La Liga title race between Atletico and Real Madrid down to Matchday 38


La Liga Champions for this season are yet to be decided after Atletico and Real Madrid went to win in their last match.

Atletico Madrid escaped a defeat and took a step towards winning the title by fighting to beat Osasuna 2-1 at home on Sunday.

Atletico dominated the game in the first half but they fell behind in the 76th minute when a header from Ante Budimir crossed the line before Jan Oblak could save it.

They hit back with a finish from substitute Renan Lodi in the 82nd minute while top scorer Suarez completed the comeback by firing home from inside the area in the 88th.

Real Madrid also got a narrow 1-0 victory away from home against Athletic Club on Sunday.

In the first half, both teams saw several chances for a goal but none could utilize it. There was a chance of penalty for Madrid because of a handball but the referee seemed not interested.

Real were clearing lacking confidence in the pitch and the score at halftime was 0-0. In the second half Real was seen much confident and was the team with more possession and counter-attacks.

It was in the 68th minute the goal arrived from a corner. Rordygo took the ball down and passed it to Casemiro who found Nacho open at the far post who produced a classic defender finish with his knees.

With the only goal from Nacho, the game finished 1-0. Los Blancos took the title race to the last game of the season.

Currently, Atletico Madrid is on top with 83 points. Meanwhile, Real Madrid is second on the table two points behind Atletico.


The La Liga title race has finally reached its climax and the champions will be decided on the last matchday after both Atletico and Real Madrid got a hard-fought win against their opponents.

After finishing their matchday 37 with wins, both the top teams will be going with a mindset for another win in their last matchday this season.

Atletico Madrid will face Real Valladolid in their last match away on Saturday after their 2-1 victory against Osasuna and they will be going for a win against Valladolid to lay their hands on the league trophy.

Real Madrid will be hosting Villareal in their last match on Sunday after a narrow 1-0 victory against Athletic Club.

It will be a tough match for Real as Villareal is in good form after qualifying for Europa League final and thrashing Sevilla for 4-0 at home in their last match.
