Real Madrid won’t lift La Liga title against Granada next weekend

Few clubs have done as well as Real Madrid in the La Liga this season, with the Los Blancos thriving under Carlo Ancelotti yet again. However, while Girona and Barcelona attempted to put up a title challenge, both sides fell apart and allowed the Los Blancos to sweep it through. That was helped by the fact that the club have lost just once all season and are unbeaten in the league since Gameweek 6.

That combined with Barcelona’s loss last weekend handed Real Madrid the league title as it meant that the gap between Ancelotti’s side and the rest was mathematically too big to overcome. Usually, that means that the club’s next match will see them lift the league title but that won’t happen. That isn’t the case in English football, where the trophy is presented in the final home game of the season.

Real Madrid not to lift La Liga title against Granada over sportsmanship

Reports had indicated that Real Madrid were considering postponing their trophy with Wionews reporting that the La Liga giants do plan on postponing it. The report has indicated that the Los Blancos squad and board has decided to respect Granada’s emotions on Saturday. The La Liga side could potentially be relegated should they lose to Real Madrid and the club have decided to respect that.

The decision to do so has gone down well with fans and critics alike praising Real Madrid’s reported decision to move their trophy celebration elsewhere. This comes in light of Barcelona refusing to do that a few years ago, and instead celebrating it as their opponents on the night got relegated which didn’t go down well with neutrals and critics alike.

The report has further indicated that the Los Blancos plan on having a private ceremony. But before that, Carlo Ancelotti’s side need to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-final, with the score level at 2-2.
