La Liga Photo Special: Atletico Madrid & Luis Suarez clinch title on dramatic final day

Atletico Madrid clinched the LaLiga title for the 11th time in their history after a dramatic come from behind victory over Real Valladolid.

Atletico trailed to Oscar Plano's opener for Real Valladolid but they turned the match around in the second half through an Angel Correa goal and Luis Suarez's winner.

Atleti had gone into the game two points ahead of Real Madrid at the top of the table and were in danger of losing the title before Correa's intervention.

Although Real Madrid scored twice late on to beat Villarreal 2-1, they came up short as they needed Atletico to drop points.

It was hard on Valladolid, with defeat sending Ronaldo's club down into the Segunda Division.


Oscar Plano had given Valladolid hope with an early opener.
