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.

⏱️ 4’ The home side take the lead within the opening four minutes. Youssef En Nesyri received a delightful pass inside the box before slotting the ball past the goalkeeper, a very smartly-taken goal by the Moroccan striker.

⏱️ 5’ The away side equalise within a minute, thanks to an own goal from Sevilla defender Diego Carlos, who lobs it over his own goalkeeper.

⏱️ 7’ Sevilla take the lead once more, two minutes after Sociedad had equalised! Youssef En Nesyri again with another smart finish, as he shots from distance. Sociedad stopper Alejandro Remiro can do nothing but simply watch the ball hit the back of the net.

⏱️ 14’ Only just the seven minutes in between goals. Sociedad again equalise, this time through Alexander Isak. Isak perfectly latches on to a cross from the corner kick and smashes the ball into the bottom corner of the Sevilla goal.
