Real Madrid won the 35th La Liga title on Saturday with four games remaining after a 4-0 home win over Espanyol sparked by two goals from Rodrygo.
Neglecting just one point to win the title, Madrid secured the Brazilian twice in the first half at the Santiago Bernabeu before goals from Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema.
Madrid led by a 17-point lead over second-placed Sevilla with four games to go. Barcelona are one game behind but are 18 points behind.
Considering they have been at the top since November, it is not surprising that Madrid won the league they have dominated for several months, but the Barcelona and Sevilla players have given a chance to win, being crowned sooner than expected.
With La Liga completed, Madrid can now focus all their efforts on the second leg of their semi-final home game against Manchester City on Wednesday, when they will have to overturn a 4-3 defeat in the opening match last week to advance. another European final.
