Oscar Gonzalez’s 75th-minute goal earned Valladolid a 2-2 draw with Real Sociedad, who led on two occasions in Monday’s La Liga clash.
Antoine Griezmann scored both goals for Sociedad but Valladolid came from behind both times to secure a draw and avoid a second-successive defeat.
Griezmann’s first goal came in the 36th minute when he finished from a corner by Gonzalo Castro but Valladolid were level again at half-time thanks to a long-range strike from Patrick Ebert two minutes before the break.
Having hit the bar just after the break, Griezmann struck his second goal of the match, taking a pass from Carlos Vela and scoring from just outside the penalty area.
It was the 21-year-old French striker’s third goal of the season.
Sociedad were on track for their fourth win of the season, which would have taken them above Valladolid and into the top half of the La Liga table but the home side spoiled that with 15 minutes to play.
Ebert swung his right-wing cross towards Gonzalez and the 29-year-old midfielder produced a strong header to equalise.
Jose Angel almost won the game for Sociedad in the final minutes but his shot from the visitors’ defensive half was tipped over the bar by Valladolid goalkeeper Daniel Hernandez.
Valladolid remain in the top half of La Liga in 10th with 11 points, while Sociedad are 15th, one point behind.
