Real Madrid players insult Pique during title celebration

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.

Real Madrid star Isco has confirmed he will continue at the Santiago Bernabeu next season after Los Blancos lifted the La Liga title with a 2-0 victory over Malaga on Sunday (21 May).

'We deserve it, ' said Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored the first goal in a 2-0 win inside two minutes. "We have won a very hard league against one of the best teams in the world in Barca and Zidane has done a phenomenal job".

Florentino Perez has worked with the likes of Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti in the recent past but considers Zinedine Zidane to be "the best coach in the world".

Real Madrid began their league campaign with four consecutive wins stretching their La Liga winning streak, which is a club record, stretching to 16 matches.

The FC crew assess whether Isco or a healthy Gareth Bale should start for Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Ronaldo said he was glad to be of help to his team that won Madrid's first title in five years.

Madrid supporters have been fond of Isco since he joined from Malaga in 2013 and he was delighted to win the title in the Spanish capital, which he feels has become his home.

"I would love to play with him [Zidane], we all know his qualities", Dybala told Sky Sport Italia. "Especially earlier in the season at home and we have paid for that".

In the big games the Catalans raised their game and got the results but consistency was lacking and that is what Real was able to deliver.

The Portugal international's contract ends this June, and with no sign yet of an extension being agreed with Madrid, local reports say he has received offers from Chinese club Hebei Fortune, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan.

Real Madrid knew they had to be at their very best with Lionel Messi and Barcelona lurking, as you always have to be.

With Barcelona constantly on their tail, this was one of those times when Real did not crumble under the pressure.

The former Barca captain has won eight trophies in three seasons in charge and can add another one with the Copa del Rey final to come against Alaves next weekend.
