MADRID, Spain -- Atletico Madrid and Barcelona set up a winner-takes-all decider for the Spanish league title after both teams drew on Sunday, while Real Madrid lost to see its slim title hopes end. Kenny Moore Jersey . Little-used defender Tobias Alderweireld headed home a corner kick for Atletico in the 74th minute to cancel out Samuel Garcias opener. Though Malaga finished with 10 men, Atletico failed to score a winner that would have secured a first league title in 18 years after Elche held Barcelona 0-0. Instead, Atletico travels to the Camp Nou next weekend for a dramatic finale to decide the champion. Atletico leads with 89 points, three better than Barcelona, which means a draw will be enough to pry the championship away from the defending champion, which must win to retain its title. "We still believe in this team. Were Atletico and were going to go there to win," Atletico captain Gabi Fernandez said. "Were used to playing in finals." Madrid, which has 84 points, limped out of the league race following a poor showing in Vigo, where a pair of turnovers allowed Charles to score both goals in a 2-0 win. Madrid faces Atletico in the Champions League final and played as if it was already looking ahead to Lisbon as defensive mistakes by Sergio Ramos and Xabi Alonso allowed Charles to net easily in each half. Cristiano Ronaldo was sidelined with an injury and Gareth Bale was on the bench, while Sami Khedira and Alvaro Arbeloa returned from long injuries to play. Atleticos attack looked disjointed early on without leading scorer Diego Costa, with replacement David Villa unable to finish three good scoring opportunities -- including early on when the Spain striker found the crossbar. Raul Garcia headed well wide with only Willy Caballero to beat, and the Malaga keeper made key stops from Villa and substitute Diego Ribas after the break. Thibaut Courtois rushed out to cut off Roque Santa Cruzs solo effort on the hour mark, but the Atletico goalkeepers mix-up with defender Miranda allowed Samuel Garcia to get free to head home the opener. With nerves starting to creep in, Alderweireld -- filling in for the suspended Diego Godin -- leapt high to head home a corner that allowed home fans to exhale. Marcos Angeleris second yellow card left Malaga with 10 men from the 88th, and Atletico pushed forward as Jose Sosas free kick narrowly missed the target before Caballero made a leaping finger-tip stop to Adrian Lopezs curling shot. "Its going to be an important game for the club," Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. "Weve reached the last round three points above Barcelona -- nobody would have believed we had a chance to win, but here we are, alive still." Barcelona, which counted itself out of the title race only eight days ago, came out at Elche with intention but eventually seemed to settle for its result when word of Malagas first goal arrived. Andres Iniesta volleyed a shot off the crossbar early on before goalkeeper Manu Herrera got a touch to Lionel Messis effort in the 38th to tip it around the far post. Herrera denied Messi again after the restart, but the defending champions barely threatened again. "Its going to be a great week ahead and for some of us it could be our last game with Barca so it would be a nice way to go out," Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano said. Atletico hasnt lost to Barcelona this season, drawing in four matches before finally beating the Catalans in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals. Two teams will join Real Betis in being relegated to the second division on the last day after Almeria and Getafe secured victories to improve their chances of staying up. Real Valladolid allowed Betis to rally back three times before eventually losing 4-3 to the last-place club. Almeria, which won 2-0 at Granada, and Getafe -- a 1-0 winner over Sevilla -- share 39 points. Granada has 38 points ahead of its finale at Valladolid, which is tied on 36 points with Osasuna in the final two drop places. Osasuna drew 1-1 at Espanyol. Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad drew 1-1 in a Basque derby. Kenny Moore Womens Jersey .

Those traits were clear to the 24,071 at Olympic Stadium on Saturday as the Impact dominated the scoring chances but settled for a 2-2 draw with the New York Red Bulls in a battle of still-winless Major League Soccer teams. WINNIPEG -- Mark Scheifele was sporting a split lip Thursday after the Winnipeg Jets took to the ice for the first time at camp this season. But the young forward is more than willing to shed a little blood if thats what it takes to make the team this season. "It caught me pretty good, dazed me for that shift, but I didnt want to be off the ice for too long," he said after practice, his lip still bleeding a little despite the plastic stitches holding it together. Scheifele has played 11 games with the Jets since he was drafted in 2011. The last two seasons he was sent back to the Barrie Colts, his junior team in the Ontario Hockey League. He was a major force for the Colts during the playoffs last spring but was injured for the last game and the Colts missed out on a berth in the Memorial Cup. The Jets know they need more offensive talent for a second and perhaps third line as they enter the more competitive Central Division and Western Conference under realignment. Last season, Winnipeg consistently fielded only one solid top-six line -- Blake Wheeler, Bryan Little and team captain Andrew Ladd. The Jets were unable to find the right mix to complement the obvious scoring talent of left-winger Evander Kane. The four of them still scored almost half of the 128 goals the Jets scored last season and had a combined total of 152 points. Olli Jokinen spent some time with Kane but failed to live up to the potential his statistics suggest is there. The Jets acquired Devin Setoguchi and Michael Frolik in the off-season to add more depth. Kane, Scheifele and Setoguchi lined up at times in a scrimmage Thursday but all know its too early to say how things would shake outt. Marvin Harrison Womens Jersey. "It was good, we made some nice plays, we won the hockey game," said Kane. "(But) you know it was just a camp scrimmage, so its tough to kind of see what happens unless you play an actual NHL game." Kane would no doubt like to see himself on a line that can rival the Wheeler, Little and Ladd trio. "I wouldnt say anxious, Im probably more on the excited part and hopeful we can find some chemistry and we can get things clicking early on," he said. "Two points in October is just as important as two points in April and thats kind of the mentality we have going into this season." Setoguchi said its way too early to predict where he might fit into the Winnipeg lineup. At 26, he has played 384 NHL games over four seasons with the San Jose Sharks and two with the Minnesota Wild. His best campaign was with San Jose in 2008-09, when he scored 31 goals and added 34 assists in 81 games. "I thought today was kind of a feeler day," he said. "The coaches they just wanted us to go out there and put in the work, kind of go through the systems a little bit and get used to it." Noel cant predict what will happen yet but he knows where he wants to be when camp ends. "Youd like to come out of training camp knowing the structure of your group, what youve got," he said. "Your two offensive lines, potentially your third, with some players possibly being able to play up ... "You want to be a position where you know what your special teams are going to be, whos killing penalties, whos on the power play ... You know that these things are subject to change with a lot of factors." ' ' '
