La Liga: Omeruo Shares Derby Points With Griezmann
Nigeria international, Kenneth Omeruo was in action for 90 minutes as the derby clash between Leganes and Atletico Madrid ended in stalemate on Saturday.
Atletico Madrid actually threw away the chance to go top of La Liga by conceding a late equaliser to draw 1-1 away to neighbours Leganes on Saturday as their miserable run at the Madrid minnows dragged on.
France forward Antoine Griezmann had given Diego Simeone's side the lead with a sizzling free-kick in the 69th minute in a typically tight game at the Butarque stadium.
But Leganes hit back when striker Guido Carillo stabbed a loose ball over the line in the 82nd after full back Rodrigo Tarin's cross thumped off the underside of the bar.
Atletico have failed to win their three games at Leganes since the latter were promoted to the top flight for the first time in 2016, drawing their last two outings at Butarque 0-0.
After Saturday’s outing, Omeruo via a post on his Instagram account admitted that it was a tough game against a good side.
With the point from the derby clash, Leganes are still in the relegation zone and would need more points to escape the drop.
