La Liga bottom side Almeria twice came from behind to hold Atletico Madrid to a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

The stalemate left the hosts winless this season after 26 matches.

Atletico, who lost 1-0 in the Champions League last-16 first leg tie at Inter Milan in midweek, remain fourth, 10th points off leaders Real Madrid.

Angel Correa volleyed Diego Simeone's side into a second minute lead, with AC Milan loannee Luka Romero levelling for Almeria before the half-hour mark.

Rodrigo de Paul restored Atletico's lead on 57 minutes, only for Romero to earn the hosts a well earned draw shortly after following a slick one-two with Jonathan Viera.

On Sunday, table-toppers Real Madrid face Sevilla, with third-placed Girona not in action until Monday when they take on Rayo Vallecano.
