Atletico Madrid are Spanish champions again, Saturday’s tense 2-1 win at Real Valladolid sealing the title seven years on from their only previous championship success under Diego Simeone.
Much like on that occasion, Atletico had to wait until the final day of the season to make absolutely sure of their triumph, something few would have predicted of their campaign not too long ago.
Simeone’s men have been top for much of the season, granted, but in recent months their position at the summit became precarious.
It’s fair to say they have ridden their luck over the past few weeks, including on Saturday as they had to come from behind at Valladolid, but their supporters will be fine with that after they eventually brought it home.
Following their title-clinching victory, we look back on the other matches that have been crucial in their success.
