Malaga 2 – Barcelona 0

Was this the result that confirmed Real Madrid as the La Liga 2016-17 champions?

After Los Blancos had dropped two points earlier in the day against Atletico, the door was wide open for Barcelona to close the gap on their chief rivals.

But Luis Enrique’s charges never took the opportunity, as their dreams of winning the title exploded in Malaga.

Goals from Sandro Ramirez & Jony

Malaga scored in both halves.

Sandro Ramirez fired the hosts into the lead on the half hour, while a late goal from Jony sealed the home win.

Neymar was sent off for Barcelona to compound a terrible day for the Catalans.
