Canales was on the scene once again in the 68th minute to hit the equalizer - which was counted only after an extensive VAR review, although the officials could see that Carvajal was playing Canales onside, and thus the tally counted.

The free kick came from the edge of the box, with Ceballos firing a bender that swooped around the arguably poorly-placed wall to make it past Lopez and into the net.
