Real Madrid has clinched its first Spanish league title in three years. Madrid secured its record 34th league title with a 2-1 win over Villarreal on Thursday, opening an seven-point gap to second-place Barcelona with one round to go.
Barcelona lost to 10-man Osasuna at the Camp Nou Stadium. A 2-1 defeat at Real Betis in Madrid's final game before the stoppage looked set to prove the turning point in a close-fought race.
However, as Barca have faltered, Madrid have ground out win after win and can now focus on ending a unique season with a LaLiga and Champions League double
Karim Benzema scored twice to give Madrid its 10th consecutive league victory. It is the only team with a perfect record after the coronavirus-enforced break. It was Madrid's first league title since Cristiano Ronaldo left to join Juventus two seasons ago, and the first since coach Zinedine Zidane returned from a short break.
