A worrying head injury suffered by Fernando Torres overshadowed Antoine Griezmann’s brilliant equaliser as Atletico Madrid salvaged a 1-1 draw away to struggling Deportivo La Coruna in LaLiga on Thursday.

Diego Simeone’s men had to finish the match with 10 men, Torres appearing to be knocked out following a clash of heads with Alex Bergantinos in the closing minutes.

The draw sees Atletico stay fourth and move one point ahead of Real Sociedad, their closest rivals for a Champions League qualification spot.

In the other game of the day,  Vicente Iborra’s strike ensured Sevilla remain firmly in La Liga’s title race thanks to an important 1-0 home victory over Athletic Bilbao.
