On paper, Valencia vs. Atletico Madrid looked like a match that could have a large bearing on the Primera Division title race. It was the second-hardest fixture of Atletico’s run-in, at a stadium where they were last victorious back in 2003, as per Mundo Deportivo (in Spanish).

Atletico proved equal to the test, putting in a strong defensive performance to win, 1-0, thanks to Raul Garcia’s late first-half goal.

Valencia struggled to create any chances of particular note despite putting their visitors under pressure for much of the second half, eventually succumbing to a second defeat in three days following Thursday’s Europa League loss to Sevilla.
