Tuesday’s draw at Sociedad saw Super Eagles striker Umar Sadiq come on in the 86th minute, and was involved in his side’s 96th minute equalizer scored by Martin Zubimendi.

Sociedad had their first choice keeper Alex Remiro sent off on 36 minutes.

Alaves had to wait till the 76th before taking the lead through Luis Rioja who converted from the penalty spot.
