Atletico salvages 2-2 draw against newcomer Girona

Newcomer Girona was minutes away from beating Atletico Madrid in a stunning debut in the Spanish league until Atletico scored twice after the sending off of Antoine Griezmann to salvage a 2-2 draw on Saturday. Goals by Angel Correa in the 78th minute and Jose Gimenez in the 85th gave Atletico the draw after Girona forward Christian Stuani scored three minutes apart in the first half. "It hurts because we were on our way to a memorable result," Girona coach Pablo Machin said.
