Real Madrid have won the remaining four LaLiga matches thanks to a 4-0 win over Espanyol.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side went into Saturday’s game at the Santiago Bernabeu knowing that a point would be enough to wrap up the 35th LaLiga title in the club’s prestigious history.

But anything other than a win at home did not look possible after Rodrygo opened the scoring in the 33rd minute, with Los Blancos winning comfortably despite the team’s crucial rotation.

Rodrygo made it 2-0 10 minutes later, before substitute Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema added points in the second half.

Success this season represents Ancelotti’s first LaLiga title, which has become the first coach to win all five of Europe’s top leagues, having won in England, Germany, France, and Italy.

Madrid have been leading the way for most of the time as Atletico Madrid are struggling to defend their title and Barcelona have been bedridden without Lionel Messi.

Sevilla had represented Madrid’s closest rivals for a long time but fell short, and Barca’s recent run-off has shattered their hopes of a title challenge.

Madrid’s full focus will now shift to the Champions League. They are trailing 4-3 on aggregate in both semi-final matches against Manchester City next week.
