Diego Reyes debuts with Real Sociedad.


The Mexican international El Tri teammates Carlos Vela and Diego Reyes play together for the first time with Real Sociadad vs Deportivo La Coruña. Both teams did no damage as the game ended in a scoreless draw.

Carlos Vela played well. It was evident his fitness level is still a problem. All this summers international duty and not enough preseason preparation sees Carlos Vela a bit slower, fatigued, and off on his passes at times. But even so, his class is undeniable as on more than one occasion he moved the ball dangerously, and it seemed any chance of goal Real had came through his feet.

Diego Reyes had a good debut in the Spanish league. For his part he played strong on defense. He managed the central defense like a veteran and did not look out of place though the league and team is brand new to him. It looks as though the Spanish league will fit his style of play well.

Costa Rican international Celso Borges had a good game with Deportivo. He was constantly a nuisance for the Real defense especially on the flanks. He had one great shot on goal that the Argentine keep Gulli barely managed to dive and save, which then Diego Reyes had to slide and kick the rebound out of bounds before other Deportivo teammates finished Celso’s shot in the net.
