Real Madrid Trumps Barcelona To La Liga Title

Real Madrid wrapped up the La Liga title race with a game to spare as they edged past Villarreal at an empty Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.

Zinedine Zidane celebrated Ferland Mendy and Karim Benzema’s first-half goals wholeheartedly and when Granada pulled a goal back just after the interval, he booted a ball away in frustration in his technical area.

Vicente Iborra scored but it mattered little to Real as the club wrapped up their 34th Spanish title.

In the end, Barcelona’s defeat by Osasuna made the victory a little more comfortable but no less significant for Zidane, who was hoisted into the air by his players.
