Real Madrid two wins away from clinching title

Share

Karim Benzema’s penalty put the league leaders in front after Ximo Navarro’s foul on Ferland Mendy.

Benzema then teed up Marco Asensio for the second, awarded after VAR overruled an incorrect offside decision.

Second-placed Barcelona trail by four points and, if they lose at Real Vallodolid on Saturday, Real can clinch the title by beating Granada on Monday.

Regardless, two wins – or one win and two draws – from their remaining three games will bring the championship to Zinedine Zidane’s side.

If Real can finish the job, it will be only their second title in eight years, with their most recent coming in 2016-17, during Zidane’s last spell as manager.
