Atletico Madrid was forced to settle with a point at home to Malaga on Sunday, as Diego Simeone's side missed the opportunity to claim the league title ahead of La Liga's final day next weekend.

After falling behind midway through the second half, an anxious home side drew level through Toby Alderweireld's header in the 74th minute.

As momentum grew around the Vicente Calderon, Los Rojiblancos surged forward in search of the decisive goal but were denied by Bernd Schuster's gallant outfit.

The eventual 1-1 draw was an enormous opportunity missed for Atletico, given that Real Madrid's loss to Celta Vigo and Barcelona's draw at Elche meant La Liga's leaders could have captured their first league triumph since 1995-96 with a victory.

Across the following slides, we examine six things that we learned from Sunday's encounter.
