Antoine Griezmann scored a free kick, but Atletico Madrid missed the chance to lead the Liga table on Saturday with a 1-1 draw with leganes.

Griezmann appeared in the second half of the game to show the goalkeeper on goal difference but Butarque, but Guido Carrillo equalized in the 82nd minute with a half-footed shot from leganes.

Atletico could be heading to Barcelona for a few minutes, but instead Diego Diego Simeone is a point behind the leaders who face Rayo Vallecano on Saturday. Leganes are in 18th place and are unbeaten in five games.

Diego Costa, Diego Godin and Koke are all struggling with injuries and are missing out on the Atleti lineup, and they may not be fit to risk, with the Champions League clash at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.
Atletico sit second in Group A with three points behind German opposition.

But the style of performance is also worrying Simeone, who beat Dortmund 4-0 just nine days ago, and failed to beat Leganes, with second-leg play.

"We played a lot of things we wanted but we wanted to sort it out," Simeone said.

"The feeling is bitter," added Niguez. "We know that they are in league games where Leganes play in the first half of the first half, but we have a great ambition and we have won."

None of them scored the equalizer in the first half and two goals from two.

Griezmann netted the winner in the 69th minute, but was caught by French defender Pichu Cuellar and left-back.

But Atletico have never seemed to have made Leganes as a replacement for Rodri Tarin, who completed the ball in Carrillo to close.

Griezmann could still be fit for Atletico when he was injured, but Filipe Luis returned to the side in the second half. Simeone struck his neighbor, his arm.
