Real Madrid Crowned La Liga Champions For The 34th Time

Real Madrid have been crowned La Liga champions for the 34th time with a game to spare.

Barcelona's defeat to Osasuna, coupled with Real's 2-1 win over Villarreal thanks to a Karim Benzema double, means Los Blancos are La Liga winners - and captain Sergio Ramos will get his hands on the trophy once again this evening.

Zinedine Zidane's side took 86 points from 37 games, winning 26, drawing eight and losing three in an impressive campaign at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Previous champions Barca made the move to sack Ernesto Valverde and replace him with Quique Setien in January but the decision hasn't exactly had the desired effect.

The Blaugrana were at the top of the table at the time but a number of disappointing defeats, six to be exact, has left them as runners up in the table.

Real, meanwhile, were completely and utterly relentless after the lengthy break following the COVID-19 outbreak.

Playing behind-closed-doors at the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano stadium due to the ongoing renovation work on the Santiago Bernabeu didn't make the slightest difference, with Real winning ten games in a row en route to bringing the title back to the Spanish capital.

The latest title triumph also moves them ahead of El Clasico rivals Barca in the trophy totals, with Real now one ahead on 92.

It's yet another honour for Zidane, who now averages a trophy every 19 games as he somehow looks to create a better managerial career than his glittering playing career.
