Sixth-placed Real Sociedad have qualified for the Europa League.

Runaway champions Real Madrid are top of the standings on 94 points, 12 points ahead second-placed Barcelona and 13 clear of Girona in third.

Atlético took the lead in the ninth minute after Marcos Llorente burst up the right wing and delivered a low cross to Lino at the far post, who netted with a tidy finish past Alex Remiro.

Remiro and Atlético's keeper Jan Oblak made several saves and Atlético were reduced to 10-men after Saul Niguez was shown a second yellow card in the 92nd minute.

In the last move of the match, Atlético secured the three points on a counter attack led by Alvaro Morata, who delivered a perfectly placed cross for substitute Reinildo to tap in to the empty net.
