Real Madrid are La Liga Champions.
Real Madrid have won the La Liga title after defeating Villareal at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano
In what could be described as a neck in neck battle to the end with bitter rivals Barcelona, the Los Blancos claim the glory with just two games left to play.
It was a well-deserved feat for Zinedine Zidane’s tutored lads having been the more clinical side since the restart of the league in Spain.
Compatriot, Karim Benzema has been a handful and proven to be the ‘go to man’ for everything going forward. It was just the best time to have him shoulder a lot for the side with 19 goals to show for it and includes the two goals last night. His sparkling form which drastically risen this term also saw him become Real Madrid’s all-time assist leader, surpassing former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, along with his goal 19 goals, it is easy to see how much Zidane depended on him. This feat has no doubt gotten him in the conversation for something rewarding than the title hopefully.

From that point, Madrid have been relentless, winning all of their games, overhauling bitter rivals Barcelona and clinching the title. Although this wasn’t the case throughout the campaign.
Madrid started the season impressively in their first 15 games which saw them take 10 victories, 4 draws and only one loss. This was crucial to the team’s rise in confidence having been considered the underdogs prior to the season’s start.
It may have been the most difficult achievement of Algerian born Zidane as it wasn’t the same as his first time in charge when he had quality in his team but low in confidence then.
The French coach this time deployed different systems, using wingers, five midfielders and four attackers on occasion. In the end, after 11 months, Los Blancos came out on top as the strongest team, mentally and physically, and, above all, the best team.
Three months after that loss to Real Betis, Real Madrid returned to action behind closed doors at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
The opening victory was against Eibar and was the first of a subsequent 10-match winning run that would see Zidane’s men overhaul Quique Setien’s Barcelona in the race for the title.
Although it may not be considered a memorable title win, with the pandemic ruining the atmosphere and intensity of the game for both the players and fans. Real however, will not care how it was won.
Sergio Ramos led this charge from the back and in attack, with Courtois, Raphael Varane, Dani Carvajal and Casemiro all inseparable in their defensive efforts to ensure that Madridstas across the world can smile again.
