Real Madrid came from behind to beat Real Sociedad 4-1 on Saturday, increasing its lead in the Spanish La Liga. Luka Modric and Eduardo Camavinga scored blistering strikes from beyond the area.
After his midfielders scored just before halfway to overturn Mikel Oyarzabal’s early penalty (10), Karim Benzema added a second-half penalty (76) to put the game out of reach and increase his league-leading goal tally to 20. Marco Asensio then scored the fourth goal to end the match (79).
Madrid will prepare for Wednesday’s crucial match against Paris Saint-Germain, with the French team holding a 1-0 lead in the round of 16 clash.
The victory over Sociedad put Madrid eight points ahead of second-placed Sevilla, which had been held to a scoreless draw at Alavés the day before.
