Overall, Madrid extended their all-time record for LaLiga wins to 33 and it is a success that checks Barcelona’s recent dominance of the competition.

Los Blancos’ previous title came under Jose Mourinho in 2011-12, marking their longest drought since Johan Cruyff’s Barca won four in a row between 1990-91 and 1993-94.
