He may have been a biter but he is a fighter now he is a league champion once again. Luis Suarez accepted the gift wrapped in a colorful wrapping from VALLADOLID ‘s Guardiola to score the winner in the second half. If you want something done right you better damn well do it yourself,the away side did just that not waiting for favors from Villarreal who were facing Real Madrid at the same time at the Alfredo di Stefano.
It took a while for Atleti to get going after a disjointed first half. The home side took the lead after breaking up an attack on 17 minutes and countering with pace. Plano found himself outpacing the Atleti defence to score putting the cats amongst the pigeons. The key to the Atleti win was scoring just after half time calming their nerves fairly quickly. Correa’s nifty footwork setting up the toe poke finish. Atleti are champions of Spain once again for the first time in 7 years. To show how crucial it was to get the job done themselves here this. Real Madrid were 1-0 down until 87 minutes when Karim Benzema equalized. Just when the final whistle in VALLADOLID was sounding, Modric had scored the winner for Real. Fine margins.
