Real Madrid are now officially the La Liga champions for the 2021/2022 season. They have been crowned champions for the 35th time in the club’s history after defeating Espanyol 4-0.
With still four weeks of match-days remaining, the Los Blancos have sealed their La Liga crown and guaranteed to be on top of the table no matter what. This means that their manager Carlo Ancelloti becomes the first coach to win a title in each of Europe’s top five leagues: adding La Liga to his collection of titles in the Serie A, the Premier League, Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga.
This title becomes even more special for Real Madrid as they are able to lift the trophy in the Santiago Bernabeu for the first time since 2007. They have lifted three of their last four titles away from home, while having won a title once with the stadium under construction.
This title is Real Madrid’s second Spanish league title in the space of three years. They lost out to Atletico Madrid once on the final day of the season. This has been a period of dominance in Spain for Real Madrid, after Barcelona dominated the last decade in the Spanish top flight.
Real Madrid have now won the league title a total of 35 times, nine times more than their fierce rivals FC Barcelona. Atletico Madrid have also won the title 11 times and are the only other side apart from Barcelona and Real Madrid to win more than 10 La Liga titles.
Real Madrid have not stopped yet at just the La Liga title. The Los Blancos are dreaming of lifting the most prestigious trophy in Europe, the UEFA Champions League. In order to achieve that goal, Real Madrid will have to make a comeback at the Bernabeu on Wednesday against Manchester City. Even though it is a tough task, Madrid have already achieved the feat before, after making a tremendous comeback against Paris Saint Germain.
The Los Blancos have had an outstanding season and European glory will add even more joy to the fans and players.
