MADRID, May 2 (Xinhua) – Real Madrid have secured the title of La Liga champion this season after a 4-0 victory over Espanyol. Here are some things we learned in Spain this weekend.

1 Real Madrid are worthy champions

There is no doubt that “Real” deserves the title of La Liga champion, which they assured on Saturday, beating at home over “Espanyol” with a score of 4: 0, and four more matches.

Having scored 81 points so far, Carlo Ancelotti’s team was the best team in Spain, and when other teams played with them on the field, the magical moments of Karim Benzema, Thibaut Courtois and Vinicius Jr. pulled them out of trouble.

However, there is a feeling that this season none of their main rivals was close to their best.

For example, last season Atletico won the championship with 86 points, Real was second with 84 points, Barça was third with 79, and two years ago Barça was second with 80 points.

With four games left to play, the maximum number of points that can be scored by Barça and Sevilla is 78 and 76 respectively, which is well below the norm.

That doesn’t mean taking anything away from Real, but their rivals were well below level.

2 Athletics missing Joao Felix

Athletic Madrid beat almost their entire 2-0 defeat away from Bilbao on Saturday night, and their place in next season’s Champions League is now in doubt.

Athletics have won one, drawn two and lost one of their last four league games without scoring in three. If we add to this equation their two Champions League matches against Manchester City, they have failed to find a net in five of their last six games.

Perhaps it is no coincidence that this form occurs after Joao Felix suffered a hamstring injury that ended the season, and the club lacks not only his goals but also his creativity.

Given this, it’s hard to see why Angel Correa didn’t start in Bilbao, but a look at the four games that Atletico have left this season tells us they need to improve, otherwise they could miss the top four.

3 Marcelina does her thing

At his press conference before Saturday’s victory over Atletico Madrid, Atletico Bilbao coach Marceline Garcia Toral explained that he had not heard anything from the candidates for the upcoming presidential election at the club.

Ricardo Barcalo, the only candidate who has so far confirmed his intention to run, mentioned during the week that he had talked to potential coaches, but not to Marcellin, whose current contract expires at the end of June.

In 18 months at the club Marceline has created a competitive bloc of players and seen how young guys like Nika Williams, Unai Vencedor and Dani Vivian have become regulars of the first team.

Despite the ups and downs, it’s hard to see how anyone could have done a better job than him, and Saturday’s result only strengthens his cause.

4 The secret battle for relegation continues until the end

At the wrong end of the table, the bottom three Levante, Alaves and Granada scored (although Levante’s draw away from Valencia will feel like a defeat), while one point above the relegation zone Cadiz also took a big point away from Seville and Mallorca. lost only an odd goal away to Barcelona.

Due to the fact that the fighting parties are gaining shape during the run-in, the fight for relegation to the league looks as if it may well move to the last game of the season.
