The entire La Liga season comes down to one game today to decide who will be crowned champions of the 2013/14 season. Atletico Madrid, who have had an incredible season under manager Diego Simeone, need only a draw or a victory to break the Barcelona-Real Madrid monopoly.

  1. Too bad this game is on at the same time as the FA Cup final. I’m taping this one and will watch it after the FA Cup which I’ll watch live.

  2. Neymar and Xavi injured or just dropped? I would have dropped Xavi but kept Neymar.

    On the bright side wont have to watch Neymar roll around like a baby.

  3. Brilliant game so far. Sanchez’s goal was out of this world. And the header by Godin was superb.

  4. This athletico team is very hard to beat well organised team with fantastic manager. Three minutes away from glory which they deserve it

  5. Well done to athletico madrid champions of spain ending the monopoly of the big two. The championsleague w’ll follow even with out costa if they play like that lisbon belongs to them
