Zinedine Zidane’s team went to the front against Villarreal, defeated him 2-1 at Alfredo Di Stéfano and took the title with a date to go.
Real Madrid regained the title of champion in The league thanks to his victory this Thursday against Villarreal 3-1, which allows him to cut the Barcelona streak as a winner for two consecutive seasons.
The white team had margin, since it was aware that with draws in the last two days it was enough to celebrate. However he did not speculate, he dominated the Yellow Submarine from start to finish and achieved his 10th consecutive victory. It also means that it has maintained perfect pace in the last month since soccer returned after the long paralysis due to the pandemic.
At the Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium, Zinedine Zidane’s team handled the ball although it was difficult for them to get there clearly. A ball that Dani Carvajal tried to place over Sergio Asenjo added to the deflected shots of Casemiro and Karim Benzema were the announcements of the premises in the first quarter of an hour.
At 28 minutes the zero was broken with a poorly stopped defending defender: Luka Modric, active in orchestrating the attack, assisted Benzema and the Frenchman did not forgive hand in hand.
While Madrid was heading to the title on their own without depending on anything or anyone, they learned that Osasuna was temporarily defeating Barcelona and this facilitated the story.
In addition, a controversial action: Sergio Ramos recovered the ball in the middle of the field, ran towards the rival area and, before downloading for Ferland Mendy, collided with a defender. For the referee it was a penalty despite having listened to his assistants and after that, another controversial move.
Because Ramos took over but, instead of finishing direct, he played for Benzema who invaded the area before the execution, and defined the goal. However, the shot was repeated. Why? Is that another Villarreal footballer also entered the area at that time. Then, Benzema was responsible for the second attempt and converted with his corner kick.
With five minutes to go, the visitor took it upon himself to put mystery to the scoreboard after VIcente Iborra stung in solitude after a ball and capitalized on his goal action.
With a little suffering and a victory that seemed to be at risk, especially in the discount with a providential save by Thibaut Courtois, he fulfilled his objective and took the 34th star in his history, the first since the 2016/17 campaign, and This consolidates him as the maximum winner of La Liga.
