A crazy opening 45 minutes of football between Sevilla and Real Sociedad produced an astonishing four goals, all of which were netted within the opening 14 minutes of the game, equalling a record that stretches back to 1988.

The last time this many goals were scored so early in a game was the February 27 1988 clash between Espanyol and Valladolid.
