Real Madrid players celebrate

Real Madrid produced a convincing performance to beat Real Sociedad and extend their lead at the top of La Liga to eight points.

The impressive Vinicius Jr opened the scoring for the visitors, combining well with Luka Jovic inside the area before finding the bottom corner.

Jovic, who replaced the injured Karim Benzema in the first half, then scored his first goal of the season, heading in from close range following a corner.

The hosts created little in response.

Alexander Isak flicked on a well-weighted delivery from Diego Rico in the first half, but Eder Militao recovered well to block the Sociedad forward’s effort.

Militao, who looked solid in the centre of Madrid’s defence, sent Vinicius through with a clever pass late on, but the frontman was denied by the feet of keeper Alex Remiro.

It means Real Madrid head into the derby against Atletico a week on Sunday with a healthy lead at the top after Diego Simeone’s side were beaten 2-1 at home by Mallorca.
