Atletico equalise
Atletico require one win from their two remaining games to secure a place in next season's Champions League

Fernando Torres scored an equaliser 10 minutes from time as Atletico Madrid salvaged a point at struggling Levante.

David Barral gave the hosts the lead but Guilherme Siqueira struck back almost immediately in the first half.

Kalu Uche put Levante back in front before Torres, on loan from AC Milan, scored a header from Koke's corner.

Levante are now five points clear of the relegation places with two games to play, while Atletico can secure a Champions League spot with one win.

Diego Simeone's Atletico side play Barcelona, who are one victory away from securing the title, and Granada in their remaining fixtures, subject to the Spanish Football Federation's suspension of all football in the country being lifted.

Former Chelsea and Liverpool striker Torres, 31, has scored three league goals in 18 matches since joining from Milan in January.
