Sociedad too strong for Leganes

Willian Jose and midfielder Xabi Prieto scored a goal in each half as Real Sociedad defeated Leganes 2-0 away from home to move to within five points of the Spanish league leaders on Friday.

The visitors opened the scoring when Jose headed in a Carlos Martinez cross on the half-hour mark.

Prieto made sure Sociedad took maximum points when he stabbed home a right-footed effort in the 59th minute.

The win moves Sociedad to 16 points after 10 matches, five points behind league leaders Real Madrid who play Alaves on Saturday.

Leganes, who were promoted to the Spanish top flight this season, remain on 10 points in 14th place.
