Barcelona crowned champions after Real Madrid draw

May 12, 2013 3:28 PM EST

Barcelona are the La Liga champions after Real Madrid drew away at Espanyol on Saturday.

If Madrid dropped any points at all in the fixture then they would hand the title over to their rivals in Catalonia and Jose Mourinho's men could only draw 1-1.


Even if Madrid had won, Barcelona could have wrapped up the title on Sunday with a win against Atletico Madrid, but that will not be necessary with the eight-point gap between the sides now too large given Real have just two games remaining.
