La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid suffered a huge blow to their chances of a first title in 18 years on Sunday as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat away to Levante.

Filipe Luis' own goal after just seven minutes got the Champions League finalists off to the worst possible start and they were then denied time and again by the inspired Keylor Navas in the Levante goal.

And in their push for an equaliser, Diego Simeone's men were caught on the counter-attack 21 minutes from time when David Barral slotted home from Victor Casadesus' cross.

Atletico will still be crowned champions if they win their remaining two games at home to Malaga and away to Barcelona on the last day of the season, but any more slip ups will allow Real Madrid the chance to take the title should they win their remaining four games.
