Athletico remain unbeaten, Malaga secure a point

Updated: September 24, 2012

In-form Atletico Madrid made it five wins in a row in all competitions when Diego Godin and Radamel Falcao struck in a 2-1 win at home to Real Valladolid.

The win lifted Diego Simeone’s side to fourth on 10 points from four matches, one behind Real Mallorca and Malaga, who have played one game more.

Mallorca inflicted further pain on struggling Valencia when they beat them 2-0 at the Iberostar Estadi before Malaga were held to a 0-0 stalemate at Athletic Bilbao.

Champions Real Madrid, who have taken only four points from their opening four outings, were due to play at city rivals Rayo Vallecano in Sunday’s late kickoff but their game was abandoned due to floodlight failure.
