Real Madrid win a record 35th LaLiga championship
Second-half goals from Rodrygo gave Real Madrid a 4-0 win over Espanyol on Saturday to extend their LaLiga title record. With this victory, Carlo Ancelotti became the first manager to win titles in all five of Europe’s top leagues. England, Spain, Germany, Italy, and France.
As soon as the halftime rolled around, Real Madrid went up 2-0 thanks to two goals from Rodrygo. Marco Asensio added a third before LaLiga’s top scorer, Karim Benzema, made it three before the end. After coming off the bench late in the second half, real Madrid captain Benzema lifted the Champions League trophy. Carlo Ancelotti rested several regular starters ahead of Wednesday’s second leg of their semi-final against Manchester City.
Real Madrid leads the league with 81 points after four games. A point against Espanyol was all they needed to seal the title with less than a month left in the season, as they lead Sevilla by 17 points and Barcelona by 18, both of whom have one game remaining.
Marcelo’s 24th piece of silverware with Real Madrid made him the most successful player in the club’s 120-year history, overtaking Gento as the most successful player.
