Atletico Madrid again etched Diego Simeone's name into their record books as they defeated Levante on Tuesday.
A vital victory in the chase for Champions League qualification represented a landmark for iconic head coach Simeone in LaLiga.
The 1-0 win - secured thanks to an early own goal - was Simeone's 194th in the league as Atleti boss, matching Luis Aragones' record haul.
After three consecutive triumphs following the resumption of football in Spain, the 2013-14 title-winning coach reached the total in his 319th LaLiga match.
Aragones - the club's record goalscorer as a player - had four stints as Atleti coach, winning LaLiga in 1976-77, but required 407 games to tally 194 top-flight wins.
Simeone will have the opportunity to claim top spot outright when his side host Deportivo Alaves on Saturday.
