However, despite the final result, the visitors started brightly at the Estadio Anoeta.

A defensive mix up from a corner allowed Alvaro Morata a simple chance to stab home his third goal of the season.

Atletico came close to doubling their advantage before the break, with Morata’s effort ruled out after a handball by Joao Felix, and Yannick Carrasco hitting the post.

However, with Los Rojiblancos unable to force home a second, Sadiq popped up at the back post to nod the hosts level on 55 minutes.

Sadiq also saw a goal ruled out late on, before Atletico duo Felix and Koke were both denied in a dramatic seventh minuted of added time.
