Barcelona Congratulate Real Madrid
Through gritted tweet: Barcelona congratulate Champions League winners Real Madrid
Barcelona congratulated bitter La Liga rivals Real Madrid on successfully retaining the Champions League trophy.
No team had won titles back-to-back in the Champions League era but that changed on Saturday when the title holders defeated 10-man Juventus 4-1 in Cardiff.
Cristiano Ronaldo was the hero at the Principality Stadium, scoring twice to move a step closer to matching Lionel Messi’s record of five Ballons d’Or.
And Barca – albeit through gritted teeth – praised Madrid on social media, having also been dethroned by the Spanish capital club in LaLiga.
In a tweet, Barca wrote: “Congratulations @realmadrid for winning the trophy in Cardiff”.
