Fair draw

Real Sociedad secured a point during their visit to Getafe. The txuri urdin, in a scrappy game with little action, had to settle for a draw that, overall, can be considered fair. Barrene put the txuri urdin ahead whereas Óscar equalized before halftime.

The first half saw Real Sociedad taking the lead swiftly. A rapid attack down the right wing resulted in a precise cross from Becker, which Barrene headed into the net at the far post. While the game lacked attractiveness, a common trait in Getafe matches, the side from San Sebastián had relatively good control of the match. However, Óscar leveled the score thirty minutes into the game after Remiro's remarkable save from Maksimovic's header. In the final minutes of the first half, Imanol's side had a promising opportunity to regain the lead through Zakharyan, but the Russian's shot went straight into Soria's hands.

The second half kicked off with a clear opportunity for the home team, as Óscar's free-kick hit the post and skimmed across the goal line without finding the net. Real Sociedad encountered difficulties in generating scoring opportunities and faced challenges in linking up plays. Nevertheless, Sadiq and Turrientes managed to create a couple of dangerous chances.

Real takes a point from Getafe and will have to keep fighting to secure a European spot. With only six games remaining this season, every match is crucial.  We are Real.
