La Liga leaders Real Sociedad's six-game winning streak ended on Sunday as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Villarreal.

The visitors took an early lead as Gerard Moreno converted a penalty after six minutes but Sociedad pulled level when Mikel Oyarzabal also netted from the spot in the 33rd.

Villarreal looked more likely to find a winner in the latter stages and had another penalty appeal turned down deep in stoppage time when Moreno was tackled by Igor Zubeldia.

Sociedad are top with 24 points after 11 games but second-placed Atletico Madrid are one point behind with two games in hand. Villarreal are third with 20 ahead of Real Madrid on 17.
