Barcelona 1 - 1 Getafe

Barcelona's impressive run of league wins stopped at nine as Getafe snatched a 1-1 draw at Camp Nou on Sunday as the league leaders allowed champions Real Madrid to make up ground in the title race. Barca are now three points ahead of Real at the top and it could have been just two had Mali international Seydou Keita not weighed in with a 71st minute equaliser to cancel out Manu del Moral's opener.

Moral curled in a 19th minute opener to shock the home crowd, who were hoping for a 10th straight league win, and Barca looked to be heading for their first home defeat of the season. But former Sevilla team-mates Dani Alves and Keita, who joined Barca in the summer, combined for an equaliser and both Samuel Eto'o and Gerard Pique hit the crossbar for the hosts.

The absence of Argentine Lionel Messi through a thigh strain did not help Barca's cause and it is uncertain whether he will be fit for Wednesday's UEFA Champions League match at Sporting Lisbon. Barcelona have already qualified for the knockout stages but are keen to go through as group winners.

Numancia 1 - 1 Atletico Madrid

Earlier a stoppage time penalty from Jose Barkero left Atletico Madrid frustrated as the capital club dropped two vital points in a 1-1 draw at Numancia.
Atletico were poised to close to within four points of Valencia and Sevilla, fifth and sixth respectively, after a sixth goal of the season from Uruguayan international Diego Forlan but Mariano Pernia gave away a late penalty and Barkero cooly slotted home. Atletico's rivals Villarreal, Sevilla and Valencia had dropped valuable points but the draw means they failed to capitalise and Javier Aguirre's team stay six points off fifth-placed Sevilla.

The UEFA Champions League is next for Atletico on Wednesday with Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven the opponents. Atletico are joint top of Champions League group D with Liverpool on eight points but the home match against PSV will be played behind closed doors as UEFA punish Atletico for crowd trouble in their group match against Marseille at the Vicente Calderon..
