The match began, and it was understandable that the first goal was going to be important. A lot of expectation was from Mikel Oyarzabal, who had scored the winning shot against Barca in this very stadium earlier in the month. Both the teams fought for possession as the match proceeded. As it reached its 7th min, Illarramendi threw some challenges in the way of Casemiro. Real was seen passing and probing in the Sociedad half and enjoying possession, as the match rolled into the 10th min. James collected a Nacho pass and tried to feed Bale, but Gonzalez was on hands for a challenge. Eventually, Nacho delivered the ball to James again, but his low strike was saved by Rulli.
