Gareth Bale scored a superb goal as Real Madrid ended Real Sociedad's 100% winning start to the season in La Liga.

The Welshman had been poor up until his strike when he outpaced Kevin Rodrigues before dinking a finish into the net.

Striker Borja Mayoral netted the opener for Real Madrid, tucking in his first goal for the club from close range.

Home full-back Rodrigues had gone from hero to villain, volleying home an equaliser which squirmed under Keylor Navas, before scoring an own goal.

The match was held up for several minutes following the home side's equaliser, as a television cameraman received treatment and was taken away on a medical cart with his leg in a brace.

He appeared to be injured as the crowd around him, in a temporary stand, celebrated the goal.

Zinedine Zidane's side remain unbeaten this season with two wins and two draws, moving up to fourth in the table, four points behind leaders Barcelona.
