Real Sociedad 2-0 Atlético Madrid

Real Sociedad v Atletico Madrid
Real Sociedad have won four of their last five La Liga games

Mexico international Vela, 27, broke the deadlock from the penalty spot after Gabi had tripped Yuri Berchiche.

Vela was then brought down in the area by Angel Correa which allowed Willian Jose to double the lead.
