MADRID (AP) -- Atletico Madrid fans have gathered to celebrate their club's first domestic league title in 18 years.

Players from Atletico are on an open-top bus with "League Champions" written on the side and slowly making its way from Vicente Calderon Stadium to the capital's Neptune fountain, the club's traditional site for celebrating trophies.

Thousands of fans are lining the streets waving scarves and flags with the club's red-and-white colors.

Atletico won its first league title since 1996 on Saturday when it rallied to draw 1-1 at title rival Barcelona.
