The loss led to inevitable questions over the future of manager Santiago Solari, but he received the backing of Ballon d'Or victor Luka Modric, who said that it was up to the players to improve their performances - and to stop conceding early goals.
Solari was incensed after referee Jose Munuera ruled that Madrid forward Vinicius Junior was not fouled by Sociedad goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli while bearing down on goal in the 65th minute, and then decided against consulting the VAR team, which did not refer the incident to Munuera.
"We are all human and we all make mistakes, but when you have the chance to look over the evidence again and you do not, it's hard to understand".
The referee can either request a review from his video assistant, or the video assistant can recommend a review to the referee. The decision was "scandalous", Ramos said later.
Stressing that "it upsets all of our plans", Ramos added, "We would have liked to have got the year off to a good start, but it's not turned out that way". Midfielder Ruben Pardo sealed the points with a late header for Sociedad's first win at Real since 2004, after the hosts' winger Lucas Vazquez was sent off for a second yellow card.
It has been a testing season for Real Madrid, and last night's humiliating defeat to 12th place Real Sociedad was the cherry on top of the slightly mouldy cake for Santiago Solari and his Los Blancos side.

Real director Emilio Butragueno also took issue with the VAR.
"This game came at an important moment".
Luka Modric was able to pull one goal back for Madrid away to Sevilla, which would have made it 3-1, but VAR was consulted by referee Hernandez Hernandez and he could see that the Croatian was offside, so the goal did not stand.
"You can not blame the coach, he's doing a fantastic job and it's not him failing to score goals or keep them out at the other end", said the Croatian, turning the blame on the players.
"I think that we all have to be self-critical", Modric continued.
