Januzaj winner sends Sociedad third

By AAP Newswire

Real Sociedad climbed to third in the Spanish La Liga table with a 1-0 victory over Real Valladolid.

It was a game of few chances, with the visitors not managing an effort on target until second-half injury time.

Sociedad only had four, but one of those in the 60th minute saw Adnan Januzaj head in Mikel Oyarzabal's cross.

The win lifted the Basque side above Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Getafe and to within 10 points of Real Madrid ahead of their Clasico derby against Barcelona on Sunday (Monday AEDT).
