Radamel Falcao scored a brilliant last-minute free-kick to give Atletico Madrid a 1-0 win at Real Sociedad and help keep his team level with Barcelona on 22 points at the top of Spanish football's La Liga.

The right-footed, curling strike was Falcao's ninth league goal of the campaign and the win was Atletico's 10th straight in all competitions, including seven in the league as they stayed eight points clear of city rivals Real Madrid who are fourth.
