Rodrigo scores as Valencia hold Atleti

A second-half volley from Rodrigo Moreno earned Valencia a point in an entertaining clash with Atletico Madrid on Monday.

Diego Simeone’s side had taken a first-half lead in the 26th minute, when a delicious threaded ball by Antoine Griezmann found Angel Correa, who coolly found the back of the net.

The visitors were on top in the first half, with Diego Costa almost doubling the lead, but Neto made a fine save for Los Che.

However, a rare mistake 10 minutes after the break by Diego Godin allowed Rodrigo to volley home the equaliser for Marcelino’s side.

Former Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista hit the post for Valencia, before new signing Daniel Wass was denied in the dying minutes by a fine Jan Oblak stop.
