LaLiga Highlights: Atletico Madrid 1-1 Valencia (FT)
Dani Parejo's late free kick negates Diego Costa's penalty as Atletico Madrid and Valencia play to 1-1 draw
Dani Parejo's wondrous late free-kick earned Valencia a 1-1 draw at Atletico Madrid, who were dealt a huge blow with an injury to Joao Felix.
Atletico appeared on course for a routine 1-0 win thanks to Diego Costa's 36th-minute penalty, the striker finding the net from the spot in a game that saw he and Alvaro Morata miss great chances.
However, the much-maligned forward pair's profligacy was eventually punished as Joao Felix, the €126million close-season signing from Benfica, had to be helped off with 10 minutes remaining, leaving an Atletico side that had already used all three substitutes with 10 men.
Parejo quickly took advantage in stunning fashion, bending a sublime strike beyond Jan Oblak and into the top-right corner to secure a share of the spoils despite Lee Kang-in's injury-time red card.
Atlético Madrid put a premium on a fast start. After Atlético wheezed to the finish line at Valladolid, Saúl Ñíguez criticized his team's approach, insisting that his teammates - and by extension, his coach
