Benzema Leads Madrid to 34th La-Liga Title

Karim Benzema’s double fired Real Madrid to their 34th La Liga title in a tight 2-1 victory over Villarreal.

The Frenchman’s powerful low strike in the 29th minute put the hosts in control and Benzema extended Real’s lead by firing in a retaken penalty in the 76th minute at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.

The original spot-kick taken by Sergio Ramos was chalked off as he bizarrely attempted to pass it to Benzema, who ran into the box before referee Hernandez Hernandez blew his whistle.
