Supporters on social media are ruthlessly targetting Spain's top flight after their league leaders convincingly lost to Chelsea, who currently occupy fourth place in the Premier League.
The next round of the Champions League will feature three sides from England while Spain will have just one representative in the shape of Real Madrid.
Barcelona were thrashed by Paris Saint-Germain with Borussia Dortmund knocking out Sevilla.
What does this say about the La Liga? Well, some people reckon it paints a bad picture for the league considering Atletico sit at the top.
After the Blues dumped Diego Simeone's team out of the competition, fans brutally called out the La Liga - labelling it as a 'farmer's league'.
Let's be honest, Leeds United would win the La liga with 100 points if they were in Spain. How is Atletico Madrid on top? Farmers League!!!

Spain held a stranglehold on the Champions League from 2014 to 2018 thanks to Real Madrid's dominance. Barcelona also won the 'Big Ears' during their rival's successful spell.
Though the last two winners have hailed from England (Liverpool) and Germany (Bayern Munich) with Spain pinning their hopes on Zinedine Zidane's outfit this term.
Defending champions Bayern and current Premier League leaders Manchester City are among the favourites to win this season's Champions League.
