No one can believe Real Madrid gave Alvaro Arbeloa a better send off than Iker Casillas

The La Liga title race is now between two teams.

Atletico Madrid surprisingly conceded twice at Levante on Sunday in a result which means they can only watch on as Real Madrid and Barcelona battle it out for the La Liga title race on the final day.

Barcelona thrashed Espanyol 5-0 on Sunday and head to Granada next Sunday. Real Madrid beat Valencia at home 3-2 and play at Deportivo a week today.

The Catalans lead Los Blancos by one point and have a better head-to-head going into the final day.

One of the stand out features of the Real Madrid win on Sunday was the fine send off they gave to Alvaro Arbeloa.

The former Liverpool full back will not have his contract renewed at The Bernabeu and was greeted with a huge shirt by the Real Madrid support in the stands on Sunday.

Arbeloa came on for the final 11 minutes of the game, replacing Cristiano Ronaldo and also received the bumps from his team mates after the game.

Whilst we can understand that Arbeloa is a popular figure at Real Madrid, where he has been a true defender of the shirt, both on the pitch and social media, many have wondered why Iker Casillas got such a poor send off in comparison.

One of the stand out goalkeepers in Real Madrid’s history was forced to hold his own farewell press conference and was ushered out the door by Los Blancos.

Politics. Obviously. Real Madrid can be a funny place.
