Radamel Falcao's goal gives Atletico Madrid a narrow 1-0 win at Sevilla in La Liga.

Atletico Madrid have kept the pressure on second-placed Real Madrid in La Liga with a narrow 1-0 win at Sevilla.

The victory has seen Atletico close the gap to three points on their rivals with six games remaining this season.

The decisive goal came on 76 minutes when Radamel Falcao was lurking in the penalty area to deflect Raul Garcia's thumping volley into the net.

Sevilla nearly nicked a point deep into added time, but Ivan Rakitic's free kick rattled the crossbar.
