Atletico Madrid missed the opportunity on Saturday to reach the top of the league by conceding a late equaliser to draw 1-1 away to neighbours Leganes.
French striker Antoine Griezmann had given to Diego Simeone’s side with a thrilling free kick in the 69th minute in a game played at the Butarque stadium.
But Leganes hit back when striker Guido Carillo threw a loose ball over the line in the 82nd minute, shortly after defender Rodrigo Tarin’s shot hit the crossbar.
Atletico has not been able to win their three games at Leganes since this team was promoted to the top flight for the first time in 2016, drawing 0-0 in their last two visits to Butarque.
Atletico finished second with 20 points, one point behind defending champion Barca, who visits Rayo Vallecano later on Saturday.
