The city of Madrid has erupted into jubilation as Real Madrid clinched their 34th LaLiga title after beating Villarreal 2-1 on Thursday.
It is Madrid’s first LaLiga title since the 2016-17 campaign and means they have now won the top flight eight more times than Barca, who will finish second with Manager Zinedine Zidane winning 11 trophies across two spells in charge at the Real Madrid.
Madrid finished a distant third in a hugely underwhelming campaign last term, in which they were defeated 12 times in LaLiga, but have lost just three games this season and have racked up 10 straight wins since the season resumed following the three-month coronavirus-enforced break.

In another result, Barcelona lost 2-1 to Osasuna to cap what has been a miserable season to the 26th times LaLiga champions.
Next up is a Champions League match against Manchester City, though they must overturn a 2-1 first-leg deficit in the last 16 to continue their tilt for European glory.
