Azerbaijani football club Qarabag have claimed their first UEFA Champions League away point after being held to a 1-1 draw by Spanish Atletico Madrid in the fourth match in Group C.

The Azerbaijani debutants dreamt of a first win when Míchel headed in not long before half-time. But Thomas Partey levelled in the 56th minute and not long after Qarabağ lost Pedro Henrique to a red card, followed late in the game by Atlético's Stefan Savić. Atlético, also without a win, are four points off second-placed Chelsea with Qarabağ one further behind.
