Real Madrid clinched their record extending 35th La Liga title with a 4-0 victory against Espanyol. Real is 15 points ahead of Barcelona in second place, with four games left to play this season. The win also made their coach Carlo Ancelotti the first manager to lift titles in each of Europe’s top five leagues.

Real Madrid only needed a point to bag their second title in three seasons. Rodrygo opened the scoring and made it double in the 43rd minute before Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema completed the victory in front of nearly 80,000 people inside the Santiago Bernabeu. It is the earliest Madrid have won the trophy since winning it with four games to spare in 1989-90.

“I’m proud. I want to keep winning titles with Real Madrid,” Ancelotti told Real Madrid TV. The 62-year-old quit Everton post to make a Real Madrid return for the second time around last summer, replacing the sacked coach Zinedine Zidane. No other manager in history has won the Premier League (Chelsea), Serie A (AC Milan), Ligue 1 (PSG), Bundesliga (Bayern Munich) and La Liga (Real Madrid). 

Real Madrid have reclaimed the title from city rivals Atletico Madrid, who won last season. They also beat Atletico in the Spanish Super Cup earlier this year. “Congratulations, we’ll see each other Wednesday. I’ll say this to the fans, Wednesday we need this atmosphere,” he added, speaking about their upcoming Champions League match against Manchester City. 

Real have won 25 league games and lost just three, with their talisman Karim Benzema scoring 42 goals in 42 games. “Winning La Liga is special. We played a great match, the atmosphere was incredible and we hope to repeat that Wednesday,” midfielder Luka Modric told Real Madrid TV. “We’ve had an incredible season and now we want to celebrate that a bit.”

Earlier, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has clinched a record-equaling 10th French title despite settling to a 1-1 home draw by 10-man Lens. Bayern Munich also clinched the German Bundesliga title after beating second-placed Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in Der Klassiker to secure a record-extending 10th consecutive crown, becoming the first club to have won 10 straight titles in Europe’s top five leagues.
