Argentine Aguero scored from a Thiago pass just before the half-time break.

He then fired in a solo goal to restore their lead in the 61st minute, after Albert Crusat had levelled for Almeria with a fierce volley.

Henok Goitom headed a deserved equaliser 13 minutes from time to leave Atletico seventh with 39 points.

The result, coupled with defeat for Hercules at Real Madrid, sees Almeria rise to 18th, although they remain in the relegation zone.
