Atlético claim 11th La Liga title

Atlético claim eleventh La Liga title thanks to Suárez's second-half goal

The Uruguayan striker made the most out of a mistake by Valladolid's defense to score the title-winning goal for Los Colchoneros.

Atlético Madrid have been crowned as La Liga champions in one of the craziest ends of the Spanish league in recent times. After holding a 14-point lead over the second place at one pont of the season, Los Colchoneros dropped key points throughout the season to keep the title race alive. Today, Simeone's men did their homework and took the win against Valladolid, helping the red and white side to their eleventh title in the Spanish top-tier.

Atlético Madrid needed to win their game to keep themselves away from any problems, but they conceded an early goal by Oscar Plano that complicated things for them. Elsewhere, Real Madrid had also conceded a goal against Villarreal, and as if fate wanted to keep things interesting, Angel Correa's equalizer in this game came moments after Los Blancos had a goal disallowed. When Real Madrid leveled their game, Luis Suárez gave Los Colchoneros a lead they would not lose with a left-footed strike, which will eventually be remembered as the cherry on top of a great season for Simeone's squad.

As stated earlier, Luis Suárez was key for Atlético's title this season just months after being shown the exit door by Barcelona. If you wonder why Atlético went all in to sign Suárez, here are a few numbers that will enlighten you on how relevant the Uruguayan was for them to claim the title.

Things turned around for Atlético once Diego Simeone joined them in 2011. Why? Have a look!

El Cholo has also joined an elite list of coaches with this title for Los Colchoneros.

An incredible season in La Liga has come to an end, and all we can say is congratulations to Atlético Madrid after their well-deserved title win. Have a look at the goal that sealed the title for Los Colchoneros (Image might be geo-restricted).
