LaLiga Goes Down To The Final Matchday As Both Madrid Clubs Win

The Spanish league title will be decided on the final fixture.

City clubs Real and Atletico won on Sunday to set up dramatic final day suspense. The city rivals are the only two real contenders for this season's title.

The Los Blancos found it hard to penetrate through Atletico's defense throughout the game. Finally, Real scored the only goal in the 68th minute through Nacho to keep their title hopes alive for the second time in a row.

Zinedine Zidane's men, who started the match in the second position, looked set to move at the top as Atletico were down a goal at their home ground against Osasuna after striker Ante Budimir scored in the 75th minute.
