FULL TIME: Real Valladolid 1-2 Atletico Madrid
ATLETICO MADRID ARE LA LIGA CHAMPIONS 2020/21!
Late Real Madrid goal! Another goal at Valdebebas and Modric has scored it! Real Madrid are winning against Villarreal and it's now crucial that Atleti hold on for the final few seconds!
It's very nearly time for Atletico Madrid to celebrate. They are just one minute away from their first La Liga title since 2014! What an achievement this will be for Simeone and his players!
Chance for Guardiola! That was an opportunity for Real Valladolid to at least make things interesting in these final few minutes, but Guardiola puts his shot well over the bar!
There will be three minutes of stoppage time played at the end of the match.
Real Madrid equaliser! Some drama at the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano as Benzema has finally found the back of the net for Real Madrid. It's 1-1 against Villarreal. They couldn't, could they?
Correa has enjoyed an exceptional season for Atletico Madrid. The Argentine has come up with some big moments for his side, just like today with that crucial equaliser for 1-1.
A change for Atletico Madrid as Herrera replaces Correa. Edging closer to the title!
What has made this season’s Spanish title race so interesting is that all four teams involved are hugely flawed. Atleti, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Sevilla all have their weaknesses.
Simeone said in an interview before kick off that his team “will give their lives” to get this title triumph over the line this season. The Atletico Madrid manager wasn’t lying about that!
In a strange way Atletico Madrid have found themselves in their comfort zone over the last few weeks, having to grind out results under pressure. That’s what they do best.
Llorente has been a revelation for Atletico Madrid this season. What a transformation the former defender midfielder has undergone over the last 12 months or so. Remarkable.
A change for Atleti as Kondogbia comes on to shore things up in the centre of the pitch.
Of course, it wasn’t so long ago that Atletico Madrid held a commanding lead at the top of the La Liga table. Their advantage was in the double digits until they started to drop points.
Chance for Carrasco! There was space on the break for Atletico Madrid with Suarez playing the pass to Carrasco, but the Belgian lashes his strike over the bar! He should have hit the target!
PICTURE: 21 league goals this season for Suarez!
Trippier has enjoyed another successful season in Spain. However, the right back has just one year left on his Atletico Madrid contract and has been linked with a return to England.
While Simeone’s side have played some more expansive, attractive stuff this season, Atletico Madrid are still among the best at grinding out results when they need them most.
The goal that seals it?
A reminder that Villarreal are still beating Real Madrid at Valdebebas. With 20 minutes left of this match, and of the season, it's looking very good for Simeone and his players.
El Yamiq becomes the second Real Valladolid player to pick up a yellow card.
Suarez had 40 yards to race through on goal. He could have lost his composure, he has so much time to think about the finish, but there was never any doubt he would find the net!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Valladolid 1 Atletico Madrid 2 (67 mins - Luis Suarez). SUAREZ! Is that the goal that seals the title for Atletico Madrid? Guardiola gave up the ball inside his own half giving Suarez the chance to race through on goal, but the Uruguyan kept his cool and finished into the back of the net!
A second change for the home side and Jota is on for Real Valladolid.
... and Felix is also on off the bench for Atleti. Saul is hooked.
Simeone has also taken the chance to make a change with Lodi on for Hermoso...
Changes about to be made by the home side. Guardiola has been introduced...
Big chance! That could been a second goal for Real Valladolid! Olaza's shot from distance was saved by Oblak, Weissman reacted first, but he heads the rebound over the top!
Incredible drama on the final day of the 2020/21 La Liga season. Atletico Madrid look like a different team all of a sudden. They aren't sitting back. They want to find the second.
As things stand... Atletico Madrid are on 84 points at the top of La Liga with Real Madrid on 81 points. There's still 30 minutes to be played in both games, though! A long way to go!
Real Madrid goal disallowed! There was a very lengthy VAR check after the Benzema equaliser and that Real Madrid goal has been disallowed for offside! What a dramatic few minutes!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Valladolid 1 Atletico Madrid 1 (57 mins - Angel Correa). A HUGE goal for Atleti! They are back on level terms! It was barely a chance for Correa on the edge of the Real Valladolid box, but he toe-pokes the finish into the back of the net from 20 yards out! Atletico Madrid have equalised!
Real Madrid goal! Bad news for Atletico Madrid! Benzema has equalised for Real Madrid against Villarreal! It's now 1-1 at Valdebebas! This title race is far from over! What drama!
A yellow card for Marcos Andre. Not sure what for. Dissent?
This has been a lively start to the second half. This time Hermoso gets his head on the end of a freekick from Koke, but he heads wide. Lots of crosses being played into the box.
Gimenez was up! Correa's corner kick was cleared back to the Argentine, his second delivery was better, but Gimenez could only head powerfully over the target! Decent opportunity!
Suarez scored his 20th goal of the season in the crucial win over Osasuna last weekend. The former Barcelona striker has given Atleti some much-needed cutting edge this season, but he’s not had many chances here!
Carrasco has been in exceptional form for Atletico Madrid recently. The Belgian changed the game against Osasuna, producing the assist for Suarez to net a winner in the 89th minute. Atleti need Carrasco here!
Suarez header! Llorente burst down the right side, crossed into the middle, Suarez peeled away to head on goal, but his effort was cleared in the six-yard area! Good chance!
Atletico Madrid have some work to do in this second half. They were very poor in the first half. One of the biggest concerns for Simeone will be how little they have created!
The second half is under way! Real Valladolid have a 1-0 lead over Atletico Madrid in this La Liga fixture.
HALF TIME: Real Valladolid 1-0 Atletico Madrid. Plano's goal is the difference between the two teams at the break and Simeone has some work to do ahead of the second half.
There will be one minute of stoppage time played at the end of the first half.
Simeone looks very restless on the touchline. Even more so than is usually the case. Might the Atletico Madrid manager be tempted into making a change at the interval?
It's all a bit manic from Atletico Madrid at the moment. Might it be wise for Simeone to tell his players that Real Madrid are also losing to calm them down a little bit? Could work.
This has been a pretty messy first half performance by Atletico Madrid. They have seen plenty of the ball, but their place in the final third of the pitch has been too careless.
Atletico Madrid look nervous every time they have to do some defending, which isn't like them. Real Valladolid have had a couple chances to score a second. Simeone needs better.
Weissman with the header! That was a good opportunity for Real Valladolid to double their advantage, but Weissman could only direct his free header at Oblak! He saves well.
Atletico Madrid left it late to get the job done against Osasuna. Simeone will want his side to be much more clinical in front of goal than they were last weekend when they had 15 shots!
Over the top! Koke swings a corner kick into the box, Felipe gets up higher than anyone else to direct a header on goal, but he guides his effort over the target. Might have done better.
SUAREZ... just wide! Carrasco carried the ball forward at his feet, was fouled, but play was allowed to continue. The pass was fed to Suarez, but his left-footed shot drifts just wide of the far post!
Elche have scored! Bad news for Real Valladolid as Elche have taken the need against Athletic Club! They need Elche to lose if they are to stand any chance of staying up.
Atletico Madrid need Koke to take a grip of things in the centre of the pitch. If he can do that, the away side will stand a very good chance of claiming all three points. He’s so crucial.
Almost an own goal! Inches away from being a calamitious own goal! El Yamiq got his head on the end of a Trippier cross into the middle and the ball lands in the side netting. Got away with it.
PICTURE: Atleti have work to do!
Janko down the right! While Atletico Madrid are seeing plenty of the ball, Real Valladolid are having a lot of joy on the rapid counter attack. There's a lot of space to exploit!
This season’s La Liga title race has been one of the most compelling in recent memory. Until recently, Barcelona and Sevilla were also in contention to finish top of the pile in Spain.
Saul square pass! Just for a moment it looked like Saul was about to square for Suarez to have the simple finish into the back of the net, but Real Valladolid make the clearance!
Villarreal have scored! Incredible drama in this final day of the La Liga season! Pino has found the back of the net for Villarreal away to Real Madrid! Good news for Atletico Madrid!
As things stand... Atletico Madrid still have a single point lead at the top of La Liga as Real Madrid are drawing at home to Villarreal. I'm sure word is being fed to Valdebebas!
Well, well, well. That was NOT in the script! Or was it? Atletico Madrid have a habit of making things difficult for themselves and now they will have to come from behind again!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Valladolid 1 (18 mins - Oscar Plano) Atletico Madrid 0. Disaster for Atleti! There's an opening goal and it's gone the way of Real Valladolid! The Atletico Madrid defence was missing as the hosts came flying forward on the break and Plano raced clear to find the back of the net at the near post!
Elsewhere, Real Madrid are at home to Villarreal. We’ll keep you up to date with what’s happening in that one. Dropped points for Atletico Madrid could open the door to their rivals.
It’s also a massive game for Real Valladolid. They have won just one of their last 20 matches and need to win here to give themselves any chance of avoiding the drop at the foot of the table.
Atletico Madrid on top at the moment. Saul attempts to head down a cross inside the area, but the home side make the clearance. Real Valladolid having to do some defending.
Atletico Madrid come into this match on the back of a comeback victory against Osasuna which saw the capital club score twice in the last 10 minutes to claim three points.
Oblak is tested! Villa cuts the ball on to his right foot and gets the low shot away on goal, but the Atletico Madrid goalkeeper was never going to be troubled by that and he saves.
Chance for Suarez! The angle was tight for the Atletico Madrid striker on the volley, but he flashes his strike across the face of goal and wide of the far post! The visitors are pushing!
Llorente steps on the ankle of Mesa, but that was accidental from the Atletico Madrid midfielder and he escapes a booking. It was a sore one for the Valladolid player, though.
The away side have started this match on the front foot. Atletico Madrid are keen to get this done as quickly as possible and spare themselves any nerves towards the end of the match.
What sort of match will we get this evening? It’s all on the line for Atletico Madrid. Win this last match of the season Simeone’s side will be Spanish champions for the first time since 2014.
Suarez in behind! The Atletico Madrid striker was released through, but the shot was blocked and the flag was eventually raised for offside. Good recovery from El Yamiq, there.
The match is under way! It's Real Valladolid against Atletico Madrid in this La Liga fixture!
Okay, here we go. We are about to get under in this crucial final day match! Kick off is coming up shortly!
The title will be won or lost here. And relegation will either be suffered or survived. All on the line!
Not long until kick off. This is a huge day in the modern history of Atletico Madrid. Will this be their day?
I'm Graham Ruthven and you can catch me on Twitter ahead of the match. Do you reckon Atletico Madrid are going to get the job done here? Tweet me - @grahamruthven!
There's just two points between Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga and Real Madrid in second place. Real Madrid have the advantage when it comes to the head-to-head record.
It all comes down to this for Atletico Madrid. They are one win away from their first Spanish title since 2014. Can they get the job done? Or will they open the door for Real Madrid on the final day of the season?
One change for Atleti! Savic is suspended for Atletico Madrid this evening and so Simeone's one change from the team that beat Osasuna is to pick Gimenez to play at the back.
It all comes down to today for Atleti!
