Atlético Madrid moved up to sixth after a 1-1 draw at Sporting Gijón, a first point for Sporting's new manager Javier Clemente, who took over from caretaker coach Tejada midweek. He had Juan Pablo to thank in large part though, the keeper's early stop from Falcao the first of a string of saves. Godín headed the resulting corner over the top from close up, but a few minutes later the visitors went ahead when Canella turned Adrián's wayward shot past his own keeper. Gregory headed a free kick wide at the other end before Eguren equalised after Botía played on Colunga's cross, the first league goal that Courtois has let in since the arrival of Diego Simeone. But Juan Pablo saved the day again from Adrián, and Diego missed a good chance to restore the lead when he shot wide on the stroke of half time. After the interval Atlético continued to dominate, Gabi shooting just wide and Juan Pablo keeping out Falcao and Salvio. However the Asturians didn't give up, and they could have sneaked the three points had Courtois not kept out Colunga late on.
