Real Madrid are the La Liga Champions of the 2021-2022 season. With the 4-0 win over Espanyol at Santiago Bernabeu, the Los Blancos have confirmed their 35th La Liga title. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are 17 points clear of the 2nd placed Sevilla, and bagged the league title before the remaining 4 matches.
With this achievement, the Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has become the first-ever manager to win all of the European top five leagues – the Spanish La Liga, English Premier League, French Ligue 1, Italian Serie A, and the German Bundesliga.
Real Madrid hosted Espanyol on Saturday in the La Liga knowing that only a point would confirm their league title. The Madrid giants have smashed a 4-0 goals win over the Catalan visitors with the courtesy of Rodrygo’s brace and goals from Asensio and Benzema.
The Brazilian duo, Marcelo and Rodrygo, combined beautifully to open the scoring for Madrid. In the 33rd minute, Rodrygo played a magnificent one-two with Marcelo up the left wing before defeating two defenders. The former made it 1-0 with a controlled shot to the far corner. Rodrygo Goes made it 2-0 just before the break when Mariano had won the ball in a dangerous area.
Rodrygo defeated Cabrera and tricked the goalkeeper for a wonderful finish. Marco Asensio gave a juicy lead of 3-0 goals early in the 2nd half from a counter attack. Real Madrid got the 4th of the night at 83rd minute that Vinicius Junior had assisted for Karim Benzema. The Brazilian winger made a great run to the byline and found the French goal-machine waiting for the ball. Benzema made no mistake to make it 4-0 for Madrid, scoring his 26th goal, highest in the La Liga this season.
Real Madrid celebrated their 35th La Liga title in front of the home crowd after the 4-0 goals win over Espanyol. Real Madrid captain Marcelo have celebrated his 24 trophies with the club, setting up a record. They have gathered 81 points in 34 matches with this win, 17 points clear of Sevilla and 18 points of Barcelona.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men have still one eye locked on the UEFA Champions League. They have suffered a 4-3 goals defeat against Manchester City in the first leg of the semi-finals. However, the Los Blancos will host the second-leg, trailing by a goal on aggregate at Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. The in-form La Liga Champions will fancy their chances to beat the Citizens and play the final for grabbing their 14th UCL glory.
This La Liga title in 2021-2022 season is the 2nd league title for Real Madrid in three years. It seems that the Madrid clubs – Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid – have put an end to Barcelona’s domination of the last decade. Real Madrid have own the 2019-2020 and 2021-2022 La Liga titles, while Atleti have grabbed the 2020-2021 La Liga title.
