Real Madrid beat Malaga to secure La Liga title

Real Madrid were named Spanish champions for the 33rd time, on Sunday night, after a 2-0 win away to Malaga.

Madrid edged out reigning champions Barcelona by just three points after the Catalans came from 2-0 down to beat Sociedad Deportiva Eibar 4-2 on Sunday.

The Spain global started as Real Madrid dispatched Malaga by two goals to one sealing their 33rd La Liga title triumph in the process, the club's first in five years. Karim Benzema added to the lead in the 55th minute off the rebound of a close-range shot by Sergio Ramos.

Navas is set to be between the sticks for Real Madrid's Champions League final against Juventus as they aim to win the double.

Madrid stars later celebrated their win into the early hours with fans at the Cibeles fountain.

Real boss Zinedine Zidane is the latest to win the Spanish league title as a coach and a player, following the likes of Bernd Schuster, Vicente del Bosque and Jorge Valdano. "It's even more important for Real Madrid because it's the biggest club in the world and we had to win it again".




There are still things to be achieved but today, it is the happiest I have ever been professionally.

"We know the Cardiff final will be very hard but for now we will enjoy our first La Liga title in five years".

Barcelona, who won the La Liga last season, were also presented with their trophy in an official La Liga gala prize-winning ceremony late in October.

"For Real Madrid, because it is the best club in the world, we have to return with this league title". He couldn't ask for more since his team had won the La Liga Championship. Professionally, it is the happiest day of my life.

On-field footage shows Luka Modric in a state of disbelief over not getting a chance to lift the trophy, while Cristiano Ronaldo bluntly says to Gareth Bale, "It's a f***ing joke".

"No, I'm not offended at all", Pique told reporters as he returned to begin preparations for Saturday's Copa del Rey final against Alaves.
