BARCELONA, Spain -- Almeria fought back for a 2-1 win at nine-man Espanyol on Sunday to keep alive its hopes of staying in Spain's first division.

Espanyol went ahead at Cornella-El Prat Stadium when Christian Stuani headed in Sergio Garcia's cross in the 42nd minute.

But the game swung in Almeria's favour when Stuani was dismissed with a second yellow card three minutes after halftime.

Midfielder Francisco Velez headed in Miguel Corona's corner kick in the 69th to mark his debut in the top flight and start Almeria's comeback.

Three minutes later Jesus "Suso" Fernandez curled in a free kick to break Almeria's four-game losing streak.

Espanyol's Javi Lopez earned a red card in stoppage time for fouling Jonathan Zongo with only the goalkeeper to beat.

Almeria is two points from safety.
