Real Madrid clinch La Liga ti­tle with win over Vil­lar­real

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport Premier League -

Everton man­ager Carlo Ancelotti at least had some­thing to smile about last night, as his for­mer club Real Madrid sealed the Span­ish league ti­tle with a 2-1 vic­tory over Vil­lar­real at the Bern­abeu.

Zine­dine Zi­dane’s side have been in sen­sa­tional form since the restart, win­ning all of their 10 matches since La Liga re­turned in mid-June.

They have been led, as ever, by buc­ca­neer­ing cap­tain Ser­gio Ramos, who has scored five goals from cen­tre-back since the restart.

Karim Ben­zema has also been in fine form in re­cent weeks. The French­man struck twice last night, mak­ing it three games in a row in which he has found the net.

There was once again no place for Gareth Bale in the Madrid team. The Welsh­man has played only 100 min­utes of foot­ball since the re­turn from lock­down, and has been seen pre­tend­ing to fall asleep while on the bench and then mak­ing a binoc­u­lars ges­ture to­ward the pitch.
