Status quo in the Champions League spots this weekend after the top four teams all drew, Atlético Madrid staying in third position after they were held to a 1-1 draw by sixth placed Valencia in the last game on Sunday evening. Both goals came early on, Jonas picking up a Joao Pereira cross to put the visitors ahead in the fifth minute, and Falcao getting on the end of Arda Turan's centre to equalise just a minute later. After that though the Ches had the better of the first half, Banega going close a couple of times, Guardado firing in a shot which hit his own man Valdez as it was going in, and Courtois making a double save from Piatti and Jonas shortly before the break. Eventually however Atleti rallied, and Diego Alves had to keep out a Gabi free kick and a charge by Diego Costa either side of half time. Later in the second half the visiting keeper had to save from a Godín header following a corner, and Raúl García tried his luck a couple of times. In the end though both teams settled for a point which keeps them on track for a return to Europe next season.
