The Clasico had a wonderful finish. Barcelona players and fans united for a few minutes for a party at the Santiago Bernabeu, with the players going over to their corner of the stadium and celebrating on the pitch while the supporters chanted.
Of course Gerard Pique was the master of ceremonies. He shouted to his team-mates to join the fans in the corner, not just thanking for their support but chanting with them.
Along with Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba was another to show he delight, and it was rare to see Leo Messi so happy and expressive too. The satisfaction of winning and returning Ramos’s physical blows with football helped too.
The title is not won yet and they could not go mad, but they sent a message out with their celebration, all while keeping things in moderation - with the likes of Alena and Murillo coming out to warm down rather than join in.
Fans chanted banterous things like “Vinicius, Balon d’Or” and “Solari, stay”. The chant of “champions, champions” was the one which stuck around the most. Barca fans turned the Bernabeu into Canaletes for one day.
