In the season finale, Real Madrid defeated Villarreal CF 2-1. However, the championship still goes to city rivals Atletico Madrid. Here you can read the game in the live ticker.
Conclusion: What a furious finish in the master fight! Real was long behind a strong Villarreal with 0: 1 due to an uninspired and dispassionate performance, but woke up in the final minutes and was actually able to turn the game around. In the end, it didn’t help, Atletico – who were also 1-0 down in the meantime – won against Valladolid and are Spanish champions for the first time in seven years!
Real missed the 35th championship in the club’s history and ended the season without a title. There is a big question mark behind Zinedine Zidane’s future, the same applies to some players, especially Sergio Ramos. The Spaniard was surprisingly in the squad today, but was not substituted on.
Since Real Sociedad (1-0 against Osasuna) and Real Betis (3-2 against Celta Vigo) won their games, Villarreal finished the season in seventh place and bought a ticket for the Conference League. However, the Unai Emery team will have the chance to qualify for the Champions League next Wednesday via the Europa League final against Manchester United.
