A point will do for Madrid. Barca have to hope Madrid lose.

It ain't going to happen although I still remember (nobody in Spain has ever forgotten and both Míchel and Valdano are at war of words right now over it) when Real Madrid lost two leagues in a row on the final day of the season where the met Tenerife away on both occasions and lost.  It ain't gonna happen but boy would that be hilarious.

As @SirBalon said, it isn't going to happen. My new nickname for Real Madrid would have to be 'PSG' if they let it slip now.

I'm simply looking forward to a great game and performance to end off the Liga season against Eibar and sign Luis Enrique off in his final match at the Camp Nou in style.

Actually in my view it's laughable that they haven't managed to do it before the last game of the season.  Mourinho beat a much much better Barça side the season he won La Liga although both those Barcelona sides do have one thing in common which is losing a few ridiculous games that they would never lose with hindsight.

I said a while back even before the Clásico victory for Barça, that if Real lost La Liga this season it would be the most embarrassing event ever in the history of Spanish football even more than those two titles Real lost on the last day (two years in a row against the same side) to Tenerife handing the title to Barcelona.  This would be much much worse and Real should've wrapped it up a long while ago.  The reason they haven't is because they've actually been mediocre themselves (the table never lies) and people seem to have forgotten this.

There is no way in hell Real Madrid are losing to Málaga tomorrow!  NO WAY!  It isn't going to happen, infact it's not allowed to happen even in a celestial sense.  Málaga (this Málaga) have nothing to offer this Madrid side unless tomorrow the referee goes absolutely mental against the side from the capital.

Zidane: "Many don't want Real Madrid to win but we don't care"

 

In today's pre-match press conference in Málaga Zinedine Zidane thought it was going to be the usual rhetoric of questions asked on the possible selection for tomorrow's all important game which could mean Real Madrid winning their second La Liga title in 9 years.  It was far from that and due to the polls being run all over the the media and the different tv channels asking people in the street all over the country on who people preferred to win La Liga, the results were overwhelming with people not caring who won it but as long as it wasn't Real Madrid.  Zidane was quite perplexed with those questions (I agree with him as it's not down to him to think about that type of stuff) he answered this:

"We know there are many that don't want us to win La Liga, but this is nothing new because it's always been like this.  Maybe the situation has become more acute in recent times, but we don't care and we can only try an win our games to meet our objectives."

There were other quotes regarding the game when the journalists gave way but this is what's made the headlines and will be in tomorrow's sports newspapers.  To be honest I feel sorry for Zidane because one thing you have to give him is that he's always maintained his composure and has never lost his mannerisms even when all those questionable refereeing decisions were happening earlier on in the season.  He never got aggravated like for example Luis Enrique at Barcelona does...  The Barça coach hates the media and every press conference turns into a war with him showing a grimace on his face.  Today was the first time (as we can see in the picture above) where we observed Zidane being uncomfortable with the situation in front of the media.  Even so, he maintained himself, answered the questions and carried on.

The truth is that Real Madrid hasn't been so unpopular in Spain since time can remember.  Traditionally Real was most people's second team many years ago due to their famed "Señorío" (gentlemanly conduct) in general.  But this has long been lost.

Early goal from CM and Barcelona conceding one means that it looks like RM will take the title.

This Eibar game typifies our season tbh. At this rate we might lose the title by 6 points and that's more than simply ref issues, as terrible as they have been.

I'm glad that penalty was missed.  That awarding of that penalty was disgusting and obscene.

The Alba penalty was astonishing :4_joy: 

Looks like we'll at least get the win to end the season and send Luis Enrique off in his final match at the Camp Nou then.

Don't worry, @Cannabis will tell you that the refs only care about helping RM win. Haha, this league is a joke at times.

The important stuff happened when it mattered and not what's happened today.  That's opportunism and ridiculous.

Haha, okay. If you don't see the hypocrisy, I can't help you on that. 

It's over in Malaga. RM are the champs. Congrats :congrats:

Anyone noticed all the Real Madrid fans look like the fatties in the movie W.A.L.L.E.

I don't need any help with that.  Don't tell me about Spanish football unless you've seen every game like I won't about Serie 'A'. ;)

I know you're joking but you haven't watched the whole of this season. I won't say anymore because I've been into it over and over. 

Great goal by Messi too and congratulations to Real Madrid, always nice to see a small underdog team top the table. Shades of Leicester.

Half joking, but I've seen enough that again, if you were a supporter of Celta or Malaga, then I would understand your beef. But Barca get royal treatment just as much as RM.

Not saying I have seen every game, but Barca get all the calls as well. It appears that in the league, unless you are from RM, Barca, Atletico, then you won't get the calls. 

That's just how it seems.

agree with this. 

Happy for Zidane too as admired him when he was playing the game. 

As for the Barca/Real corrupt thing - both as bad as each other.

Simply my point. 

I am absolutely happy for Zidane though, despite him trying to break Marco's chest, I can't help but respect the guy.

Congratulations to Real Madrid. I hate them but I can't deny that they deserve this title success or that they have been the best team this season. The the strength in depth of their squad is just amazing. 

Of course given the money that they've spent and the squad that they've had at their disposal, plus the fact that they enjoy a lot of unfair advantages over 18 out of the other 19 teams in the league, it's disgraceful that they went 5 years without winning the title in the first place :D .

Euro for euro and cent for cent, Alavés have definitely had the most impressive league season. After getting promoted and with a squad that cost about 5.5 million euros to put together, they comfortably finished in the top half of the table (9th) and have a Copa Del Rey final to look forward to.

Congratulations to Zinedine Zidane, I must say. A Champions League and a La Liga title in just over a year of being a coach is phenomenal.

Happy with the result today for Luis Enrique. He deserved this send off with a home win for everything he's given FC Barcelona as a player, youth coach and head coach of the first team. Another coach that gave the club a memorable treble which isn't easy and why only select clubs have managed it.

It's the rise of the club after the calming of the storm in Spain as a whole and one man called Johan Cruyff that turned history in Spanish football. Everything Barça have achieved since then with two trebles and everything else dominating Spanish football since then is something that just giving the Cruyff name to a stadium and a main road in the city isn't enough. But what can you do anyway! Nothing would ever be enough.

Barça may not have won La Liga this season but in their worst season for years they still managed to take it to the final day... But there are important lessons to be learned from this season and the way recruitment was executed last summer... Hindsight is something that can now be used to learn these lessons because the end of the season is upon us.

I'm sure Barça will be back stronger than ever next season as they were the last time Real won La Liga some years back or when Atleti won it three years ago.

VISCA BARÇA!!!

I know cheating is accepted and encouraged at Barcelona but fucking hell, just saw the "fouls" that lead to the penalties. Weren't even touched. The officials seriously must either be blind or corrupt.
