Football news – Joao Felix sees red as Atleti draw against Bilbao, Radamel Falcao scores on debut
Joao Felix saw red for Atletico Madrid as Diego Simeone’s side drew 0-0 with Athletic Bilbao on Saturday night.
Antoine Griezmann was preferred over Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez but the ex-Liverpool and Barcelona man replaced him shortly after the restart as the home side chased a winner.
Joao was almost the decisive scorer but was sent off after receiving a second yellow for dissent as he tossed the ball into the crowd.

Elsewhere, another former Atletico striker Radamel Falcao hit the net as he scored in his first appearance for Rayo Vallecano as they beat Getafe 3-0.
The 35-year-old, who has also played for Galatasaray, Chelsea, Manchester United and Monaco in recent years, was a second-half substitute.
“He came wanting to help the team and integrate as quickly as possible,” Rayo coach Andoni Iraola said after the match.
“He trained well, he helped us and scored the goal that ended the game. We have to keep working with him. He has to adapt to certain ideas but his own condition is very good.”
