Though Real Madrid also came from behind to win 2-1 against Villareal, they could only move to 84 points which means the Diego Simeone-coached Atletico team won the La Liga title.
Naija News reports the Atletico victory is only the second time in 17 years that a team other than Barcelona or Real Madrid have won the title.
Atletico won the title back in 2014 also under coach Diego Simeone.
Meanwhile, Chelsea and Manchester City fans have been barred from traveling to Turkey to watch the Champions League final between the two clubs due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The announcement was made by British Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, after listing Turkey as a banned country due to the high number of cases in the country.
The most important match in Europe, which will be played in Istanbul on May 29, will be played on May 29 between the two main rivals.
