Villarreal’s Vicent ibbora scored a second have consolation but Madrid managed to hold on to their lead that got them clinching the title for a record 34 times.
Barcelona looked on course of denying Madrid a la liga title for a third successive season as they went into the unplanned break leading Madrid on top of the table with two point but their inconsistent performances after the break gave Zidane’s men a chance on which they capitalized to win their first title since 2017.
This becomes Zidane’s second la liga title in his two spells in charge of the Glacticos having won his first in the season of 2016-17.
Los Blancos who needed only two points to win the title went seven points clear of second placed Barcelona after the catalans failed to beat 10 men osasuna at the camp Nou despite Messi scoring.
Real Madrid won their title at Alfredo di Stefano stadium inside their training complex where they’ve been playing their home games after football returned as they allow quick renovation of the Santiago Bernabeu. They took on their celebrations with no fans in the stadium due to lockdown regulations.
Madrid will have karim Benzima Who their top scorer and Sergio Ramos to thank as their goals always saved the day for for Los Blancos who had always come in for criticism for winning games by a single goal and also over relying on VAR to win games.
The newly crowned Spanish Champions will now turn their guns to the champions league second leg match where they face English side Manchester city and hoping to overturn the 2-1 deficit they suffered at the Bernabeu before football was temporarily suspended.
