But will Zinedine Zidane’s side form a guard of honour? Here is all you need to know…

What is a Guard of Honour? And could Real Madrid have to give one to Barcelona?

A guard of honour is when a person or group of people line up to congratulate other(s) on an achievement.

Essentially, it is seen as a mark of respect.

But sporting opponents don’t have to form them.

Barcelona did form a guard of honour for Real Madrid when Los Blancos won the title in 2008.

 

Will Real Madrid give a Guard of Honour?

Zinedine Zidane has announced that Real Madrid will NOT give Barcelona a Guard of Honour under any circumstances.

A year ago Barcelona went against apparent tradition by refusing to honour Real with a Guard of Honour after they won the Club World Cup.

And the French boss said: “I don’t know how much you are going to ask me, but my response is very clear.

“It is my decision and that is it.

“I don’t understand the guard of honour and it won’t take place, although we are far from the end of the season.

“Barcelona broke the tradition.”
