Saturday's match between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid was a very rare event in La Liga. For the first time in more than half a century, the two top teams met on the final day with the title in the balance.

Alexis Sanchez got the scoring underway in the 34th minute with this absolute beauty(higher quality here):


Diego Godin equalised just after half-time, getting a head to this corner kick and coolly finishing to put Atletico in the driver's seat:


Lionel Messi appeared to reclaim the lead for Barcelona, but was correctly ruled offside, as recorded by @salonfootclub.

That would prove to be the last time Barcelona would put it in the net, as Atletico Madrid held on in a thrilling finish to be crowned La Liga champions.
