MADRID: Real Madrid’s chances of chasing La Liga leader Atletico Madrid were scratched when they were tied 1-1 with Real Sociedad.
Vinicius Junior’s last-minute goal saved one point for Real Madrid run by Zinedine Zidane after Sociedad led Portu’s goal early in the second half.
Atletico’s victory over Villareal on Sunday put them six points ahead of Real Madrid, an advantage that is now only five points ahead of Madrid’s neighbors in Wanda Metropolitano this Sunday. Atletico also played less than one match.
The draw ended Real Madrid’s five-game winning streak and the defending champions were conceded for the first time in five games.
“There are also matches that we win even though we do not have the right to win, we can not change it.
“We have to keep trying, the journey is still a long way off,” Zidane said.
