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

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

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

Atletico were not at their best and lacked their usual high intensity, possibly a result of tiredness after a grueling campaign and this week's Champions League semi-final against Chelsea, but inched their way closer to the title.

Diego Costa could have added to Atletico's lead after the break but Valencia also wasted good chances.
