La Liga: Sociedad Trails With 1-0 Win vs Athletic Bilbao in Basque Derby

Real Sociedad ended the year by getting back to winning ways beating Basque rivals Athletic Bilbao 1-0 away from home in La Liga on Thursday.

AllNews understands that it was Sociedad's first league victory since November 22nd took them to 29 points from 17 games, six behind leaders Atlético Madrid who also have three matches in hand.

Portu's lone strike gave the Basque club their first victory in all competitions in 10 matches.

Forward Portu struck the only goal of the game in the fifth minute by tapping in a cross from his side's top scorer Mikel Oyarzabal, who was making his first appearance since getting injured on Dec. 3.

The visitors looked far likelier to get a second goal than concede an equalizer to an unimaginative Athletic, who could not manage a single shot on target.

Sociedad's Swedish forward Alexander Isak smashed a shot against the crossbar in the second half while Igor Zubeldia missed the target from close range when Athletic keeper Unai Simon spilled a stinging shot from Oyarzabal at his feet.
