Real Madrid sealed winning the La Liga title this season with a game to spare as they surpassed Villarreal by 2-1 at an empty Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium, and with seven points ahead from club rivals Barcelona.
Zinedine Zidane lead the Los Blancos as champions, now records a total of 34 league titles, after a relentless ten game winning streak after a long break due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Karim Benzema scored the two goals for Madrid; fired at the 29-minute mark between the legs of Sergio Asenjo assisted by Modrić, and added a controversial second goal at the 77-minute mark by retaking the penalty. you also can look at Harry Kane scores 200th club goal at here!
Vicente Iborra scored for Villarreal late at the 83-minute mark yet it didn’t gave much stress for Real Madrid as the club claimed its 34th Spanish title.
“This is better than anything. It takes a tremendous effort to win La Liga,” said the Real Madrid manager Zidane.
“After 38 matches, you have more points than anyone else. After lockdown and everything, it’s astonishing.”
Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos took the time paying tribute to Zinedine Zidane during his post-match interview with La Liga TV, hoping Zidane stays in charge for the coming years.
“Everything Zidane touches turns into gold,” Ramos said.
“We believe in him and in his work. He’s the one who has to make the difference, he’s a person who trusts players, and few do.
“We hope he stays here for a very long time, he is unique.”
Zidane’s focus with the club will now switch towards Champions League opponents Manchester City. The La Liga champions are bound to travel to Etihad Stadium on August 7as they trail 2-1 from the first leg.
Of course, not until he has enjoyed the second league win of his managerial career.
“The Champions League is the Champions League but La Liga makes me happier, because La Liga is what it’s all about,” he said.
“This is a tremendous feeling because what these players have done is incredible. I am lost for words because I am too emotional.
“The players are the ones who have fought for this. It’s true I’ve played my role but they are the ones who believe in what they are doing.”
While the Santiago Bernabeu currently under renovation, Real have been playing at their reserve stadium and won’t be doing their usual open-top bus parade to the Cibeles fountain in the centre of Madrid because of current safety concerns.
“It’s strange for everybody, we would have liked to have been with our fans at Cibeles but it’s not meant to be,” added Zidane.
“But I’m sure everyone is happy in their homes tonight. The fans always love to see the team win and we’ve done this for them.”
