La Liga leader Real Sociedad's six-game winning streak ended on Sunday as it was held to a 1-1 draw at home to Villarreal.

The visitor took an early lead as Gerard Moreno converted a penalty after six minutes but Sociedad pulled level when Mikel Oyarzabal also netted from the spot in the 33rd.

Villarreal looked more likely to find a winner in the latter stages and had another penalty appeal turned down deep in stoppage time when Moreno was tackled by Igor Zubeldia.
