Real Madrid secure 33rd LaLiga title by beating Malaga

Real Madrid has won their 33rd La Liga title, and their first since the 2011-12 season, after recording a 2-0 win over Malaga in Sunday's decisive fixture at La Rosaleda. Consistency has been the most important thing - we've barely dropped any points.

The Andalusian club have lost six of their last eight meetings with Real Madrid.

However, Ronaldo should have had his second when Kameni got down low to his right to save from point-blank range.

Those statements sparked a war of words between Malaga and Barcelona with Barca lodging a complaint with the Spanish sporting authorities after Malaga's Qatari owner Abdullah Al-Thani described them on Twitter as "the scum of Catalonia".

The goal means Zinedine Zidane's side have now scored in every single match they have played in the league this season, which also extends a 64-game run across all competitions.

The first Clasico of the season lacked the drama of the second that was to follow later in the campaign, but it was crucial in Madrid's march to title glory.

They now face Juventus in the Champions League final looking to complete a double. It would be Madrid's first double in the European competition and in La Liga in almost six decades. The same players thrashed Granada 4-0, Leganes 4-2 and Eibar 4-1.

However, Barca have the superior head-to-head thanks to a 1-1 draw and 2-1 victory in each of the Clasicos this season, and Zinedine Zidane's side can yet be stunned if they lose to Malaga and the Catalans beat Eibar.

Bale and James return for crucial week.

Hot on the heels of that Villarreal revival, Madrid were on the ropes again at home to Las Palmas.

Madrid entered the last round needing a draw to make certain of avoiding its worst title drought since the 1980s and keep Barcelona from its third straight championship. "We played with concentration and intensity, we've kept our heads when we've needed to and we've got the points".

Stevan Jovetic had hit the woodwork twice before reducing the deficit shortly after the break, but Ronaldo's stunning strike in the 78th minute coupled with Kroos' late effort calmed any Bernabeu nerves.

Ronaldo was at his irrepressible best on Wednesday when he broke Jimmy Greaves' 46-year European scoring record with a double in Madrid's 4-1 win at Celta Vigo.
