Good start of Sporting
The "asturiano" side kept the line shown in the first matchday of the season against Real Madrid and they started the match strongly, thanks to the quick movements of Jony from the left side and the appearances of Isma López, who did not find a striker in a cross center that went away in front of Rulli´s goal.

Illarramendi´s return
Asier Illarramendi was the most sought-after player in his return match with Real Sociedad. David Moyes included him in the starting line up in his first game with the "donostiarra" team and the midfielder took command and brought balance in the center field of the team from San Sebastian.

The best chance by Vela
The best chance of Real Sociedad in the game was in the head of the Mexican Carlos Vela. The "realista" player could not manage to connect an accurate header in front of Cuellar and his shot grazed the post of the Sporting goal. The striker worked very well with Jonathas, but they failed to connect in clear chances.

Defensive solidity
Sporting showed that the defensive line remains as one of its strongest points. With order and the lines close together, the "asturianos" knew how to curb the rush of their opponent and just suffered in defense, where Bernardo and Luis Hernandez made a great match.

Halilovic´s glitter
On loan from FC Barcelona, Halilovic is one of the most exciting signings in Gijon. Abelardo gave him the chance to debut in the second half and showed great actions. He held the ball when the team most needed, cleared the game and left some of the finest movements of the match.
