Madrid start title defence with a draw, with wins for Cadiz and Granada


Real Madrid football club started the 2020/21 La Liga season on a low note as they failed to collect maximum points against Real Sociedad after it ended goalless in a match played at the Anoeta on Sunday.

In a match of fewer chances from both sides, Real Madrid striker Benzema failed to convert the few chances that came his way and a draw is a fair result for the two sides despite it putting pressure on Real Madrid as they seek to defend the title they won last season.

In another match, Real Betis relied on 2 first-half goals from Fekir who converted a penalty spot-kick in the 10th minute before Cavalho registered his name on the score sheet 8 minutes later to defeat Valladolid 2-0.

At the Los Carmenes, Granada defeated Alaves 2-1 thanks to goals from Soldado and Machis with Joselu scoring the consolation for the visitors.

In another match on Sunday, Cadiz scored in each half to defeat Huesca 2-0 and collect their first maximum points of the season after losing against Osasuna last week.

Negredo opened the scoring in the first half before Pombo doubled the lead for Cadiz with only 7 minutes to full time.
