Result: Real Sociedad come from behind to draw at Espanyol

Real Sociedad miss a host of chances as they come from behind twice to draw 2-2 at Espanyol in this evening's La Liga game.

Real Sociedad had to come from behind twice to draw 2-2 at Espanyol in La Liga this evening.

The home side started well but tired in the second half and were lucky to escape with a point in the end.

After a scrappy opening period, Espanyol found themselves ahead almost from nothing. The ball broke kindly on the left for Simao, whose cross was tapped in at the front post by Sergio Garcia.

The away side started to get into the game more after that and after missing a couple of half-chances through Antoine Griezmann and Asier Illarramendi, Sociedad were level.

Espanyol's Kiko Casilla rushed out of his goal to punch the ball away but it dropped into the path of David Zurutuza, who opened up his body and volleyed it over the defence and into the empty goal from 30 yards out.

The home team responded well and went ahead again shortly before half time when Christian Stuani met Garcia's square pass to slot the ball past Enaut Zubikarai.

After the break Sociedad started to dominate. Griezmann and his strike-partner Imanol Agirretxe were both guilty of missing the target from good positions.

Sociedad continued to keep Casilla busy throughout the half and 15 minutes from the end, their pressure told, albeit in unfortunate circumstances.

A chipped ball over the top found Griezmann, whose first touch bounced against Espanyol defender Javi Lopez and past the goalkeeper.

The visitors continued to push forward for an equaliser, with Griezmann missing yet another good chance, but were ultimately disappointed and had to settle for a point.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
