Real Madrid sealed their 35th League tittle today after beating Espanyol with goals from Rodrygo and strikes from Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema.

They are 17 points clear of second-placed Sevilla with four games to play.

Ancelotti has also won titles in Italian Serie A, French Ligue 1, the Premier League in England and the German Bundesliga.

Real needed only need a draw to win the title, but victory was never really in doubt once Rodrygo stroked home from just inside the area.

The Brazilian doubled Real’s lead a minute before the break when he robbed Sergi Gomez of possession on the edge of the penalty area and fired low into the bottom corner.

Asensio finished off a rapid counter-attack before Benzema – rested with Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final against Manchester City in mind – came off the bench to sidefoot home from Vinicius Jr’s cutback.
