Atletico Madrid 1-1 Liverpool Highlights

Liverpool were denied another three-point haul in the Champions League as Simao Sabrosa netted a late equaliser to earn Atletico Madrid a 1-1 draw.

0-1 R.Keane 14′

1-1 Simão 83′

The unmarked Simao – once targeted by Reds boss Rafael Benitez – drilled home a low shot with seven minutes remaining to cancel out Robbie Keane’s early opener for Liverpool as the two sides, having each won their first two games, remained unbeaten in Group D.

Liverpool controlled the first half and held a deserved lead at the break but Atletico, who had been unbeaten in their previous six home meetings with English opposition, fought back to salvage a point which could ease the pressure on under-fire coach Javier Aguirre.
