Real Madrid lost 3-0 to Valencia on Saturday evening, giving Barcelona the chance to tie up the league title if they can win on Sunday. Mata opened the scoring against his old club after a quick passing move with just under half an hour on the clock, and Silva made it two just three minutes later with a long shot which Casillas couldn't prevent from entering the net. And Baraja scored a third with a spectacular volley midway through the second half to ensure that Unai Emery's side stay in fourth place for another week.
