[VIDEO PICK] Inigo Martinez, Real Sociedad's 20-year-old defender, scored from the halfway line for the second time in two months.

On Sunday, Martinez's long-distance strike in second-half stoppage time gave Sociedad a 3-2 win over Real Betis, which had overcome a two-goal deficit with goals in the 81st and 85th minutes.

It was Martinez's third La Liga goal. The first was a rocket from halfway in October in a 2-1 loss to Athletic Bilbao.
