Atletico Feminas fall to Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad halted Atletico Feminas' winning streak as they beat them 1-0

Real Sociedad started the match strongly but struggled to test Atletico's goalkeeper with the away side's back line interpreting a very disciplined performance at the back. The Rojiblancos had the first effort on goal of the match through Ainoa but she missed the target by few inches. A few minutes later however, Aintzane made it 1-0 when her cross shot was misjudged by Dolores Gallardo. That put the hosts ahead in the first 45 minutes.

In the second half, Atletico made a few substitutions in their mission of levelling matters and they almost succeeded if Sonia Bermudez's shot did not hit smash off the cross bar. Bermudez had numerous occasions where she could equalize for Atletico but they seemed to be under a curse with the hosts resisting until the final whistle to register a prestigious win over one of the best sides in Spain. The loss leaves Atleti's ladies four points off top spot, still held by Athletic Club. The ladies will cross swords with second-place Barcelona next.
