Almost a year ago, sadness was present in Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. Last season, the Atlético de Madrid overtook the two Spanish mastodons to win the 2020-2021 Liga with two small points more than the Merengues. Frustrating. But this time, Casa Blanca has taken its rightful place. Against Espanyol Barcelona on Saturday afternoon for the 34th day of Liga, Carlo Ancelotti’s squad won 2-0 to secure the title of Spanish Champion!
A few days before the return match of the Champions League against Manchester City, Carlo Ancelotti had decided to line up a completely revamped team this Saturday afternoon. Modric, Courtois and Casemiro (as the central defender) were the frames lined up on the ground of the Santiago Bernabeu. For the rest, new faces like Vallejo, Mariano Diaz or Ceballos started. And in front, it was the young Rodrygo Goes who delighted. In a rather monotonous first half, the Brazilian scored a double on his only two occasions. Two shots from the right that gave Diego Lopez no chance (32′, 42′). That was enough to secure the title for his team.
