Substitute Ousmane Dembele rescued a late point for Barcelona in an exciting finish against Atletico.

A disappointing game was drifting to a goalless draw when Antoine Griezmann whipped in a corner for Diego Costa to head Atletico ahead in the 77th minute.

The home team looked secure, but Lionel Messi picked out Dembele with a minute left and his controlled finish beat Jan Oblak.

This result leaves Barcelona top of La Liga and Atletico in second.
