Share This Story



Almeria rallied from a goal down to beat Valencia 2-1 and record its first win of the Spanish league season on Wednesday.

Defender Marco Torsiglieri headed home Almeria's equalizer in the 62nd minute to cancel out the hosts' first-half penalty, scored by Jonas.

Almeria, which is last in the standings, secured its victory when Aleix Vidal cut inside before unleashing a shot that deflected into the top corner in the 69th minute.

Valencia has lost three straight games.

Elsewhere, Real Sociedad goalkeeper Claudio Bravo saved Patrick Ebert's stoppage time penalty to preserve a 2-2 draw at Valladolid.

Antoine Griezmann scored a pair of goals either side of the break before Valladolid hit back with late goals from Daniel Larsson and Javi Guerra.

Real Madrid plays Sevilla later Tuesday.
