ALMERIA, Spain — Forward Thievy Bifouma scored one goal and forced a sending off as Almeria erased a two-goal deficit to draw 2-2 against Celta Vigo on Monday in a Spanish league match both sides finished with 10 men.

Celta dominated the match early and went ahead 2-0 by halftime on goals from Manuel "Nolito" Agudo and Santi Mina.

But Bifouma pulled one back in the 47th and drew a red card for Gustavo Cabral in the 54th.

Jonathan Zongo leveled for Almeria in the 68th, but the hosts' push for a winner was derailed when Mauro Dos Santos earned his second yellow card in the 74th.

Celta's Augusto Fernandez almost grabbed a stoppage-time winner when his header hit the post.

Almeria inched two points away from the relegation zone with three rounds remaining, while Celta remained in ninth place.
