Real Sociedad celebrate taking the lead against Athletic Bilbao inthe Basque derby

Real Sociedad boss David Moyes was denied a win in the Basque derby as Oscar de Marcos equalised for Athletic Bilbao, who finished with 10 men.

Former Arsenal forward Carlos Vela headed Real into a fourth minute lead following Chory Castro's cross.

Inigo Martinez and Alfred Finnbogason wasted chances to extend Real's lead before De Marcos connected with Markel Susaeta's ball to equalise.

Athletic defender Aymeric Laporte was sent off for two bookable offences.

Real substitute Sergio Canales was denied a late winner when he hit the woodwork.

Moyes's side move up to 14th in the La Liga table ahead of an away game at Levante on 20 December, the last before the winter break.

Moyes has one win in his first four league games in charge, with two draws and one defeat.

Athletic remain 10th in the table.
