Adan sent off, Ronaldo bags a brace & Xabi Prieto a hat-trick as Real Madrid beat Sociedad 4-3

Real Madrid 4 – Real Sociedad 3 (La Liga, January 6, 2013) (Alternative highlights & longer highlights.) Real started 2013 on the front foot as Karim Benzema scored after just two minutes. The crazy start to match continued in the 6th minute when keeper Adan was sent off whilst giving away a penalty, Iker Casillas came off the bench and immediately conceded a penalty to Xabi Prieto. Ten minutes before the break, Sami Khedira regained the lead for Madrid with a back heel. The visitors were level again in the 39th minute when Xabi Prieto slid home his second. Midway through the second half, Cristiano Ronaldo burst through and made it 3-2. Minutes later it was 4-2 from a swerving Cristiano Ronaldo free-kick. Almost immediately Sociedad reminded us they were still in it as Xabi Prieto made it 4-3.
