The capital club clinched a record 33rd Spanish league title, but they were unable to clutch the silverware on the occasion of their triumph
Despite the elation of winning their first La Liga in five years, Real Madrid's stars were left somewhat bemused following their title-clinching win over Malaga.
Zinedine Zidane's side ensured their first Primera Divisionsuccess since 2012 with a 2-0 win at La Rosaleda on Sunday, but their on-pitch celebrations were dampened by the news that the trophy would not be presented to them until next season.
Madrid beat Barca to Vinicius Jr.
During the post-match festivities, Gareth Bale and Luka Modric appear visibly confused when Madrid's press officer informs them that there will be no trophy presentation.

In footage of the celebrations, Bale can then be seen discussing the news with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was, to put it mildly, less than impressed.
"There's no trophy," says the perplexed seeming Wales international.
Ronaldo, who scored one of Madrid's two goals in the win, responds: "I know. It's a fucking joke!"
Real Madrid could well be forced to wait a number of months before being presented with their 33rd Primera Division trophy.
Indeed, last season's champions Barcelona only received their trophy at an official awards ceremony held in October.
