Ronaldo and co. were able to score two unanswered goals to defeat Malaga 0-2 on the last day. It was a fitting end to a season where many doubters were wishing them failure, but this team was able to surpass expectations time and time again to prove everyone wrong.
Madrid has been close to unstoppable this year, offensively speaking, as no goalkeeper has been able to keep a clean sheet against them all year. In fast, the last time a goalkeeper kept them to 0 goals was in the Champions League semifinal against Manchester City, from last year.

And, of course, Ronaldo scored to help his team to victory.

His 40th club goal of the season came less than 2 minutes in and a tap-in from teammate Karim Benzema combined to give Madrid the victory.
When it comes to the glory, many are pointing to manager Zinedine Zidane’s stroke of luck since taking over the role from Rafa Benitez in January of last year. At some point though, you just can’t call it luck anymore.
In 2015-16, he lead the team to within a point of Barcelona for the La Liga title, and when the dust settled, he secured a Champions League final victory against Atletico only a week after. Then, this year, the club has claimed the UEFA Super Cup and in December, the they claimed Club World Cup as well.
Congrats to Real Madrid!
