Madrid won 1-0 at Valladolid on Saturday for its fourth consecutive win, while Atlético lost points for the second straight match in a 2-0 home loss against Levante that ended its 11-game unbeaten streak in the league.

The results left second-place Madrid within three points of Atlético, which remains with a game in hand but is starting to feel the heat. Third-place Barcelona can move within six points of Atlético if it beats struggling Cádiz at home on Sunday

— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) February 20, 2021 Casemiro scored with a 65th-minute header off a cross by Toni Kroos to give Madrid the win two rounds before it visits Atlético at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium

Madrid has been able to inch closer to the top despite playing without several key players recently because of injuries, including Karim Benzema, Sergio Ramos and Eden Hazard

None of them could play in Valladolid as Madrid withstood a few threats but was mostly in control against the hosts, which are winless in seven matches in all competitions and sit second-to-last in the 20-team standings

“It was a great team effort as we have some very important players sidelined,” said Casemiro, who had already come close to opening the scoring with two other headers. “We are still fighting for the league title. We know it’s difficult but there are still a lot of matches to be played.”

José Luis Morales scored in the 30th minute and Jorge de Frutos added another goal in stoppage time at the Metropolitano, handing Atlético its first league loss since December – and first at home in more than a year

Diego Simeone’s team has won only one of its last four league matches

“I'm not looking for excuses, we need to find solutions,” Simeone said. “It's natural that we will find difficulties along our path. There will be challenges.”

It was the second consecutive league match between Atlético and Levante. They drew 1-1 on Wednesday in a game postponed from the second round because of the coronavirus pandemic

Atlético had won nine of its last 11 league matches and hadn’t lost since a 1-0 defeat at Real Madrid in December. It had drawn two of its last three games, with setbacks against Levante and Celta Vigo. Atlético was eliminated by third-division club Cornellà in the second round of the Copa del Rey in January

— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) February 20, 2021 Losing unbeaten title

Atlético was unbeaten at home in the league in 22 matches, since a 1-0 loss to Barcelona in December 2019. It went 23 matches unbeaten at home between 2013 and 2014, when it last won the league

“We are the same team that made it to the lead, so we should be capable of holding on to it,” Atletico defender Mario Hermoso said. “These slumps are normal, we just have to hope that ours will end as soon as possible.”

Levante, which recently made it to the semifinals of the Copa del Rey for the first time in 86 years, hadn’t won in 14 games at Atletico in the league, with 13 losses and one draw. 

It had also won at Real Madrid four rounds ago after going winless in its last eight away matches. 

Levante hadn't won two away matches in a row in the league since 2018

It moved to eighth with Saturday's win, its first in four matches in all competitions

Atlético has a tough schedule ahead, hosting Chelsea in the round of 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday and playing Villarreal and Real Madrid in its next two Spanish league matches

It was the seventh straight game in which Atletico conceded a goal. It had scored in seven consecutive games in all competitions
