Espanyol 1-1 Real Madrid: Mediocre Merengues hand Barcelona Liga title
Real Madrid conceded the Liga championship to Barcelona after failing to beat the Catalan team's city rival Espanyol in a 1-1 draw at the Cornella-El Prat. With one eye on the Copa del Rey final, Jose Mourinho named a weakened side and it fell behind to los Periquitos midway through the first half when Christian Stuani broke the deadlock. Gonzalo Higuain equalized before the hour mark but Madrid failed to turn possession into goals, leaving with just one point and thus gifting the title to Barca.
