Zidane Guides Real Madrid to La Liga Crown

Real Madrid are La Liga champions for the first time in five seasons and Zinedine Zidane guided them to the title in his first full season in charge.

Zidane’s men went into their final day clash with Malaga knowing a point would be enough for the title.

They did so in style, winning 2-0, while Barcelona fought back to beat Eibar 4-2.

It took Real just over 90 seconds to open the scoring through talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese raced onto an Isco through ball and rounded Carlos Kameni before slotting into the net.

Karim Benzema secured the win – and the title – soon after half-time as he tapped home after Kameni had denied Sergio Ramos.

Real and Barca had been tied ahead of Los Blancos’ game in hand against Celta Vigo in midweek.

A 4-1 victory in that one put Real on the brink of the title and left Luis Enrique’s men needing the leaders to slip up.

Zinedine Zidane’s men have scored in each and every La Liga game this season, losing just three times.

A dramatic Clasico victory last month gave Barca title hope but Real held off their challenge to lift the title.

They will now go in search of an impressive double in the Champions League final with Juventus.

Real take on the Italian champions on June 3 and can end a 24-year wait for the trophy to be retained.
