A late goal by substitute Adnan Januzaj handed Real Sociedad a 1-1 draw at Atletico Madrid on the final day of LaLiga as they finished sixth in the standings to secure a spot in the Europa League.

The draw left Atletico on 70 points, 17 behind champions and city rivals Real Madrid and 12 behind Barcelona. They will be join in next season's Champions League by fourth-placed Sevilla, who beat Valencia 1-0.

Granada hammered Atletico Bilbao 4-0 to nab seventh place and a spot in the second qualifying round of the Europa League.

Needing only a point to make it into Europe next season, Real Sociedad's dream was almost shattered when an outrageously brilliant backheel from Atleti's Alvaro Morata teed up the ball for Koke to blast home on the half-hour mark.
