Real Madrid clinched their 34th LaLiga title on Friday — with a game still to go after beating Villarreal 2-1. Karim Benzema starred for Madrid with a brace to seal the win — which is also their tenth consecutive win.
Benzema broke the deadlock in the 29th-minute and then with a successful penalty in the 77th-minute sealed the game, tough Villarreal hit back with a late goal in the 83th-minute but it is proved to be too little too late.
Madrid now have 86 points from 37 matches with 26 wins whereas second-placed Barcelona has 79 points from the equal number of matches.
Since the 2016-17 season, this is Madrid’s first title, and their second under manager Zinedine Zidane. With the win, Zidane’s Madrid has also managed to stop Barcelona from winning a hattrick of titles.
“The fans are at home, and they are happy to see their team win LaLiga again.”
