Atlético Madrid honored the club’s victims of the coronavirus pandemic and earned a hard-fought victory Saturday in its first home game since the Spanish league resumed.

Substitute Victor “Vitolo” Machín scored in the 81st minute as Atlético beat Valladolid 1-0. The victory lifted Diego Simeone’s team past Sevilla and into third place on head-to-head goal difference.

Barcelona leads the league by three points over Real Madrid, which can pull level if it wins at Real Sociedad on Sunday. Madrid holds the tiebreaker between the two in case of a tie. Atlético and Sevilla trail Barcelona by 13 points with eight games left.

Atlético used the occasion of its first match at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in more than three months to pay tribute to its former coach Radomir Antic, three former players, and a 14-year-old youth player who died during the pandemic.
