MADRID, March 9 (Reuters) - Malaga were denied a morale-boosting victory ahead of Wednesday's Champions League showdown at home to Porto when they were held to a 1-1 draw at Real Valladolid in La Liga on Saturday.

Atletico Madrid moved back to within 12 points of Barcelona at the top of La Liga with a comfortable 3-0 win Sunday over Valladolid. Radamel Falcao got the visitors off to the perfect start with his 20th league goal of the season as he pounced from a yard after Dani Hernandez had made a fine save to deny Diego Godin. Diego Costa then made it 2-0 seven minutes into the second-half as he smashed home Koke's knockdown and Cristian Rodriguez rounded off a first away win in six league games for Diego Simeone's men in stoppage time.
