MADRID (AP) - Real Sociedad missed a chance to put pressure on the Champions League spots after conceding a stoppage-time equalizer in a 2-2 draw at Rayo Vallecano in the Spanish league on Sunday.
Bebe scored one minute into injury time to give the hosts the draw after Sociedad had taken the lead with a pair of goals by Mikel Oyarzabal in the 41st and 66th minutes. Abdul Mumin had opened the scoring for eighth-place Rayo, which was looking for its second consecutive win after four straight draws.
Fifth-place Sociedad could have moved only one point behind fourth-place Atletico Madrid, which hosts Alaves later Sunday. Sociedad had won six of its last seven matches in all competitions, with its only setback a loss at Atletico two rounds ago. It can drop to sixth place if Basque Country rival Athletic Bilbao defeats Valencia later.
Bebe had also scored in stoppage time in Rayo's 1-0 win at Las Palmas in the previous round.
ISCO SAVES BETIS
Isco scored four minutes into stoppage time to give Real Betis a 2-1 home win over Osasuna.
Isco found the top of the net after Ruben Garcia had equalized for the visitors in the 85th. Willian Jose had put Betis ahead after an assist by Isco in first-half injury time.
Betis had only two attempts on target, and Osasuna one - all three of them successful.
Seventh-place Betis hadn't won in two league matches, while 11th-place Osasuna had won two of its last three games.
On Saturday, Real Madrid came from behind to win 2-1 at Barcelona with both goals by a red-hot Jude Bellingham - including in second-half stoppage time - in the first "clasico" of the season in the Spanish league. Madrid leads the league with 28 points, tied with Girona, which defeated Celta Vigo 1-0 on Friday.
