Gokdeniz Karadeniz got an eventful first half underway when he converted the rebound after Jose Salomon Rondon's effort had been saved by Sergio Asenjo.

Cristian Rodriguez, Arda Turan and Radamel Falcao all squandered chances for the hosts as they looked to react quickly.

Rubin's night took a turn for the worse on the stroke of half time when captain Roman Sharonov was dismissed for his second yellow card.

A quiet second half came alive in the 70th minute as Sergey Ryzhikov kept Turan's effort out with his legs moments before denying Falcao.

Falcao came as close as anyone to breaking the deadlock with 10 minutes left to play, but his drive rattled the crossbar.

Despite Atletico's pressure, the away side snatched a second goal in injury time through Pablo Orbaiz after Asenjo was left stranded following a corner at the other end.
