Ronaldo & Benzema Lead Real To La Liga Glory

Spanish La Liga

Result: Malaga 0-2 Real Madrid

Date: 21 May 2017

Venue: La Rosaleda

Real Madrid have been crowned La Liga champions after goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema secured a 2-0 win over Malaga on the final day of the season.

Los Blancos broke the deadlock after just two minutes, as Isco played in Ronaldo, who rounded Carlos Kameni to slot into an empty net.

Keylor Navas came to Real's rescue after 20 minutes, as he produced a superb save to keep out a free-kick from former FC Barcelona striker Sandro.

Los Blancos nearly doubled their lead in the 34th minute but Cameroon shot-stopper, Carlos Kameni pulled off a fine save to deny Ronaldo from six-yards out.

Navas was proving to be the busier of the two goal keepers as the half went on, as ensured Los Blancos went into the break one goal up.

Los Blancos eventually doubled their lead 10 minutes into the second half as Karim Benzema fired home from close range, after Kameni had saved Sergio Ramos' initial strike.

Zidane opted for a double change after 65 minutes as James Rodriguez and Mateo Kovavic replaced Isco and Casemiro.

Malaga looked a little threatening after 75 minutes but they struggled to carved out clear-cut chances in the final third.

Alvaro Morata was introduced for Benzema in the closing stages, but Los Blancos failed to add to their advantage as they secured the league title with a 2-0 win.

Zidane's charges finish the campaign three points ahead of rivals, FC Barcelona, who defeated Eibar 3-2 at the Camp Nou.
