Atletico and Barcelona set up what will be the La Liga title decider on the final day of the La Liga season after both sides only managed a share of the points.

Real Madrid’s hopes were ended when they were beaten 2-0 by Celta Vigo, ending Carlo Ancelotti’s hopes of a historic treble.

A win for Atletico over Malaga would have secured them the title however it was Malaga that found the back of the net first up when Samuel fired home the advantage for the visitors but the hosts battled back to equalize through a tally in the 74th minute by Toby Alderweireld.

Barcelona failed to secure 3 points when they were held to an unlikely goalless draw against lowly Elche.

Atletico remain top on 89 points with Barca on 86 an outright win next week enough to give the Catalan giants another title.
