Osasuna Victory over gave Real Madrid the League
Osasuna shocked Barcelona yesternight as they beat them 2-1 and gifted Real Madrid the league title, Barca captain Lionel Messi after the game said: “things have to change” at the club as they lost their La Liga title on the night their 30-game unbeaten home run in the league came to an end.
A win over Osasuna in the game have not been enough to stop Real Madrid from lifting the trophy as they also beat Villarreal 2-1. Jose Arnaiz put Osasuna ahead before Messi levelled with a free-kick. The visitors had Enric Gallego sent off for elbowing Clement Lenglet before Roberto Torres’ close-range winner.
Messi, who is La Liga’s top scorer this season with 23 goals with one game to go, said: “We didn’t expect to finish in this way, but it sums up the year for us. “We are a weak team who can be beaten with enough intensity and enthusiasm. “We have lost a lot of points which we shouldn’t have done. We have been very inconsistent.
“We need to be self-critical, starting with the players, but also across the entire club. We are Barcelona, and we are obliged to win every game.” Osasuna beating Barca gifted Real Madrid the title and now the only hope of a major trophy in the Champions League. They will be hosting Napoli in the last 16-second leg on Saturday, 8 August, having drawn 1-1 in Italy.
