Atletico Madrid were held to a 1:1 draw by neighbours Leganes on Saturday, November 3, 2018. With the draw they threw away the chance to go top of La Liga.
Before conceding a late late equalizer, France forward Antoine Griezmann had given Diego Simeone’s side the lead with a sizzling free-kick in the 69th minute in a typically tight game at the Butarque stadium.
However Leganes hit back when striker Guido Carillo stabbed a loose ball over the line in the 82nd minute after full back Rodrigo Tarin’s cross thumped off the underside of the bar.
Atletico have failed to win their three games at Leganes since the latter were promoted to the top flight for the first time in 2016, drawing their last two outings at Butarque 0:0.
Simeone’s team are second with 20 points, one point behind champions Barcelona who visit Rayo Vallecano later on Saturday.
