La Liga title hopers Atletico Madrid slashed leaders Barcelona’s massive nine point lead to just six after seeing off Celta Vigo 1-0 in a round 17 tie played on Saturday 22 December 2012 at the Vicente Calderon.
A lone goal from Adrian in the 77th minute is all that Atletico needed to claim all three points that moved the team’s tally from 17 rounds to 40 points.
Nail host Valladolid
Adrian’s goal on the other hand kept Celta Vigo at 15th spot in the 20-team log with a stagnated 15 points after being handed the tenth loss of the current season.
Further games will be played in the league on Saturday and Barcelona could restore the nine point cushion should the side nail host Valladolid in a game that kicks off at 2200hrs local time.
