Having joined Real Madrid back in 2009, Cristiano Ronaldo had only claimed one league title in seven attempts with Los Blancos…
Heading into the final gameweek of La Liga, Real Madrid sat three points above Barcelona. A win or a draw would guarantee them their first league title since Jose Mourinho led them to glory back in 2012.
Fans feared that a tricky away fixture vs Malaga might just have caused Real some severe problems at the final hurdle. However, two minutes into the clash, Ronaldo emphatically alleviated those concerns.
With Real Madrid only needing a point to secure the title, it now looks as if the remainder of the fixture is a mere formality as Zidane’s side look to see out the 90 minutes.
The Galacticos still have a Champions League final to look forward to against Juventus on the third of June. However, for today at least, they can sit back and bask in the glory of finally being crowned as Spanish champions once again.
