BARCELONA, Spain - Ramon Azeez's last-gasp goal gave 10-man Almeria a 3-2 win at home over relegated Real Betis on Sunday to help pull his team out of the Spanish league's drop zone.
Azeez was left completely unmarked in the heart of the area to head home Fernando Soriano's cross four minutes into injury time, provoking a small group of Almeria fans to invade the pitch.
Almeria struck first in the 52nd when Aleix Vidal found Oscar Diaz at the far post, but Jesus "Suso" Fernandez saw a direct red card for a dangerous tackle on Damien Perquis one minute later.
Betis took the lead through goals by Braian Rodriguez in the 60th and Salva Sevilla in the 71st.
Vidal hit back for Almeria on the break in the 77th before Soriano set up the late winner from Azeez.
"They went ahead and when we were about to flop, our character and toughness emerged," Soriano said. "Our fans never give up and that is contagious."
Almeria climbed to one point above the relegation zone, pushing Osasuna down to join Valladolid as the other two teams currently in danger to join Betis in the second division next season.
