Real Sociedad returned from Celta Vigo Stadium with a ticket to qualify for the semi-finals of the Spanish Cup football competition, with a 2-1 victory yesterday, Tuesday.
After opening the scoring in the first seconds of the match through a header by Mikel Oyarzabal (2), Real Sociedad largely sealed the victory and qualification by adding a second goal in the second half through Surinamese Sheraldo Becker with a shot from outside the area following a counterattack (66), before Celta Vigo responded. Very late through the American substitute Luca de la Torre (2+90).
Sociedad, which occupies sixth place in the league after 21 stages, hopes to repeat the achievement of 2020 when it won the cup title for the second time in its history, after the first dating back to 1987.
The quarter-finals will continue today, Wednesday, when Real Mallorca will meet Girona and Athletic Bilbao will meet Barcelona, and will conclude tomorrow, Thursday, with Atletico Madrid meeting Seville.
