This Barca-loving newspaper are taking Real's Champions League win well

Who’s counting anyway?

RULE NUMBER ONE of partisan journalism: never miss an opportunity to have a front-page dig at your rivals, even if they’ve just won the Champions League.

Barcelona watched on from afar as Real Madrid celebrated la Undécima on Saturday night but, charitably enough, Catalan newspaper Sport saw fit to feature the news on Monday’s front page.

Of course, they had to mention that Barca won four trophies themselves this season — a La Liga/Copa del Rey domestic double along with the Uefa Super Cup and the Fifa Club World Cup.

“Barca win 4-1,” the headline reads. “The proof that Barca’s 2015-16 has been better than Madrid’s.”

Well, you can’t accuse them of ignoring the story anyway.
