Atletico Madrid stayed firmly on course for the Spanish football title as Raul Garcia's headed goal gave them a 1-0 away victory over Valencia.

The win took Atletico to a club record 88 points with three games left, six above second placed Real Madrid who beat Osasuna and still have a game in hand of their city rivals.

Barcelona, in mourning following the death of former coach Tito Vilanova, are away to Villarreal later and can move up to 84 points with a win.
