Real Madrid clinch 35th La Liga title with four games to spare

The Blancos now have an unassailable lead over second-placed Sevilla and have officially dethroned 2020-21 champions Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid have clinched their 35th La Liga title with four games to spare after beating Espanyol 4-0 at Santiago Bernabeu.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side only needed a point against Espanyol to secure the trophy, but ended up taking all three to record their fifth successive victory thanks to a first-half brace from Rodrygo before Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema added gloss.

Madrid have moved 17 points clear of second-placed Sevilla, whose title push effectively ended with a 1-1 draw against Cadiz on Friday, and celebrations are now underway in the Spanish capital.
