Real Madrid are La Liga champions for the first time in five seasons.

Zinedine Zidane’s men went into their final day clash with Malaga knowing a point would be enough for their 33rd title.

They did so in style, winning 2-0, while Barcelona fought back to beat Eibar.

It took Real just over 90 seconds to open the scoring through talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese raced onto an Isco through ball and rounded Carlos Kameni before slotting into the net.

Karim Benzema secured the win – and the title – soon after half-time as he tapped home after Kameni had denied Sergio Ramos.

38 match days and at the end of it all, it is the most difficult and beautiful, the Spanish league is the best in my opinion and to win it with this game is incredible – I am very happy,” Zidane said.

Zinedine Zidane’s men have scored in each and every La Liga game this season, losing just three times.

A dramatic Clasico victory last month gave Barca title hope but Real held off their challenge to lift the title.

They will now go in search of an impressive double in the Champions League final with Juventus.

Real take on the Italian champions on June 3 and can end a 24-year wait for the trophy to be retained.
