"It's four points against Real Madrid, four points from Atletico, six from Sevilla, four points against Villarreal, four points against Real Sociedad, six against Athletic Bilbao".

With news coming in from Barcelona that Eibar had taken a shock lead against Barcelona at the Camp Nou, Real Madrid and their fans were able to relax somewhat and start thinking about the celebrations.

Madrid's players returned to the Calderon pitch 15 minutes after the final whistle, diving together across the slippy surface towards their own crowd high in one corner of the Estadio Vicente Calderon before unused substitute Nacho spread a Madrid flag on the ground.

Madrid could go onto complete a first La Liga and Champions League double for 59 years when they face Juventus in the final in Cardiff on June 3.

However, after the game Ronaldo let his mouth do all the talking.

"You never know what's going to happen".

"They always throw stones at me when I talk, like I'm the devil himself which is really odd because I have never claimed to be a saint". I'm very happy because it was a spectacular end to the season, the best in many seasons, because of intelligent management, the help of the coach, and the contributions of those who played less. It's a very sweet moment and you have to enjoy it. Madrid scored in every game of the season, which shows our philosophy.

The win meant that regardless of Barcelona's efforts, Madrid would lift the trophy for the first time in five years - something Ramos would've been dreaming about for a long time.

Madrid claimed the Spanish title for a 33rd time as Cristiano Ronaldo struck his 40th goal of the season and Karim Benzema slotted home early in the second-half to secure a 2-0 win at Malaga.

"Right now I would like to stand up here and dance", he added in a press conference interrupted by Marcelo, Danilo, Casemiro, Lucas Vazquez and Alvaro Morata drowning their boss in champagne.

"As coach of Real Madrid you know what the expectations are", he said.

"But I think his work alongside Ancelotti as an assistant, and then his work in charge of the reserve team, gave him enough experience to get into the job".
