Real Madrid ratified their 34th league title with a 2-1 win over Villarreal at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium on Thursday.
They came seven points ahead of Barcelona as the latter suffered a blowing defeat from Osasuna. Real Madrid secured 86 points while Barcelona was condemned to 79 points. Lionel Messi scored the only goal against their rival Osasuna who scored two goals. Barcelona tumbled to second place left with only one match to play this season.
Messi who is known for his suave attitude, uttered his frustration with the game overall and his dissatisfaction with the training. Reflecting upon themselves he said,”An inconsistent, weak team that is beaten in intensity and enthusiasm.” Osasuna advanced as Jose Arnaiz hurled the ball on his right foot at the bottom left corner in the 15th minute.
Messi recuperated it with a free kick past goalkeeper Sergio Herrera. Luis Suarez came as a substitute in the second half and was about to rough up a goal with a pass from Messi but the goal was marked offside .
Osaauna’s Gallego got a red card in the 78th minute for an elbow to Clement Lenglet but Barcelona could not utilise this advantage. As their chance to win in the fag, Torres snatched their opportunity during the stoppage time as the defence flattened.
