MADRID (AP) — Atlético Madrid held on as leader of the Spanish league by holding Barcelona to 0-0 at the Camp Nou Stadium on Saturday.
Atlético remained two points in front of Barcelona with three rounds to go, still in position to win its first league title since 2014.
Atlético can be surpassed on Sunday if defending champion Real Madrid defeats Sevilla at home. Madrid is three points behind Atlético but would take the lead because it holds the head-to-head tiebreaker against its city rival.
Sevilla was seven points behind Atlético and remained a title contender.
