A La Liga championship can only be won through struggle. Titles only come with sacrifice, talent and a dose of good luck.

Atlético Madrid know exactly what it takes and throw themselves, heart and soul, into every game because every point is worth its weight in gold, especially when you are fighting against two heavyweights that have the advantage both in terms of budget and of firepower.

It took just this sort of spirit for the ‘Colchoneros’ to pull up level with Barcelona at the top of the league table having won out in a tough showdown against a brilliant Athletic. Aymeric Laporte opened the scoring for the Lions, but Saul and Antoine Griezmann managed to claw it back for Diego Simeone’s men.

Athletic were the better side throughout the game. Ernesto Valverde’s men were not intimidated by the Calderón and proved more than a match for Simeone’s outfit, who tried to mark their territory by overpowering the visitors.

Atlético’s greatest talent, Griezmann, pulled a goal out of the hat with the scores standing at 1-1 and the crowd beginning to lose hope. A superb shot from the Frenchman zipped in past a futile dive from Gorka Iraizoz, a desperate effort launched after the ball had already found its mark.
