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. On a day of nerve-jangling tension, when Atletico came desperately close to a late goal that would have clinched the championship, Real Madrid dropped out of the title race when they suffered a surprise 2-0 loss at Celta Vigo that left them five points behind their city rivals with one game remaining.
Goals either side of half-time from Samir Nasri and Vincent Kompany saw City capture the title with an easy victory. Manuel Pellegrini’s side led second-place Liverpool by only two points heading into the match. But their sizeable goal difference meant a draw against West Ham at Etihad Stadium would be enough to take their second title in three seasons.

The usual crest has been replaced with the Milan(o) flag of red cross on white background in a shield style, and the more familiar version appears as a watermark in the bottom right quadrant.
