Atleti Slip To A Goalless Draw Against 10-Man Getafe

La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid drew 0-0 away to struggling Getafe on Saturday despite against José Bordalás' 10 men.

Getafe's Allan Nyom was shown a red card after a VAR review for a crunching tackle on Atletico's Renan Lodi in the 70th minute but the visitors could not make their advantage count.

Atletico did manage to put the ball in the net in the second half when Joao Felix nodded in a cross from Marcos Llorente but it did not count as the ball had gone out of play, while substitute Moussa Dembele missed two good chances to score.
