Real Betis and Real Sociedad sign off September with key wins

Real Betis and Real Sociedad continued their positive recent form with crucial wins ahead of the international break.

Los Verdiblancos wrap up September by moving up into third place in the La Liga table as they picked up a 2-1 win at home to Girona.

Despite Arnau Martinez putting the visitors ahead at the Estadio Benito Villamarin, Borja Iglesias celebrated his midweek Spain call up with an equalising spot kick, and a late winner for the hosts.
