Real rule Liga and party deep into the night

Real Madrid joined their fans to celebrate winning La Liga after a 2-0 victory over Malaga.

Thousands packed streets as the Madridistas partied deep into the night.

The victory marked their 33rd Spanish league title, the first in five years:“It’s the best I’m really happy, very very happy. It was a great match and the goalkeeper Navas played really well so I am very happy.”

Arch-rivals Barcelona had to settle for second place despite victory in coach Luis Enrique’s final home match.

The Barca fans tried to be philosophical:
“I don’t think Madrid won, I think Barca lost; because Barca won against all the big teams, but we failed against the smaller teams. I think that Madrid deserves it they are the champions, but we gave the league as a present.”

The Catalans will now have an anxious summer as their club prepares to announce a new coach.
