Barça finally beaten at Atlético

FC Barcelona lost their unbeaten Liga record this term in a 2-1 defeat at Club Atlético de Madrid and now lead Real Madrid CF by just two points at the top of the table.

Club Atlético de Madrid inflicted FC Barcelona's first Liga defeat since May with a 2-1 victory at the Vicente Calderón which leaves the European champions just two points clear of title rivals Real Madrid CF.

Already shorn of several first-team regulars, Barça suffered another injury blow seven minutes in when Seydou Keita hobbled off with what appeared to be a hamstring problem. Things got worse two minutes later as José Antonio Reyes threaded a perfectly weighted pass in behind the visitors' defence for Diego Forlán to run on to and finish adroitly. Simão (23) then curled a sublime free-kick into the top corner and although Zlatan Ibrahimović (27) soon reduced the arrears with a volley at the far post, Josep Guardiola's team could find no way back.

Sevilla FC, meanwhile, leapfrogged RCD Mallorca – who play CD Tenerife on Monday – into fourth with a 1-0 home win against mid-table CA Osasuna thanks to Luis Fabiano's header ten minutes before half-time. RC Deportivo La Coruña could also have climbed above Mallorca, and to within a point of Sevilla, but lost 2-0 at RCD Espanyol, for whom Joan Verdú (39) and José María Callejón (59) were on target. Deportivo's Antonio Tomás was sent off after 55 minutes.

Elsewhere, lowly UD Almería drew 2-2 with Getafe CF courtesy of Fernando Soriano's added-time equaliser, while Málaga CF moved five points clear of the bottom three after winning 3-0 at Real Racing Club, who had Mohammed Tchité dismissed late on. Real Zaragoza played the final 25 minutes of a 1-1 draw at relegation rivals Real Valladolid CF with ten men after Ander Herrera was given his marching orders.
