90 in 90: Atletico Madrid 3 Valencia 2

By Michael McCann

A late rocket from Ángel Correa helped Atleti hold off Valencia in a five-goal thriller, delaying Barcelona’s title coronation.

Atleti had led early on through Alvaro Morata’s 6th league goal since joining from Chelsea on loan.

However, Kevin Gameiro finished off a well-worked Valencia equaliser before the break.

Antoine Griezmann headed Atleti infront just after half-time with his 21st this season.

Valencia equalised again when the video assistant referee spotted a handball from Saúl Ñíguez, and Daniel Parejo produced a perfect penalty.

Just three minutes later Correa’s beauty won it.
