Real Madrid wins its 1st Spanish title since 2012

MADRID (AP) — Real Madrid won the Spanish league for the first time in five years on Sunday, avoiding its worst title drought since the 1980s and keeping Barcelona from its third straight championship.

Zinedine Zidane’s team secured its 33rd league title with a 2-0 win at Malaga with goals by Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

The last-round victory gave Madrid a three-point advantage over second-placed Barcelona, which rallied from two goals down to beat Eibar 4-2 at the Camp Nou.

Madrid entered the final weekend needing a draw to guarantee its first title since 2012.
