The hosts came into the game having not tasted a home defeat since December 2012, and they once again set about asserting their authority.

Luiz Adriano opened the scoring late in the first half before Alex Teixeira took advantage of a defensive error to thump home a second after the break.

Douglas then made sure of the result with a brilliant third in the 68th minute.

Teixeira progressed from his own half virtually unscathed before feeding Douglas on the left-hand side of the area.

The 23-year-old Brazilian then rifled home an unstoppable shot into the left upper corner of the net, leaving Sociedad goalkeeper Claudio Bravo no chance.

Douglas added his second three minutes from time with a header from the left side.
