanding lead in the league standings, Real now stand on the brink of sealing the championship within the next couple of games.

Currently boasting a formidable 14-point advantage over second-placed Barcelona, Real Sociedad’s defeat leaves them clinging to sixth place in the table.
