LEVANTE DENT ATLETICO’S TITLE QUEST, JUVE WIN SCUDETTO

0

Atletico Madrid’s hopes of winning La Liga for the first time since 1996 took a blow on Sunday as Levante’s win gave renewed hope to Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The Champions League finalists trailed from the opening exchanges when left-back Felipe Luis deflected in Levante midfielder Pape Diop’s corner.

Atletico improved after the break but were beaten when Levante striker David Barral coolly struck from eight yards.

Atletico stay top and can secure the title by winning their final two games, reports the BBC.

And Juventus secured their third straight Italian title as nearest rivals Roma suffered a shock defeat at Catania.

Needing a win to keep their slim hopes alive, Roma fell 2-0 behind through captain Mariano Izco’s quickfire double for Serie A’s bottom side.

Roma skipper Francesco Totti halved the deficit before half-time, but Gonzalo Bergessio and Pablo Barrientos clinched Catania’s win after the break.

Defeat leaves Roma eight points behind Juventus with two matches remaining.

Now Antonio Conte’s men will celebrate their Scudetto success with a title-winning party in their home match against Atalanta on Monday.
