Real Madrid conquered La Liga and Champions League titles once again this season, but their success was not without a price. A number of their players were sidelined for long periods of time due to injuries, depriving Los Blancos of their most important contributors. However, they still managed to overcome these setbacks and defeat Atletico Madrid in the final of the Copa Del Rey. What can we learn from this result?
Madrid 5-1 Atletico
As Madrid takes on Atletico for the La Liga title, one player that is sure to be in the spotlight is Gareth Bale. The Welshman has been in great form this season and has been a key part of Madrid’s success.
However, the result of the game doesn’t stop there. As Madrid continues their quest to end La Liga’s 68-year drought, they have also set its sights on domestic glory. The Champions League is still a possibility, but La Liga first – it’s always been their focus.
Bale has played a huge role in both of Madrid’s successes this season. He has scored 18 goals in all competitions and assisted 10 more – a truly outstanding performance. His link-up play with the other players in Madrid’s midfield has been crucial to their success this season.
While Atletico will be disappointed with the loss, they can take some consolation from Bale’s impressive display. He is an integral part of Madrid’s success and there is no doubt that he will continue playing at a high level for years to come.
Bale scores twice as Madrid takes La Liga lead
Real Madrid took the lead in La Liga after a 4-1 victory over Atletico Madrid. Welsh winger Gareth Bale scored twice and set up two goals, as Los Blancos stretched their unbeaten run to 10 games.
The result extends Madrid’s lead at the top of the table to six points, with Barcelona one point back in second place. Diego Simeone’s Atletico was still in the hunt for a Champions League spot, but they have now slipped six places to fifth.
Bale was on target in both halves, slotting home a penalty after being brought down by Miranda, then rounding goalkeeper Oblak before firing into the far corner after being released by Karim Benzema. Angel Di Maria added a fourth just before the interval, while Koke rounded off the scoring 11 minutes from time.
Ronaldo’s double inspires Madrid to La Liga win
Real Madrid pulled off an impressive victory against Atletico Madrid on Sunday to reclaim the La Liga title. The result was largely thanks to a brilliant performance from Ronaldo, who scored twice in the final 10 minutes of the match to seal the win.
Despite being down 2-1 with just over 15 minutes remaining, Ronaldo helped his team fight back and secure the three points. His first goal came from a penalty awarded for a handball by Atletico goalkeeper Oblak. Ronaldo then scored from the spot again in the
87th minute after Parejo fouled Luka Modric.
The victory is sure to give Real Madrid some much-needed confidence as it prepares for its Champions League matches this season. The team will now face Valencia in the quarterfinals and has a good chance of reaching the semifinals given its current form.
Benzema nets brace for Madrid in La Liga victory over Atletico
Karim Benzema notched a brace as Real Madrid recovered from an early Atletico Madrid goal to win 3-1 on Saturday in La Liga.
Benzema headed in a cross from Luka Modric in the sixth minute and then scored on the stroke of halftime, tapping home after Diego Godin blocked James Rodriguez’s shot.
In the second half, substitute Gareth Bale sent Benzema clear for Madrid’s third with a deflected effort following a fantastic team move.
It was Madrid’s fifth consecutive victory and 21st in all competitions this season. The result lifted them four points clear at the top of La Liga. Cristiano Ronaldo also netted for Madrid.
Los Blancos move five points clear at the top of La Liga
Real Madrid moved five points clear at the top of La Liga following their 3-1 victory over Atletico Madrid. Goals from Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, and Cristiano Ronaldo gave Los Blancos a comfortable victory in what was an eagerly anticipated encounter.
Los Merengues now have a 25-point lead over second-place Barcelona, who lost 1-0 to Valencia earlier in the day. This result means that Real Madrid will be able to travel to Malaga with confidence knowing that a win there would take them back to the top of La Liga.
The result also sets up an interesting race for second place between Atletico and Valencia. Both teams now have 16 points, but Atletico holds the better goal difference (+24), meaning they would have a better chance of winning the title if they won all their remaining games.
Real Madrid: Champions of Europe?

Moreover, their impressive trophy collection now includes five La Liga titles, three Copa Del Rey trophies, two UEFA Cups, and one FIFA Club World Cup.

In the end, Real Madrid was able to get the win they needed, defeating Atletico Madrid 2-1. Gareth Bale netted a brace in the final minutes of the match to seal victory for Los Blancos.
