With his team already up 1-0, Vela scored an audacious chipped goal in the eighth minute – his second tally in three matches.
It was just the fourth league goal for Vela in 2015-16, one season after netting nine times in La Liga. After scoring a brace on Oct. 25, the 26-year-old did not score in the league for Sociedad until Jan. 22.
Fellow Mexico international Reyes – on loan from Porto – saw his first Liga action since December and started as a defensive midfielder. The normal center back made his minutes count with a headed goal off a corner kick in the 55th minute, his first tally for Sociedad.
