Girona 2 Atletico Madrid 2: 10-man Atleti battle to draw after Griezmann sees red

Atletico Madrid snatched an unlikely 2-2 draw at LaLiga newcomers Girona after Antoine Griezmann was sent off at Montilivi.

A pair of headers in the space of three first-half minutes from Uruguay international Cristhian Stuani had the Catalan club within touching distance of a remarkable triumph.

Victory seemed virtually assured for Girona after Griezmann collected a second yellow card for dissent immediately after being booked for diving.

But substitute Angel Correa rifled in from the edge of the area at the end of a brilliant solo run in the 78th minute and a previously nerveless showing from Pablo Machin’s men wobbled in untimely fashion.

Goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz was culpable as Stuani’s countryman Jose Gimenez converted Koke’s free-kick and embarrassment was averted for Diego Simeone’s side.
