Atletico Madrid end season with 2-0 win over Real Sociedad

Atletico Madrid ended their LaLiga campaign with a 2-0 win at Real Sociedad on Saturday thanks to a first-half strike by Brazilian winger Samuel Lino and a Reinildo Mandava tap-in in stoppage time.

Atletico, who had already secured fourth place and a spot in next season's Champions League, finished the season on 76 points, 11 ahead Athletic Bilbao in fifth.

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.

Atletico 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 Atletico's keeper Jan Oblak made several saves and Atletico 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, Atletico 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. REUTERS
