Espanyol wins 1-0 at Real Sociedad in Spain


BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -Espanyol got its first away victory of the Spanish league season on Sunday, a 1-0 win at Real Sociedad that provisionally lifted it out of the relegation zone.

Sociedad had carried the weight of the game at Anoeta stadium until Diego Colotto tapped in a short pass from fellow center back Hector Moreno while sprawled on the ground following a corner kick in the 77th minute.

Espanyol's much-needed second win through 10 rounds kept it unbeaten in four league matches, while Sociedad remained winless in four games, including the Copa del Rey.

Later, Levante visits Sevilla seeking a fourth consecutive win that would propel it into fourth place in the Spanish league, keeping it in the thick of the race for a Champions League spot.
