Real Madrid are league champions for the 33rd time in their history after they beat Málaga 0-2 on Sunday night! After Wednesday night’s win at Celta, Zidane’s side needed at least a draw to stay ahead of Barcelona, and with only two minutes gone Ronaldo gave them the lead after Isco put him through. Sandro in particular brought two or three good saves out of Keylor Navas before the break, but Kameni had to keep out Ronaldo, and some ten minutes in to the second half the local keeper could only block a shot from Sergio Ramos following a Kroos corner, and Benzema was on hand to stick in the rebound. Both keepers had saves to make after that, Kameni stopping Morata and Modric, and Navas deflecting a late shot from Chory Castro on to the woodwork late on, but the result was never in doubt after that opening goal, and Madrid had their first league title in five years.
