Yannick Carrasco and Angel Correa made a predominant first-half mean Atletico, who withdrew in the second and were left holding tight after Igor Zubeldia impacted in for Real with seven minutes left.
Diego Simeone ran up the passage at the Wanda Metropolitano after the match ended, punching the air as he went, completely mindful of how significant this outcome could demonstrate.
“We were great in the main half yet the enduring was superfluous whenever we had such countless possibilities,” Simeone said.
The victory makes Atletico Madrid 4 points clear of the second-placed Barcelona and further cement their title-winning aspirations.
Other matches too played in their favor with Barcelona drawing 3-3 with Levante and Real Madrid also dropping points against Sevilla.
The only 2 teams that are still practiced in the race to the title are Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid.
For Barcelona to win the league both Real and Atletico must lose all their remaining fixtures.
Barca must also win all its fixtures simultaneously, a far-fetched possibility.
Real Madrid wins if Atletico Madrid either draws or loses their remaining 2 games and Real win all their games.
For Atletico, a win would completely seal their title victory.
