Sevilla v Atletico Madrid

Sevilla v Atletico Madrid
This was Atletico Madrid's first draw in La Liga since 20 September

Defending champions Atletico Madrid lost further ground in the La Liga title race as they were held in a bad tempered stalemate at Sevilla.

There were 11 yellow cards in total, with visitors Atletico having seven players booked in Andalucia.

Sevilla had the best chance before the interval when midfielder Vicente Iborra clipped a shot against a post.

Atletico looked dangerous when substitute Fernando Torres came on but could not find a breakthrough.

Former Chelsea and Liverpool striker Torres spurned two chances, one when played through by Antoine Griezmann and another when he sent an angled shot past the far post.

Diego Simeone's Atletico stay third in the table on 54 points, five behind second-placed Barcelona, who won at struggling Granada 3-1 on Saturday.

Atletico's next league game is at home to fourth-placed Valencia on 8 March.
