Real Madrid clinched their 34th league title after they beat Villarreal on Thursday evening. The title was won with 2 games left to play because Barcelona was beaten in the Camp Nou by 10 man Osasuna team and they were 7 points behind Real Madrid with 6 points to play for.
Before now, the Spanish league was dominated by Barcelona. They were the best team in the county with the best players. Even when Cristiano Ronaldo was in Spain, La Liga wasn't really easy to win. Madrid was dominating in Europe but failed to do so in Spain.
However, things look different now. Real Madrid can boast of the best young attacking talents in the league and so an era is coming where Los Blancos will dominate. It was evident as Zidane Zidane relied on 2 youngsters with Benzema - Vinicius and Rodrygo to bring domestic success to the club.
These 2 young Brazilians were the catalysts that boost Real Madrid's attack in the absence of out of flavored Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard, and Jovic who were flops and the injured Asensio.

Benzema had 46 appearances with 26 goals and 11 assists while Rodrygo had 25 appearances with 7 goals and 2 assists and Vinicius Junior had 5 goals and 3 assist in 37 games. These 3 guys played more and contributed more to the Real Madrid winning of the 34th league title. In 20 games Bake scored only 3 goals while record signing, Eden Hazard scored just 1 goal in 21 games for Madrid.
It's obvious that the future of Madrid is secured as they already have youngsters who can be relied on. It's going to be a new era in La Liga, an era where Real Madrid will dominate Spain again.
The truth is apart from Benzema, Ramos, Courtois, Modric, Casemiro, and Kroos, these 2 youngsters were the best players this season for Madrid.
