Almeria was reduced to 10 men soon after when left-back Alex Centelles was shown a straight red card. The visitors held on to earn a point.

Sadiq was substituted late in the game. The goal is his first in the Spanish top flight. He fired blank in Almeria’s first game against Real Madrid which ended in a 2-1 loss.
