Madrid: Basque outfit Real Sociedad went on top of Spain’s La Liga on Friday thanks to a 1-1 draw at home against bottom side Leganes.
Leganes striker Mikel Merino got the away side off the mark in the 63rd minute before Moroccan Youssef En-Nesyri equalised with a header on 78.
“I see long faces both inside the dressing room and out of it, but we have to be happy,” said Real Sociedad coach Imanol Alguacil.
His opposite number Javier Aguirre overseeing his first point in his first match in charge was also positive.
“We’re still bottom and that’s how it goes sometimes but we have got a point at a difficult ground against a strong side who are top of the league and I’m really happy for the boys,” said Aguirre.
Leganes have just six points and will be locked in a long struggle to climb out of the relegation zone.
