At the moment of shooting, he was hooked by Diego Llorente and the referee did not hesitate for a second when he blew and pointed to the penalty spot.
Nor did Sergio Ramos hesitate when he took the set from eleven meters. The team captain ran forward, stopped halfway and then continued forward and rolled the ball to the right of the goalkeeper who had already left.

But the accident didn't end there for Real Sociedad - not even two minutes later Karim Benzema extended to 2-0.
The Frenchman took a post in the penalty area, went from wrong to right and got to a finish that threw in along the ground.
Real Sociedad reduced with six minutes left but did not come any closer.
