Atletico Madrid win La Liga title after 18 years
Atletico Madrid were crowned La Liga champions last Saturday after coming from a goal down to draw 1-1 against Barcelona at Camp Nou.
Diego Godin’s second half header cancelled out Alexis Sanchez’s wonder-strike opener allowing Atletico to record the point they needed to remain on top and win their first league title since 1996.

Diego Simeone’s men suffered the loss of Diego Costa and Arda Turan through injury inside 22 minutes and things got even worse when Alexis Sanchez scored for Barcelona in the 34th.
But Atletico regrouped and emerged after the break to level the score through Diego Godin’s header following a corner from the right flank.
Despite Messi having a goal correctly rouled out for offside in the 64th minute, Barcelona never looked dangerous enough to break Atletico’s defensive display for the remaining of the match.
At the end, Barcelona fans gave Atletico a deserved standing ovation for being the best team of the season.
