The merengue team is close to getting the title in La Liga and thus would cut the streak of the Chilean, who has not lost a league title since 2011.
Real Madrid is getting closer to yelling champion in The league. Zinedine Zidane’s painting could be crowned next Thursday and thus end an historic streak that he owns Arturo vidal, who has not lost a local championship title since the 2011-12 season.
And is that in the absence of two days for the end of LaLiga, those of the White House have a four-point advantage over Barcelona. The Meringues need only two points to lift the trophy, number 34.
The first match will be this Thursday against Villarreal, at Alfredo Di Stéfano. Winning the match against the Yellow Submarine will make them champions without having to reach the last day, where Leganés will wait. While the Catalans can only wait for the miracle with Osasuna and Alavés on the horizon.
If crowned, Madrid will cut the record for the Chilean midfielder in domestic competitions. And it is that the man from La Roja, since his arrival at Juventus in 2011-12, has always won the First Division championship with his teams. With Vecchia Signora in Serie A (2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15), Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga (2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18) and with the Blaugranas in the Hispanic tournament (2018-19).
In fact, with his last trophy with Barça, the San Joaquin-born became the first footballer to win eight consecutive league titles in three of the five most important competitions in Europe.
A trajectory marked by success for the Chilean who will come to an end because of his arch rival. Thus, the Chilean midfielder will only have to try to win the Champions League this season, something that pushed him to sign with those of the Camp Nou and that remains his priority objective.
