Real clinch 33rd La Liga title

Real clinch 33rd La Liga title

Club talisman Cristiano Ronaldo was absolutely instrumental, scoring in the second minute of the game to give his team the platform for the win.

With news coming in from Barcelona that Eibar had taken a shock lead against Barcelona at the Camp Nou, Real Madrid and their fans were able to relax somewhat and start thinking about the celebrations.

Cristiano Ronaldo launched a scathing attack on the Spanish media after Real Madrid secured the Liga title on Sunday night in La Rosaleda, saying: "People talk about me and do not know a damn thing".

Madrid won La Liga and the Europa League in 1985-86, but their last season with both a La Liga and Champions League crown (then European Cup) title was nearly sixty years ago.

He netted 33 in that campaign, which also makes him only the second La Liga player to score at least 25 goals in his past eight campaigns in Spain - a record previously only achieved by Ronaldo's longstanding rival Lionel Messi.

"The only Gaspar I know is one of the three kings", Claimed the Madrid captain.




Real Madrid wins the Spanish league for the first time in five years, avoiding its biggest title drought since the 1980s.

"We deserve a lot of credit for title. I will stay", Isco told reporters. I've been here a long time and it's a very tough league to win.

"There are always doubts during the season but we've managed to keep working and fighting hard and we've done really well". Zinedine Zidane was very happy after reaching the final of the Champions League again.

Isco continued: "Yes it was complicated at first, but I have remained strong psychologically and I have received the support of all". "We have had a smarter management, with the help of the coach and the players who have played less".

They top the final standings on 93 points, three ahead of last year's champions Barcelona, 15 above Atletico Madrid in third and 21 clear of fourth-placed Sevilla. "We played with concentration and intensity, we've kept our heads when we've needed to and we've got the points". A lot of people didn't want Real Madrid to win La Liga, but we fought right until the last. "We didn't depend on ourselves [going into the final day]". This title is for our fans. "We have won one and can win another".
