Llorente double gives Athletic 2-1 win at Sociedad
SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain (AP) -Forward Fernando Llorente scored a goal in each half to give Athletic Bilbao a 2-1 win at Real Sociedad for its first league victory of the season at the sixth attempt on Sunday.
The Spain international opened the scoring in the 34th minute to give Athletic a halftime lead.
Sociedad's Inigo Martinez scored the equalizer with a long-range effort from the halfway line, but Llorente gave Athletic coach Marcelo Bielsa his first league win since joining the club in the offseason with his second in the 70th.
Later Sunday, Barcelona travels to Sporting Gijon, while Real Madrid visits Espanyol.
