The “Los Blancos” prevailed 1-0 in the away game of the 24th round at Real Valladolid on Saturday evening, celebrated their third straight-to-zero victory and benefited from a surprising 2-0 home defeat by the leader against Levante. Atletico also has the advantage of having played one game less.
Casemiro headed the fourth real win en suite in the 65th minute after an ideal free-kick from Toni Kroos. Coach Zinedine Zidane was able to look forward to a successful dress rehearsal before the Champions League round of 16 first leg at Atalanta Bergamo on Wednesday.
For Atletico, however, it put a damper. As with the 1-1 in the supplement on Wednesday, Levante could not be defeated. This time goals from Jose Luis Morales (30th) and Jorge de Frutos (95th) were decisive. In the previous nine rounds, they had eight wins and one draw.
