Real Sociedad win and recover Oyarzabal and Villarreal win the derby

The Real society closes 2022 with a good victory over Osasuna (2-0) at the Reale Arena, with 3 points and an extra value for the return of Mikel Oyarzabal after 9 months out due to injury, while the villarreal came back to open with victory in the derby against Valencia CF (2-1) the remodeled Estadio de la Cerámica.

Undoubtedly, the best news for Real Sociedad was seeing their captain Mikel Oyarzabal on the pitch again, after tearing the cruciate ligament in his left knee last March. In minute 87′, already 2-0 on the scoreboard, the historic Anoeta surrendered to his ’10’.

The game was already resolved when Oyarzabal completed the party. At 22′, Brais Mendez He finished off with his left foot from the right wing, inside the area, to beat Aitor Fernandez with a tight shot to the left post.

Brais Mendez attended David Silva shortly after for the canary to test the rojillo goalkeeper. La Real dominated and Osasuna tried, helplessly, to encircle the rival goal, although only the Chimy Avila Y Ruben Pena they seemed to have some danger in their boots.

Already in the second part, Osasuna put one more gear and did manage to disturb the people from San Sebastian. He tried his luck with Aimar Oroz either Jon Moncayolawho had the equalizer in a distant shot that brushed the crossbar.

However, Real Sociedad was regaining control and the weight of the game. Again thanks to Brais Méndez, one of the best in the ‘txuri-urdines’, Real came close to making it 2-0 but the Galician’s shot in minute 58 went licking the post. And he didn’t hit the mark either Momo Cho Two minutes later.

The goal of tranquility and the sentence came at 64′, when alexander sorloth He finished off with his left foot inside the area to beat Aitor Fernández down the middle, with the assistance of the omnipresent Brais Méndez after a long pass into space.

The Valencian goal, after a quarter of an hour, did not wake up Villarreal. The people of Castellón, who were returning to their fiefdom after months of work to get the new Estadio de la Cerámica up and running, had trouble reacting and failed to lock Valencia in their own area.

In fact, with samuel lino either Yunus MusahThe team of Gennaro Gattuso He had the best chances to try to extend his lead. A mastery and some good sensations that were canceled when, on the brink of rest, Samu Chukwueze He finished off a great counter and Gerard Moreno’s assist was good.
