Carlos Vela's double sealed Real Sociedad de Fútbol's return to the UEFA Champions League group stage after a ten-year hiatus, the Basque club completing a 4-0 aggregate play-off win against Olympique Lyonnais.

Having put themselves in a commanding position with a 2-0 first-leg victory, Jagoba Arrasate's charges were seldom in danger of being denied a place among Europe's elite for the second time. In control for large stretches of the Anoeta contest, La Real had to wait until Vela headed in a 67th-minute corner to breathe a little easier. The Mexico striker capped a fine display with a superb individual effort in added time.

    The final whistle is blown.
    Real 2-0 Lyon (agg. 4-0) Two goals from Carlos Vela have sent La Real into the group stage of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in ten years. A superb display from the home side has seen off a spirited effort from Lyon by 4-0 on aggregate.
  • Goal
    90+1
    Vela (Real Sociedad) scores!
    Carlos Vela wraps up the tie with a splendid individual goal. He collects the ball inside his own half and breaks forwards leaving three defenders trailing in his wake, he rounds the last man and dinks the ball over the goalkeeper for his second of the night. A lovely strike.

    Xabi Prieto, the Real captain gets a warm reception as he leaves the field. He celebrates his 30th birthday tomorrow and will doubtless be happy to do so as captain of a side in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.
