Real Sociedad moved to the top of LaLiga with a 2-0 win at Celta Vigo.

Sociedad have been the surprise package of the season and extended their unbeaten run to 10 games, moving three points ahead of Real Madrid – who have a game in hand – at the summit.

Having survived an onslaught from Celta in the first half, Alexander Isak opened the scoring for the visitors nine minutes after the restart when he tapped into an empty net.

A dramatic night saw reigning champions Atletico Madrid drop more points in a 2-2 draw with Levante.

Diego Simeone’s men looked to be heading for three points after Matheus Cunha’s 76th-minute strike had restored their lead. Antoine Griezmann’s early strike had been cancelled out by Enis Bardhi’s 37th-minute penalty.

Simeone was sent to the stands and then another Bardhi penalty in the 90th minute earned the hosts a point as they ended the game with 10 men after Rober Pier received two yellow cards in nine minutes of injury time.
