Almeria missed a penalty and saw two efforts crash against the woodwork in a goalless draw with Atletico Madrid on Sunday.

Felipe Melo De Carvalho could be considered the biggest culprit in Almeria´s squad of mis-hitters, the midfielder having seen his penalty saved by Leo Franco, but it was the Atletico keeper who made the difference.

The Argentina stopper was in formidable form, producing a finger-tip save in the very first minute and following it up with a variety of vital blocks in a pulsating first half.
