Bebe's fine late strike earned Rayo Vallecano a 2-2 draw against high-flying Real Sociedad on Sunday in LaLiga.

The former Manchester United midfielder netted a vital stoppage-time goal for the second week running after his late penalty against Las Palmas last weekend.

Mikel Oyarzabal scored a brace for La Real, fifth, after Abdul Mumin opened the scoring for Rayo, but Bebe hammered home a low drive from long distance to share the spoils.

Real Sociedad are three points behind Atletico Madrid, fourth, who host Alaves later Sunday, looking to overtake champions Barcelona.

Rayo Vallecano are seventh, level on points with eighth-placed Betis, who beat Osasuna 2-1 earlier on thanks to Isco's superb late goal.

The ex-Real Madrid playmaker set up Willian Jose for the opener and then after Ruben Garcia appeared to rescue the visitors a point, Isco flashed a strike home in stoppage time to delight the Benito Villamarin.

Real Madrid lead LaLiga after their 2-1 win at Barcelona in the Clasico on Saturday, thanks to Jude Bellingham's brace.
