Atletico Madrid claimed the La Liga title on the last day of the season at Camp Nou as they held Barcelona to a 1-1 draw in what was a thrilling end to tipsy topsy season in Spain. Diego Simeone’s men were in danger of losing the title when Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez gave the home side an unlikely lead with a thumping effort but the visitors evened things up with a sublime header from defender Diego Godin following a great corner kick.

Deigo Simeone’s men  had to earlier deal with two massive blows when Arda Turan and Diego Costa had to be taken off following injuries with the Madrid side fearing the worst before next week’s Champions League final in Lisbon. However Atletico held their clam and have now become the first team since Valencia in 2004 to break Barcelona and Real Madrid’s duopoly on the coveted Spanish premier Liga title.

The Los Rojiblancos have enjoyed an incredible season and the magnitude of this achievement would surely go down in the history books as one of the biggest in recent years, with the Madrid side having won their last title 18 years ago. Incidentally Diego Simeone was a player of the Atletico side that triumphed in 1996.

BBC Reports: Remarkable scenes inside the Nou Camp as almost 100,000 Barca supporters, plus around 500 Atletico fans, rise to their fight to salute Diego Simeone and his men.

This was how it all ended
