Suarez seals LaLiga title for Atletico Madrid at Valladolid

Luis Suarez fired Atletico Madrid to the LaLiga title less than a year after being axed by Barcelona.

The Uruguayan scored the decisive goal as Diego Simeone’s men won 2-1 at Valladolid to be crowned champions.

Nearest rivals Real Madrid were the only team who could catch them going into the final day.

But Zinedine Zidane’s men failed to put up much of a fight until a dramatic late comeback at home to Europa League finalists Villarreal.

Yeremi Pino looked to have grabbed the only goal of the game but Karim Benzema grabbed an equaliser three minutes from time in what looks to be Zinedine Zidane’s final game in charge.

Luka Modric put Madrid 2-1 up in additional time but it was not enough for Los Blancos to prevent their neighbours from taking the crown.

Atletico were forced to come from behind themselves to earn a first championship for seven years and their 11th in total.

They trailed to Oscar Plano’s strike but turned the match around in what proved to be a dramatic second half through goals from Angel Correa and Suarez.

Los Colchoneros finished the campaign two points ahead of last year’s champions Real.

And it also ensured that Zidane’s men end a disappointing season without any silverware.
