FC Barcelona won 1-0 (1-0) against Atlético Madrid, three points ahead of Real Madrid in the Spanish league, who lost to Villarreal on Saturday.

French international Ousmane Dembélé scored the goal in the 22nd minute.

In the final stages, Atlético's Stefan Savić and Barcelona's Ferrán Torres saw the red card after a scuffle (90th +2nd minute of the game).

After the bankruptcy, Atlético finally says goodbye to the race for the championship.

Coach Diego Simeone's side are now 14 points adrift of FC Barcelona, ​​who clinched the win without suspended striker Robert Lewandowski, who has two more games to play.

Barcelona were the better team early on and Dembélé took the lead after a spectacular dribble from Pedri and then a combination through Gavi.

After that, the Catalans struggled.

Atlético was always dangerous, especially with high balls, José Maria Giménez just missed the head (34th).

Shortly before the break, the German international goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen made a strong save against Antoine Griezmann (43').

In the second half, the game became increasingly rough.

Barcelona resorted to counterattacks but rarely got through.

Atletico played without ideas for a long time.

Neither team was able to create real scoring chances in the top game.

In added time it got heated again.

Atlético's Stefan Savić and Barcelona's Ferrán Torres fought a fierce off-field scuffle and both were sent off as a result.

Griezmann then missed his team's best chance when all he had to do was push the ball over the line after a cross pass, but defender Ronald Araújo shot it (90' + 5').
