Real Madrid beat Cadiz 3-0.
Then Barcelona fell to Girona 4-2.
This means that “Los Blancos” secured the league title in La Liga.
– Everyone in the team is very happy, says Real Madrid captain Nacho in a clip.

Earlier on Saturday, La Liga leaders Real Madrid cleaned Cadiz. The match ended 3-0 and that meant that the capital club could become champions in a jacket later in the evening. What was required was for Barcelona to drop points against top rivals Girona.

Barcelona kicked off the Catalonia meeting and Andreas Christensen made it 1-0 after three minutes. But the successful striker Artem Dovbyk responded immediately and equalized a minute later.

Away team Barcelona regained the lead shortly after the break and this time it was Robert Lewandowski who scored a penalty.

In the 65th minute, Portu was substituted for Girona and he really made an impact in this game. After just a few seconds on the field, the 31-year-old equalized. A minute later, he assisted Miguel Gutierrez, who is on loan in Girona from Real Madrid, for a 3-2 goal and in the 74th he sent a volley in from distance behind Marc-Andre ter Stegen. A decent entry from Portu.

The match ended 4-2.

– Girona were toxic today. We were in control and dominated possession in the second half and we could have closed the game. But we didn’t. It really hurts now, says Barcelona’s Sergi Roberto according to bold.dk.

The result means that Real Madrid are champions of La Liga with four rounds remaining.

– Now we are champions in this very special league. Everyone in the team is very happy, which I am too,” said “Los Blancos” captain Nacho in a clip on Real Madrid’s social media, continuing:

– It means a lot to us to win the title. I want to assure you that we will celebrate next weekend, because this deserves to be celebrated. But we are already thinking about Wednesday’s match against Bayern.

In the same vein, Girona have secured a historic Champions League spot, the club having never before made it to the tournament.

The league title is Real Madrid’s 36th in a row.
