Real Madrid wins 35th La Liga in grand style

Real Madrid put four past Espanyol to win a record 35th La Liga title.

The Champions, who are 17 points clear of second-placed Sevilla with four games to play, needed just a draw from the game to win the trophy, but nothing beats an emphatic win, so Carlo Ancelotti’s men went all in to show what champions are made of.

Two first-half goals from Rodrygo set Madrid rolling. After the break, Marcos Asensio made it three, before Karim Benzema came off the bench to increase the deficit to four, and the celebration that ensued was taken to the streets. 

The triumph also saw Ancelotti become the first manager to win the league in all five of Europe’s major leagues, having already won titles in Italy’s Serie A, France’s Ligue 1, the Premier League in England, and the German Bundesliga.
