Real Madrid Clinches 36th La Liga Title as Barcelona Falls to Girona

Real Madrid clinched their 36th La Liga title after Barcelona suffered a 4-2 defeat against Girona, ensuring Carlo Ancelotti’s side an unassailable lead at the top of the table with four matches remaining in the season.

Real Madrid had set the stage for their title triumph earlier in the day with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Cadiz. This meant that Barcelona needed a win against Girona to keep their title hopes alive, but they faltered in a thrilling encounter.

Despite leading 2-1 at half-time, Barcelona conceded three second-half goals to Girona, ultimately sealing Real Madrid’s championship victory. The result was celebrated by Real Madrid midfielder Jude Bellingham, who took to social media to express his joy and pride in the team’s achievement.

Bellingham’s contribution to Real Madrid’s success has been significant, with the English midfielder scoring 18 goals in 26 La Liga appearances in his debut season with the club. His championship win makes him the latest in a line of Englishmen to lift the La Liga trophy, joining the likes of Laurie Cunningham, Steve McManaman, David Beckham, and Kieran Trippier.

Real Madrid’s dominance in La Liga this season is evident from their impressive record, having lost just one league game so far and potentially aiming to finish the campaign with 99 points, their second-highest total ever. For Ancelotti, this title marks his second La Liga triumph as Real Madrid coach, adding to his previous success in the 2021-22 season.

With this victory, Real Madrid extends their lead over Barcelona in terms of La Liga titles, now holding nine more championships than their arch-rivals. Looking ahead, Real Madrid will focus on their upcoming Champions League semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich, aiming to secure a spot in the final after drawing 2-2 in the first leg at the Allianz Arena.
