MADRID, Spain -- Atletico Madrid and Barcelona set up a winner-takes-all decider for the Spanish league title after both teams drew on Sunday, while Real Madrid lost to see its slim title hopes end. Little-used defender Tobias Alderweireld headed home a corner kick for Atletico in the 74th minute to cancel out Samuel Garcias opener. Though Malaga finished with 10 men, Atletico failed to score a winner that would have secured a first league title in 18 years after Elche held Barcelona 0-0. Instead, Atletico travels to the Camp Nou next weekend for a dramatic finale to decide the champion. Atletico leads with 89 points, three better than Barcelona, which means a draw will be enough to pry the championship away from the defending champion, which must win to retain its title. "We still believe in this team. Were Atletico and were going to go there to win," Atletico captain Gabi Fernandez said. "Were used to playing in finals." Madrid, which has 84 points, limped out of the league race following a poor showing in Vigo, where a pair of turnovers allowed Charles to score both goals in a 2-0 win. Madrid faces Atletico in the Champions League final and played as if it was already looking ahead to Lisbon as defensive mistakes by Sergio Ramos and Xabi Alonso allowed Charles to net easily in each half. Cristiano Ronaldo was sidelined with an injury and Gareth Bale was on the bench, while Sami Khedira and Alvaro Arbeloa returned from long injuries to play. Atleticos attack looked disjointed early on without leading scorer Diego Costa, with replacement David Villa unable to finish three good scoring opportunities -- including early on when the Spain striker found the crossbar. Raul Garcia headed well wide with only Willy Caballero to beat, and the Malaga keeper made key stops from Villa and substitute Diego Ribas after the break. Thibaut Courtois rushed out to cut off Roque Santa Cruzs solo effort on the hour mark, but the Atletico goalkeepers mix-up with defender Miranda allowed Samuel Garcia to get free to head home the opener. With nerves starting to creep in, Alderweireld -- filling in for the suspended Diego Godin -- leapt high to head home a corner that allowed home fans to exhale. Marcos Angeleris second yellow card left Malaga with 10 men from the 88th, and Atletico pushed forward as Jose Sosas free kick narrowly missed the target before Caballero made a leaping finger-tip stop to Adrian Lopezs curling shot. "Its going to be an important game for the club," Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. "Weve reached the last round three points above Barcelona -- nobody would have believed we had a chance to win, but here we are, alive still." Barcelona, which counted itself out of the title race only eight days ago, came out at Elche with intention but eventually seemed to settle for its result when word of Malagas first goal arrived. Andres Iniesta volleyed a shot off the crossbar early on before goalkeeper Manu Herrera got a touch to Lionel Messis effort in the 38th to tip it around the far post. Herrera denied Messi again after the restart, but the defending champions barely threatened again. "Its going to be a great week ahead and for some of us it could be our last game with Barca so it would be a nice way to go out," Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano said. Atletico hasnt lost to Barcelona this season, drawing in four matches before finally beating the Catalans in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals. Two teams will join Real Betis in being relegated to the second division on the last day after Almeria and Getafe secured victories to improve their chances of staying up. Real Valladolid allowed Betis to rally back three times before eventually losing 4-3 to the last-place club. Almeria, which won 2-0 at Granada, and Getafe -- a 1-0 winner over Sevilla -- share 39 points. Granada has 38 points ahead of its finale at Valladolid, which is tied on 36 points with Osasuna in the final two drop places. Osasuna drew 1-1 at Espanyol. Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad drew 1-1 in a Basque derby. ED Belfour Blackhawks Jersey . The Manchester giants dipped into their reserves for a second game in three days and produced disjointed displays that were rescued by second-half winners. Edin Dzekos 66th-minute goal maintained Citys record of scoring in every home game in more than three years -- a run of 60 matches -- and lifted the team two points above Arsenal, which plays Newcastle on Sunday.
