Today Barcelona Vs Real Madrid At 7:45pm: Real Madrid send La Liga title message to Barcelona as Sergio Ramos makes major admission
REAL MADRID have congratulated Barcelona after their bitter rivals won their 25th La Liga title.
Barcelona only needed a draw against Deportivo but courtesy of a Lionel Messi hat-trick won 4-2 on Sunday. It was a maiden title for Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde, who joined the club last summer.
Madrid have faltered badly in the league this season, trailing 15 points behind.
But in a classy move, Madrid have congratulated Barcelona on their successful domestic season.
They tweeted: “Congratulations to @FCBarcelona for winning LaLiga and the Copa del Rey this season.”
Barcelona’s first match as champions is against Real Madrid next Saturday.

The question of whether Madrid will form a guard of honour for Barcelona at the Nou Camp has caused controversy in Spain.
Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has insisted he doesn’t expect his players to perform the mark of respect to Barcelona.
And captain Sergio Ramos has echoed those sentiments saying: “Barcelona have had a great year, they have won two titles.
“Winning the Copa del Rey has its merits and LaLiga even more so. Winning the Champions League has that extra merit that is equivalent to those two, or even more.
“For me, that would be two very great seasons: theirs and ours.
“What [Zinedine] Zidane says is gospel. We are giving this too much fuss. They have the title, which is what they wanted.
“There will be no guard of honour. Period.
“They want to enjoy their title and the same for us and ours, we need to eliminate the Germans and to reach another final.”
