Back to reality this week for Atlético Madrid after their win in the Bernabeu stadium last weekend, and after losing their Champions League opener on Tuesday, they dropped points in the Calderón stadium following a 2-2 draw with Celta on Saturday evening. Tiago fired an early shot wide, but Pablo Hernández gave the Galicians the lead with an incredible back-heel shot, the Argentian midfielder sticking his leg back to deflect (accidentally or not?) a long Planas punt past Moyà. Sergio Alvarez had to be on his toes though to keep out Griezmann and Ansaldi, and with just over half an hour gone Miranda got on the end of a long Koke free kick to equalize. Atleti were back in it, and when Godín rose above the visiting defence to head in a Gabi corner it seemed that they were on their way to victory. However Celta came out fighting after the interval, Hugo Mallo bringing a good save out of Moyà before half time substitute Nolito levelled it from the penalty spot after Miranda tripped Planas inside the area. From then on the locals did most of the attacking, but Raúl Jiménez and Raúl García had strikes ruled out for offside, and alvarez pulled off first class saves from Jiménez, Koke and Tiago. In the end a point apiece, and both teams maintain their unbeaten league records this season.
