BARCELONA, Spain -- An equalizer from Neymar saw Barcelona salvage a 1-1 draw at home to Atletico Madrid on Tuesday after a stunning opener by Diego Ribas in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal. Atleticos chances were dealt a major blow half an hour in when striker Diego Costa came off injured, while Barcelona had lost defender Gerard Pique to injury before that. But Diego Ribas, who replaced Costa, stunned the Camp Nou 56 minutes in with a powerful shot from about 25 metres (yards) that grazed the fingertips of goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto as it soared into the top corner. With Lionel Messi kept quiet by Atleticos well-organized defence, Neymar stepped up to curl the equalizer around goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois in the 71st. Courtois made a number of acrobatic stops after that to preserve the draw, including in the 85th when he tipped Messis free kick around the post. "They played a good game and they made it very hard for us to create chances," Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez said. "We have to try and score in the return -- this was not a good result for us." Atletico, which leads Barcelona by a single point in the Spanish league, leaves with a valuable away goal before the return on April 9. In Tuesdays other quarterfinal first leg, defending champion Bayern Munich drew 1-1 at Manchester United. For the fourth time this season, neither team emerged victorious but Atletico returns to the Vicente Calderon buoyed by its performance after having lost its top player to a hamstring injury that could sideline him from the second leg. Pique has already been ruled out with a hairline fracture of his right hip. "This is a team of men, who play with heart and pride, who never give up," Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. "Im happy because we can compete with them. Im very happy because we are in this." While Piques exit hurt Barcelonas brittle defence, Diego Costas injury left the visitors without their leading scorer and scrambling for options off the bench with Raul Garcia suspended. Diego Ribas was the lone option. Striker David Villa had Atleticos best scoring chances in the first half as the former Barcelona forward curled wide a clear opportunity from inside the area five minutes in -- before forcing Pinto into a diving stop just before halftime. Between those efforts, Barcelona dominated possession, with Diego Godins sliding block keeping Andres Iniestas effort out before Diego Costa pulled up clutching his right thigh. Atleticos physical play proved wearing for Barcelona, and pressured Pinto into errant goal kicks like the one that gave Villa his opening opportunity. Courtois was alert to a Messi header to keep it scoreless at the break, but Atletico regrouped and emerged for the restart to stun the hosts with Diego Ribas opener. Neymar and Messi failed to link up on a cross in the 65th, as Atleticos back four continued to make life difficult for the Spanish champions -- until Iniesta spotted Neymars run and the Brazil striker curled his shot around Courtois. Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino brought Alexis Sanchez on for Cesc Fabregas and shifted Neymar to the left side. The extra attacking player clearly helped as Iniesta threaded a perfect ball into the area for the Brazil striker to equalize. The goal lifted the Camp Nou crowd and turned the tables on Atletico. But Courtois settled his teams nerves by making a diving save to Iniestas long-range shot in the 73rd minute, before then stopping a late effort from Messi. "Its going to be such a hard game against a great opponent. Its going to be a very passionate game," Simeone said before calling on his players to seize the opportunity should Diego Costa not be available. "Its up to the team and the players to respond and make up for his (possible) absence." Buffalo Bills Jerseys . -- Once again, Carlos Santana was a huge hit in Kansas City.

HARRISON, N.J. -- Tim Cahills header in the final seconds of stoppage time lifted New York to a 2-2 draw with the New England Revolution on Saturday night, clinching a playoff berth for the Red Bulls. New England (11-11-9) trailed, 1-0 until the last five minutes, getting a penalty kick from Lee Nguyen in the 85th minute and a breakaway goal from Diego Fagundez in the 90th. During the closing seconds of stoppage time, Jonathan Steele lifted a free kick from the left side toward the goal for the Red Bulls (15-9-8) and Revolution keeper Matt Reis punched the ball in the air. Cahill headed it high from the middle of the box into the net for the tie. The Red Bulls are unbeaten in their last six games (4-0-2). "I tried to push it nicely so I didnt hit it too hard," Cahill said. "I wanted to have it sit nicely because I knew the keeper came out. I wanted to have a nice float in and be safe. I feel like it was definitely deserved." Fabian Espindola had scored an uunassisted goal in the 14th minute as the Red Bulls held a 1-0 lead until the penalty kick by Nguyen, which was awarded for a hand ball on New Yorks Jamison Olave.dddddddddddd Olave said the ball hit his chest and showed mark of the ball on his jersey. "You saw the replay, right?," Red Bulls goalie Luis Robles said. "It hit his gigantic chest. Obviously it wasnt a penalty, but it didnt go our way that time." Espindola took advantage of a Revolution mistake to score his ninth goal of the season. New Englands Scott Caldwell made a touch pass back to teammate A.J. Soares, but Espindola cut between them to steal the ball. The Argentine striker quickly cut into the middle and unleashed a low shot from just outside the box that beat Revolution keeper Matt Reis inside the right post. Espindolas goal was the 100th overall for the Red Bulls in the series against New England, which has not beaten New York on the road since 2007, a span of nine games.
