Real Sociedad tied up the second of the Europa League spots after a last minute 2-2 draw at Celta on Sunday, the result taking them a point above arch-rivals Athletic in the table. Although they had nothing to play for after their elimination from the Europa League, the Galicians wanted to finish in style, and Roncaglia and Wass went close early on. Sergio Alvarez had to save from Willian José and Carlos Vela before the interval, but some ten minutes in to the second half Iago Aspas was brought down by Iñigo Martínez in the area, and Aspas himself fired home the resulting spot kick. With eight minutes to go Oyarzabal made it all square after Xabi Prieto set him up, but a strike from Hjulsager appeared to have ended Real’s European hopes until Juanmi headed in a Canales corner in the fourth and final minute of time added on.
