Valencia - David Villa scored a late equaliser to help Valencia draw 2-2 at home to Atletico Madrid in an all-Spanish Europa League quarter-final first leg clash.

Both teams produced a thriller for the 55,000 crowd at the Mestalla.

Uruguay forward Diego Forlan broke the deadlock in the 59th minute for Atletico, tapping in after Sergio Aguero had done the hard work.

Manuel Fernandes quickly replied for Valencia with a long-range effort in the 67th but Atletico captain Antonio Lopez headed the visitors back in front five minutes later.

Villa, set to lead Spain's attack at the World Cup and scorer of a brilliant hat-trick in the previous round at Werder Bremen, swept home Vicente's cross in the 82nd to equalise.
