Ronaldo fires Real to first title since 2012 with win at Malaga

Madrid were crowned champions of Spain for the first time since 2012 after defeating Malaga 2-0 on Sunday.

There have also been some pundits, especially in Catalonia, questioning whether Malaga coach Michel, an ex-Madrid player, might be happy to see his old side seeing off Barca's challenge to claim the title. Despite Lionel Messi and Barcelona's late minute rally in their game against Eibar, Cristiano Ronaldo's team was too much.

Barcelona were awarded a penalty to level the game but in an evening of odd circumstances Lionel Messi saw his spot kick parried away.

Pontus Aberg's goal puts Predators past Ducks 3-1 in Game 5
Fisher missed his first game of his scoreless postseason with an undisclosed injury after taking a hit to the head in Game 4. Rinne, who shut out the Blackhawks twice in Chicago to open this postseason, played arguably his best game yet.

Messi atoned by converting another spot-kick and added his 37th LaLiga goal of the season with a fine solo run and finish in stoppage time.

"I don't know if everyone wants us to lose, but many do", he said. We have had a great season.

The French coach hailed Real Madrid's remarkable strength in depth as the key to his side entering their final game of the season at Malaga. "We fought until the very end and now we congratulate a worthy champion". Ronaldo scored twice and Madrid won the game 4-1.

Fernando Torres scored two goals early in the first half and Angel Correa added another in the second as the hosts said goodbye to the stadium where it has played for the last 50 years. It's been 50 years of a lot of happiness in this venue.

The almost 55,000 fans who packed the Calderon stayed at the stadium long after the final whistle on Sunday as the team organized a series of tributes for the occasion.

Cornell released five solo records and toured Australia in 2015 with a string of shows off the back of the album, Higher Truth . According to BBC, Cornell died soon after performing at a concert with Soundgarden in Detroit on Wednesday evening.

Next Saturday's Copa del Rey final at the Vicente Calderon will be his last match as the club's manager before his contract expires in June, but this served as his goodbye to the home supporters.

While Barca have hit a rich vein of form following their thrilling 3-2 Clasico triumph at the Santiago Bernabeu last month, stumbles have been unusually frequent in Luis Enrique's final season in charge.

Madrid took eight points from top-four opponents, yet Barca failed to win a third successive title due to surprise slip-ups against Alaves, Celta Vigo, Deportivo La Coruna and Malaga, all of whom were swatted aside by Real Madrid.

That match will have ramifications for the only issue yet to be resolved as Villarreal, Athletic and Real Sociedad battle for two Europa League places.
