La Liga goes to wire after Atletico, Barca draw

Atlético Madrid coach Diego Simeone
Atletico Madrid and Barcelona will play a La Liga title decider at the Nou Camp stadium next weekend after leaders Atletico drew 1-1 at home to Malaga and second-placed Barca were held to a 0-0 stalemate at Elche today.

Real Madrid, in third, dropped out of the title race when they suffered a surprise 2-0 loss at Celta Vigo that left them five points behind leaders Atletico with one game remaining.

After 37 games Atletico are top on 89 points, with Barca on 86 and Real, who were missing key players through injury at Celta including top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo, on 84.

If Barca beat Atletico next Sunday they will be champions as they would have a better head-to-head record after the title rivals drew 0-0 at the Calderon in Madrid in January.
