Good morning everybody


Using its backups before the Champions League semifinals, Madrid earned a record-extending 35th Liga title with a comfortable 4-0 home win over Espanyol on Saturday.


Real Madrid's players celebrate the victory after a Spanish La Liga football match between RCD Espanyol and Real Madrid in Madrid, Spain, on April 30, 2022. 


Players and coaches celebrated with the crowd at Santiago Bernabu Stadium long after the match ended, then paraded to the team's usual party spot at Cibeles plaza, but there was not a lot of time to rejoice. 
On Wednesday, Madrid is back at the Bernabu to host Manchester City in the second leg of the Champions League semifinals. Madrid lost 4-3 in the first match in England.
"We know we have an important match ahead of us, but today we have to celebrate," said Brazilian veteran Marcelo, who reached a milestone with his 24th career title with Madrid, the most in the club's history.

"We have to enjoy it, this could help us on Wednesday," said Carlo Ancelotti, who became the first coach to win the top five European leagues. The Italian manager won with AC Milan in Serie A, Chelsea in the English Premier League, Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1, and Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.
Several thousand fans packed the Cibeles plaza to welcome the champions, who mixed messages of celebration for the league title and motivation for Wednesday's match. 



The crowd cheered loudly when Marcelo draped the Cibeles statue with Madrid's flag and scarf.
Rodrygo scored twice and Marco Asensio and substitute Karim Benzema added on to give Madrid its second league title in three seasons, and third in six years.


Madrid has an insurmountable lead with four rounds to go. It was 17 points in front of Sevilla, which drew with Cdiz 1-1 on Friday, and 18 points ahead of Barcelona, which hosts Mallorca on Sunday.
Ancelotti rested most of his regular starters against Espanyol, including Benzema and his attacking teammate Vincius Jnior. Only goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and midfielders Casemiro and Luka Modric made the starting lineup.






Benzema, Vincius and Toni Kroos entered the match in the second half, and Benzema closed the scoring in the 81st for his league-leading 26th goal.
Casemiro had to play improvised as a central defender because David Alaba was out injured and Nacho Fernndez and der Milit?o were suspended.
Marcelo started at left back and surpassed the 23 titles won by great Francisco "Paco" Gento, who died this year at age 88. The 33-year-old Brazilian tied Gento when Madrid won the Spanish Super Cup in January, a few days before Gento's death.
Marcelo gave the pass to countryman Rodrygo to open the scoring from near the penalty spot in the 33rd minute. Rodrygo added to the lead 10 minutes later and Marco Asensio scored the third goal in the 55th. Gabriel & Co. fine jewelry
