BARCELONA, Spain -- Real Sociedad came back to win 2-1 at Sevilla and Valencia beat Getafe 1-0 on Saturday as both teams remained locked on points in their fight for a fourth-place finish in the Spanish league. Sociedad remained ahead of fifth-place Valencia on head-to-head goal difference and in control of Spains last Champions League spot with two rounds to go. The Basque side fell behind 10 minutes in at Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium when Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic slotted in a back pass from Geoffrey Kondogbia. But Rakitics own goal when he headed a free kick into his teams net in the 16th levelled the score, and striker Imanol Agirretxe swept in Carlos Martinezs lobbed pass to give Sociedad the lead for good in the 24th with his 13th goal of the season. Both sides created several chances in the second half, but neither could finish them off. Sevillas Jose Antonio Reyes was dismissed after halftime with a direct red card for protesting a decision by the line judge while warming up on the sideline. "Were happy because its very hard to win here," said Sociedad coach Philippe Montanier. "In their previous nine home games only Atletico (Madrid) had won here. It was a tough game. We played well in the first half, and then in the second we tried to sit farther back and score on the break. But we had difficulties with their set pieces and had to hold on until the end." Valencia outplayed Getafe throughout but only edged past the hosts thanks to Jeremy Mathieus first-half goal. Mathieu scored with a deft volley off a pass from Ever Banega in the 44th, firing the ball into the net from outside the area. Getafe never threatened to draw at its Alfonso Perez Coliseum, with goalkeeper Miguel Moya saving the hosts from a heavier defeat. Valencia coach Ernesto Valverde, who after taking over has led the team up the table to challenge for a berth in Europes top-tier competition, played coy when asked if he was any closer to extending his contract past this season. "I dont know if Im going to have a meeting next week (with the club)," Valverde said. "The most important thing now is the game against Granada. If I speak or not with the club could be interesting to the general public, (but) if I consider that transmitting knowledge of it would hurt the team I wont say anything." Elsewhere, Granada went a long way toward ensuring its third straight season in the first division by rolling over 10-man Osasuna 3-0 after Brazilian defender Siqueira set up one goal and scored another. Siqueira passed for unmarked striker Youssef El Arabi to poke the ball under goalkeeper Andres Fernandez for Granadas first goal in the 23rd. He then converted a penalty kick in the "Panenka" chipped style in the 80th after Fernando "Nano" Macedo was sent off when he fouled Yacine Brahimi from behind with only the goalie to beat. Diego Buonanotte added the hosts third goal in stoppage time. Granada stayed undefeated in five consecutive games and rose seven points clear of the relegation zone, while Osasuna was left four points above the drop before three of the four teams below it in the standings play this round. On Sunday, new league champion Barcelona plays Valladolid without injured top scorer Lionel Messi. Barcelona can match Real Madrids record haul of 100 points from last season if it wins its remaining three matches. Also on Sunday, its: Levante vs. Rayo Vallecano, Real Zaragoza vs. Athletic Bilbao, and Deportivo La Coruna vs. Espanyol. Last-place Mallorca hosts Real Betis on Monday. Madrid, Atletico, Malaga, and Celta Vigo already played their fixtures for this round last week to make room in the calendar for the Copa del Rey final on Friday, when Atletico beat Madrid 2-1 in extra time for its 10th cup. Atletico celebrated its first win over its crosstown rivals in 26 matches dating back to 1999 with a parade through the Spanish capital on Saturday. In the second division, Elche earned promotion on Saturday after Alcorcon drew 1-1 at Barcelona B. Kemoko Turay Jersey

Johnson, listed first on the depth chart at his position, was injured on a running play Tuesday. He dropped immediately to ground and rolled over on his back before medical personnel arrived within 1 minute and put an air cast on his left leg. "I dont know the extent of the injury, but when we have concrete information we will get it out," Atlanta coach Mike Smith said after practice. "Right now we cant speculate. We hope Mike is going to be fine." The Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals were practicing together for the second straight day. Both teams will be missing some starters when Atlanta hosts Cincinnati in Thursdays preseason opener. Falcons receiver Julio Jones has sore hamstrings and linebacker Sean Weatherspoon is sidelined indefinitely with a dislocated left finger that resulted in an open wound. Jones was limited in practice, but Weatherspoon stayed inside to get treatment. Receiver A.J. Green has a bruised knee and left tackle Andrew Whitworth a sore knee following arthroscopic surgery for Cincinnati. Reserve receiver Andrew Hawkins is out, too, with a sore ankle. Smith and his staff plan to keep nine offensive linemen on the 53-man roster, but if JJohnsons injury is serious and requires season-ending surgery, Lamar Holmes and Ryan Schraeder are the likely candidates to earn the job.dddddddddddd Johnson was supposed to replace Tyson Clabo, who was cut last spring to create salary cap space and signed with Miami. The Falcons moved Johnson, a career guard, out to tackle to fill the void, but he did not have much experience. He started one of his 16 games last year -- in a formation with three tight ends -- and was limited to two games in his first two years because of injuries and difficulty in making the game-day roster. Johnson was a third-round pick from Alabama in 2010. A foot stress fracture limited Holmes, a third-round draft pick last year from Southern Mississippi, to one game as a rookie. Holmes believes Johnsons situation wont affect the offensive lines unity. "Its all positive spirits," Holmes said. "We really cant speak on anything right now because we really dont know yet." Schraeder joined the Falcons in April as an undrafted rookie free agent from Valdosta State. "When youre out there in the heat of fire, you dont really think about that," Schraeder said. "I just think about my job and what Ive got to do to make the run the offence smoothly. Every day is a learning process, and hopefully I can keep moving in the right direction."
