    • - Thanks for joining us in what was one of the most exciting Liga games of the season.
    • 90+3' And that's it. An amazing game ends 3-3 at San Sebastian. Assuming Valencia hold on against Granada, they will have the advantage over Sociedad in the race for a Champions League place.
    • 90+3' GOAL! REAL SOCIEDAD 3-3 REAL MADRID. Xabi Prieto pops up at the far post to score from close-range and earn Sociedad a point!

    • 90+1' Agirretxe spurns another great chance as he heads wide at the near post!
    • 90' Griezmann puts the ball in the net but the flag had already gone up. That ball looked to come off a Real Madrid player, meaning Griezmann couldn't have been offside...
    • 89' It looks like Madrid are closing in on the three points, although you wouldn't put it past Sociedad to create one more chance.
    • 87' Griezmann blazes another chance over the bar. It's hard to recall a game with so many opportunities.

    • 80' José Ángel replaces Bergara for Sociedad.
    • 79' GOAL! REAL SOCIEDDAD 2-3 REAL MADRID Khedira plays a terrific one-two with compatriot Ozil and dinks the ball into the far corner! What a game!

    • 74' Lopez makes a fine save from an Ifrán free-kick and the ball falls to Agirretxe who can't convert with the goal gaping!
    • 73' Good play from Ifran who wins a free-kick on the edge of the area. Meanwhile, Khedira is down injured...
    • 71' Fine run from Higuain who takes on all comers before curling a mile wide. He opened his body up too much there.
    • 70' Castro has made way for Diego Ifrán in a Sociedad change.
    • 69' Another Real Madrid substitution as Callejon is replaced by Mesut Ozil. A decent substitute.

    • 67' Good defending from Carvalho who dispossesses Castro. The old boy has still got it.

    • 55' Good game this. End to end stuff.
    • 54' A strong run down the middle from Higuain but he is eventually barged off the ball by Alberto de la Bella. Higuain has never been the quickest...

    • 10' Imanol Agirretxe spurns a decent chance as he pokes the ball into the side-netting from close range.
    • 8' Nice strike by Higuain to the far corner, that one, but Bravo went down too early - should have done better.
