It’s been a long season for FC Barcelona but it finally came to an end this Saturday evening, with the most anticipated Spanish league final fixture against Atletico Madrid. The picked tagline for this encounter could have been “the winner takes it all”, but the truth is that a draw would also favor Atletico and that’s precisely what happened after 90 minutes of football played in the Camp Nou.

Barça and Atletico Madrid ended up finishing their domestic campaign with a thrilling 1-1 draw, in a game where Neymar has finally returned to the pitches, even if for only 30 minutes. The Brazil international started the match on the bench, but would replace Pedro Rodríguez around the 15th minute of the second half, by the time we already had one goal scored for each side.

Things didn’t start that bad for the hosts, who reached the opening goal around the 33rd minute, thanks to a fantastic strike from Alexis Sánchez. After seeing Lionel Messi chesting down a high ball that had been sent into Atletico‘s box, the Chile international didn’t seem to bother with the fact that the ball was still bouncing when he fired a true rocket straight into the top left corner of Courtois‘ goal. Spectacular strike and Barça was at that moment on the top of the Spanish League table…

The Blaugrana‘s advantage was held until half-time, but the truth is that it wouldn’t last much longer than that. In the 4th minute of the second half and following a corner-kick earned on their right attacking side, Atletico made use of one of their strongest weapons through this season, which was to score from set-pieces. Gabi took the corner-kick and sent the ball across the box towards the far post and then it basically was all about Diego Godín. The Uruguay international rose in the air and headed the ball just as it says in the textbooks, leaving barely no chance whatsoever to Pinto. The 1-1 score line was now favoring the visitors and Barça had to go after a second goal in the remaining minutes of the game.

However and as we’ve seen in numerous occasions this year, Atletico Madrid defended like true Spartans and never really allowed for Barcelona to create much danger. The match ended with the 1-1 draw and with Atletico Madrid celebrating their 10th Spanish League title in the club’s history, the first since the 1995-96 season.
