The story of the La Liga season has been Atletico Madrid, who have been on a quest to win their first league title since 1996 and they did so in dramatic fashion. They had to get through Barcelona FC to claim the title and while they didn’t technically win, as the match ended in a 1-1 tie, Atletico Madrid only needed a draw to win the title and that’s exactly what they got.
Needless to say, fans on Twitter were more than ecstatic about the first La Liga title since 1996 going to Atletico Madrid.
Atletico Madrid !!! Well deserved after those injuries and the cheap move by barca giving them few fan slots. #LaLigaFinale
