It's time to say our farewells. Barcelona show no sign of throwing it away at the top while Atletico are doing their best to keep Spain's title race alive. Many thanks for your company. Until next time...
- Barcelona 8 points clear at the top
- Atletico Madrid second in the table
- Gary Neville's Valencia finish with 10 men
Valencia started the day ninth in the table but slip to 11th on a night to forget for Gary Neville.
So, Diego Simeone's men have won five out of six in the league since losing to Barcelona on 30 January. Barca - eight points ahead with 10 games left - remain firm favourites to secure another title. But Atletico's performance suggests they are not going to roll over for the Catalans.
Jeers greet the final whistle. The natives are restless again. For Valencia it's six defeats in 14 La Liga games under Gary Neville. For Atletico Madrid their fight for the title goes on.
Valencia's three La Liga wins under Gary Neville have all come against teams in the bottom half of the table. They will be desperately disappointed not to get something from this but individual errors have proved costly.
Three minutes of additional time.
Valencia don't have much time to recover from this - they are in Europa League action against La Liga rivals Athletic Bilbao on Thursday.
Atletico's third goal sparks a rush for the exits. Valencia's fans have seen enough. This has been a night to forget for Gary Neville. His side have shot themselves in the foot - big time.
Oh dear. More comical goalkeeping from Diego Alves puts the game out of Valencia's reach. The Brazil keeper looks embarrassed as Yannick Carrasco shoots straight at him - and allows it to go between his legs into the net. Terrible.
Surely it's game over for Valencia now. Defender Anderlan Santos, already on a yellow, hauls down Fernando Torres. Santos troops off without looking at Gary Neville. If looks could kill...
So close to a third goal for Atletico as Yannick Carrasco fires just wide. Atletico have the momentum.
As it stands Atletico have cut Barcelona's lead at the top to eight points. There are 10 games remaining after this. The door is still open for Atletico. Just.
What a story. Fernando Torres, who has only just come on, revives Atletico's title hopes after stabbing home inside the six yard area when Valencia failed to deal with a corner. Diego Simeone does a jig on the sidelines.
Those black and white plastic flags are being waved with great enthusiasm. The mood in the Mestalla has changed after the recent wins. You wouldn't bet against them from nicking this. It's on a knife edge.
Atletico have around 25 minutes to find a goal otherwise the race for the La Liga title race is as good as over. Step forward Fernando Torres. The former Liverpool striker is on the pitch after replacing Matias Kranevitter.
I've just seen another replay of Alves' save - it gets better and better. A real moment of quality by the Valencia stopper who somehow manages to push the ball onto his bar.
That could be a big moment in this title race.
Outstanding save by Diego Alves who makes up for his earlier error with a brilliant one-handed diving stop to keep out Luciano Vietto's powerful close range volley. Atletico can't believe they are not ahead.
First yellow card of the game goes to Valencia's Aderlan Santos for a sliding tackle from behind.
New shirt for Luciano Vietto. The Atletico forward almost has it ripped from him by Guilherme Siqueira's ridiculously high challenge which goes unpunished. Vietto walks away with a huge rip in the back of his top.
Gabi's radar is all wrong as the Atletico captain lets fly from about 20 yards. This half hasn't got going yet.
Favourite football paybacks...
Alex Johnson: Could there be a better payback than Ranieri's Leicester beating Mourinho's Chelsea to get him sacked?
Katie Rogers: Not sure if it's official pa back but England beating Germany 5-1 was pretty satisfying for me.
Koke gallops into the Valencia box and looks set to get a shot away when a white shirt appears from nowhere to hoof the ball all out of play.
Did Valencia fans have to pay for those black and white plastic flags? There's lots of them - and I mean lots. They're certainly adding to the atmosphere inside the famous Mestalla which is in excellent voice.
A huge 45 minutes coming up for Atletico. We're back under way.
Your favourite football paybacks...
Julian Mains: Ultimate payback...Liverpool selling Torres to Chelsea for £50m, Payback for every defeat Chelsea inflicted on Liverpool.
Ehiogie Endurance: Barcelona eliminating Jose Mourinho-led Real Madrid in the semi final of the Champions League after being eliminated by Jose's Inter team.
Alex: I want Valencia to score a 90th minute winner just to see what Gary Neville will do to celebrate.
Neville's first-pumping goal celebration is proving a big talking point.
Decent game. Barcelona will be delighted if it stays like this.
Will Diego Simeone be sharing a glass of red after this with Gary Neville? The events at the 1998 World Cup when David Beckham was sent off for fouling Argentina's Simeone live in the memory of England fans. Simeone does not look particularly happy with his side. His side started well enough but it's Valencia who are finishing the half strongly after being behind for just a few minutes.
Jonathan Boyle: I hope Neville is given the time to sign his own players - will be fascinating to see what players he will attempt to sign.
On-loan Real Madrid forward Denis Cheryshev is turning into a shrewd loan signing for Valencia - and he's definitely making his presence felt against Atletico. The Russian goes so close to putting his side ahead with a fierce first time effort after a clever pass by Paco Alcacer.
This is like a cup tie - defending has gone out of the window and it's end to end. Atletico Madrid know a draw will not do if they are to have a realistic chance of catching Barcelona.
Rabin: Gary Neville's touchline emotion after the goal was simply intoxicating. More than Klop-like
Jake Beer: I hope Gary Neville gets the win today, I hope to see him manage in the Premier League one day.
Luciano Vietto ripples Valencia's side netting from inside the area after a quickly taken free-kick. He should have done better. Vietto has had enough chances to claim the match ball.
Gary Neville's reaction was almost as entertaining as the goal itself. The former Manchester United defender leapt out of his dugout and repeatedly first pumped the air. No one can accuse Neville of not showing his emotions.
Brilliant equaliser by Valencia as Paco Alcacer's cushion header tees-up Denis Cheryshev to arrow home from just inside the area. Cheryshev, who is on loan from Real Madrid, certainly enjoyed that.
What a shocker by Diego Alves as the Valencia keeper lets a hopeful 30 yard effort by Antoine Griezmann slip under his outstretched body and into the back of the net. There was no Valencia defenders near Griezmann when he went for goal - Gary Neville looks angry.
Matías Kranevitter lets fly from distance and it's heading for the net before it cannons off the leg of a Valencia shirt. Atletico are looking more and more dangerous. Diego Alves makes heavy work of keeping out a tame effort by Antoine Griezmann before Luciano Vietto lashes another effort from inside the area over the bar.
Valencia's players appeal for offside as the ball bobbles to Luciano Vietto inside the home area but the officials wave play on before the Atletico man lashes over the bar. That was a decent chance.
Atletico know they have to deliver in the Mestalla otherwise their hopes of the domestic and Champions League double are all but gone. They have started with purpose but keeper Diego Alves remains untroubled. Quiet start.
Atletico are beginning to stamp their authority. Antoine Griezmann is allowed to charge forward unchallenged before a wayward pass brings a promising move to an abrupt end. Gary Neville is in deep conversation with his assistants. He won't like the way his defenders backed off the dangerous Griezmann.
