Barcelona 3 – Leganes 1
Another weekend, another three points for Barcelona.
Will the Catalans win La Liga and the Champions League this season?
The Catalans have looked a shoo-in for the Spanish title for several months, and on Saturday they beat Leganes 3-1.
The star of the show was Leo Messi once again. The Argentine superstar scored a hat-trick in the win.
Zinedine Zidane: Real Madrid’s guard of honour
Last week, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane confirmed that Los Blancos will not form a guard of honour for Barcelona in the next Clasico.
It’s tradition in Spain for the La Liga rivals to acknowledge the achievements of the other once the title has been won.
But Zidane has no intention of continue that convention this season at the Camp Nou on May 6. He said:
I don’t know how much you are going to ask me but my response is very clear.
It is my decision and that is it.
I don’t understand the guard of honour and it won’t take place, although we are far from the end of the season.
Real Madrid take on Atletico in the derby on Sunday.
Gerard Pique trolls Zidane
After the Leganes match, Barca centre-half Gerard Pique was asked about Zidane’s comments.
Pique flashed a broad smile as he brushed aside the guard of honour controversy with a sarcastic comment:
I’m not going to sleep tonight!
