Without spending a single penny in the current window, Real had the Norwegian Martin Odegaard as a great new player. The 21-year-old midfielder spent the last season on loan at Sociedad, where he excelled.
He started the match in place of Casemiro and was replaced in the second stage by the Brazilian.
Coach Zidane also promoted in the second stage the debut of young 20-year-old striker Marvin in Spanish.
Real made their debut a little later in the current season for playing in the Champions League playoff. Sociedad adds two draws in two disputed rounds.

REAL SOCIEDAD: Remiro; Gorosabel, Elustondo, Le Normand and Muñoz; Guevara, Merino, Portu, Oyarzabal (Januzaj) and Barrenetxea (Bautista); Isak (David Silva). Coach : Imanol Alguacil

Second game. Five years after his debut, Martin Odegaard made his second LaLiga match for Real Madrid.
42 minutes. First shot on goal by Real Sociedad in the match. Basque team was dominated for much of the first half.
Madrid dominate, Sociedad has better chance
The first half was widely held by Real Madrid. With 69% possession of the ball, the team from the capital kicked seven times, but failed to bring so much danger to Remiro's goal.
However, the best chance was of the home team: Isak appeared from the left side of the area and demanded a good defense from Courtois at the end of the first stage.
Second stage without shine
In the second half, Sociedad started more aggressive and almost opened the scoring by Barrenetxea. Real Madrid responded with a shot from Benzema, who demanded a good save from goalkeeper Remiro.
The rest of the stage had little chance for either side.
