Last night’s performance at Santiago Bernabau sent Real Madrid to clinch the La Liga title for the 34th time after waiting for three years.
The Blancos outperformed Villarreal with a 2-1 defeat overhauling their rivals with a 10-game winning streak since La Liga returned in June after a three-month break due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Zidane Zidane was reappointed for his second spell as coach in March 2019, he now bags two trophies this year, the Spanish Super Cup in January and LA Liga.
Also, he has won 10 trophies for the Blancos while in charge from 2016 to 2018 including one league title and three Champions Leagues, before resigning.
The 2019-20 season has seen Madrid and Barca battle it out at the top of the table, with little to separate the two giants.
Madrid have had to compete for much of the campaign without €100 million star signing Eden Hazard, who has struggled with a persistent ankle injury which eventually required surgery.
The 2-0 Clasico win over Barca on March 1 was crucial — but it was followed by a 2-1 defeat at Real Betis which left Barca two points ahead when La Liga was suspended on March 12.
