Barcelona's bid for a fifth La Liga title in six years suffered a surprise setback when they slumped to a 1-0 defeat at lowly Real Valladolid Saturday which opened the door for Real Madrid to pull away at the top. It was one of Barca's worst performances of the season, particularly during an atrocious first half when Juventus reject Fausto Rossi scored for the home side, and raised serious doubts about their form ahead of Wednesday's Champions League last 16, second leg at home to Manchester City.Barca slipped to third and Atletico Madrid climbed into provisional first place thanks to a 2-0 win at Celta Vigo when former Barca forward David Villa struck twice in two minutes to improve his chances of making Spain's World Cup squad.Barca's latest setback followed last month's defeats at home to Valencia and away at Real Sociedad and will give Manchester City hope they can overturn a 2-0 deficit in Wednesday's Champions League last 16, second leg at the Nou Camp.Betis have 18 points in 20th, five behind 19th-placed Rayo Vallecano, who play at Real Sociedad Monday.
